In a groundbreaking move, Dr. Saifedean Ammous, the renowned author of the influential book “The Bitcoin Standard,” has been appointed as the economic advisor to the National Bitcoin Office of El Salvador.
This appointment comes as El Salvador continues to embrace BTC as a legal tender, setting a precedent for other nations to follow suit. The National Bitcoin Office of El Salvador took to Twitter on May 30 to make the exciting announcement. The tweet read:
When the author of the Bitcoin Standard met the leader of Bitcoin Country, great things were bound to happen. We are excited to announce that @saifedean is joining us as an Economic Advisor to the National Bitcoin Office of El Salvador. Welcome to the winning team, Dr. Ammous!
Dr. Ammous, who has been a prominent advocate for BTC and an expert in Austrian economics, recently traveled to El Salvador to deliver lectures to the students of the prestigious BTC & Lightning devs program organized by CUBO+.
Following his engaging sessions, he had the opportunity to meet with President Nayib Bukele and share his insights on the remarkable benefits of embracing economic liberty.
The addition of Dr. Ammous to President Bukele’s BTC team, which already includes well-known figures like Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert, signifies the administration’s commitment to leveraging BTC for various economic policies.
With his vast knowledge as an Austrian economist and best-selling author, Dr. Ammous is expected to provide invaluable guidance in shaping El Salvador’s economic landscape.
What sets this appointment apart is Dr. Ammous’ decision to decline any form of remuneration for his advisory role. His sole motivation lies in supporting President Bukele’s bold policy of economic liberty and BTC adoption.
By joining the “winning team,” Dr. Ammous demonstrates his unwavering commitment to the cause and his belief in the potential of BTC to revolutionize financial systems worldwide.
