Explain Bitcoin to your mom this Mother’s Day

The following HTML code includes an opinion editorial by Hector Alvero, a Bitcoin educator, who co-hosts the Broward County Bitcoiners meetup. The article discusses the importance of sharing the benefits of Bitcoin with loved ones, specifically with mothers on Mother’s Day. The author encourages readers to take the time to teach their mothers about Bitcoin’s impact on economic security and how it protects against inflation. The article acknowledges that Bitcoin can be difficult to understand, especially for older individuals who are more resistant to change. The author suggests breaking up Bitcoin topics into smaller, relatable pieces to make it easier for mothers to understand. The article concludes by emphasizing the importance of patience and persistence when teaching loved ones about Bitcoin.

My mother grew up in Cuba and was a teenager when Fidel Castro came to power in the late 1950s. She remembers that her family’s small savings, which her grandfather kept in a glass jar hidden in the house, became worthless when the new regime took power. Her grandfather refused to surrender the money and buried the jar in the backyard. He believed that eventually everything would return to how it was before and that the old currency would be accepted again.

However, that never happened, and my grandparents had to leave the island with my mother soon after. They had to leave behind the worthless pieces of paper buried in the backyard of the house, which they also no longer owned due to the new government’s abolition of private property rights. They lost their money, house, and barely escaped with their lives. When I talked to her about Bitcoin as property that no one can take away from her, she understood it.

Give The Gift Of Bitcoin This Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day, I encourage you to try again. Try again as your mother encouraged you to do when she taught you to ride a bike, trying again even when you kept falling. Try again as my mother did when she taught me to parallel park, even after I ran over the garbage can… twice.

She never gave up on you, and now it’s your turn to believe in her and return the favor. Now is the time when you can show her that those lessons of persistence, patience, and love have taken hold. This Mother’s Day is your chance to save her life and future and repay her for giving both of those things to you.
