“We, as the industry, won. Now we are just sorting out the details of what it means,” said IOG chief executive, Charles Hoskinson. He discussed El Salvador’s adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender, in a recent video, titled, “Congratulations Bitcoin.”

Hoskinson opined that crypto tokens like Bitcoin stand for the “future of money.” Now, “the majority of people under the age of 25 have a positive view on cryptocurrencies, and a lot of them own them. That’s the future. Their children will grow up with those values and those beliefs about the nature of money,” he said.
