bitcoin, Dignidad Humana, desarrollo sostenible, ODS, Derechos Humanos


Este escrito surge ante la falta de un texto que ilumine la historia de bitcoin más desde una perspectiva sobre la dignidad humana y menos desde los negocios o el desarrollo técnico. Se sugiere la lectura de este escrito para iniciarse y descubrir facetas más sociales de lo que implica bitcoin, los aspectos relacionados a la dignidad humana y el desarrollo sostenible. De dónde viene y hacia donde puede ir, si cada uno/a de nosotros/as toma acción.
