Samson Mow claims Mexico could adopt Bitcoin

Samson Mow, chief strategy officer at bitcoin infrastructure company Blockstream since 2017 and an advisor to El Salvador during its bitcoin adoption, announced that he is leaving the company to focus on promoting “nation-state adoption of bitcoin.”

Mow indicated that Mexico is “on the list” of countries that could adopt Bitcoin as legal tender.

“I plan to focus on Bitcoin adoption by nation-state” Mow posted on Twitter, adding “it seems like a turning point in Bitcoin’s evolution now – we are on the verge of mass adoption, and I think I can make it happen quicker”.

Last month, Mow had an exchange with the third richest man in Mexico, Ricardo Salinas Pliego, in which they discussed Bitcoin mining.

In addition, he posted a photo of himself with Mexican Senator Indira Kempis, who is working to make Bitcoin legal tender in the country.

The bitcoin price is up more than 20% since falling below $35k last week. This week, Bitcoin and crypto prices soared this week as sanctions on Russia pushed people towards Bitcoin.
