Yeonmi Park, Political Activists On How Bitcoin Enables Freedom Today

Posted on

Why do people say that Bitcoin is freedom? The expression, widely used to represent Bitcoin’s capability to bring power to those oppressed by their governments or communities, has become a cliché that many parrot without stopping to think through what it means.

At Bitcoin 2022, the Human Rights Foundation’s (HRF’s) chief strategy officer Alex Gladstein moderated a conversation between Palestinian democracy advocate Fadi Elsalameen, Togolese human rights activist Farida Nabourema, and North Korean defector and activist Yeonmi Park. United by a quest for freedom, the panelists discussed the role that Bitcoin can play in empowering individuals worldwide.
