YouTuber Paco from India explains his travels using Bitcoin

A YouTuber began traveling the world to see if he could survive solely on Bitcoin as a means of payment.

In the latest episode of Cointelegraph’s ‘Crypto Stories’ series, Paco from India explained how he started his journey from the city of Bengaluru and learned from the example of travel pioneers who came before him, such as Nellie Bly, who circumnavigated the world at the end of the 19th century in less than 73 days. Paco had several jobs before reading about Bitcoin (BTC) and making a big decision.

“We are in 2021,” Paco said. “I’m going to travel the world using Bitcoin.”

The YouTuber added:

“When my journey started, I had zero dollars. I sold my furniture, I got $200 worth of Bitcoin, and as soon as I started the first day, the first Bitcoin meetup we had in Bengaluru, a guy came and gave me $200 worth of Bitcoin. […] My plan is to go to 40 countries in 400 days.”

Paco said his travel plans were delayed by the ongoing pandemic, especially when the Omicron variant hit India. However, he had visited eight different countries and was in Africa at the time of the Cointelegraph interview.

“I feel like Africa needs Bitcoin more than anyone else in the world,” he said. “All currencies are falling, countries are falling – it’s a big blow, it’s happening. Fix money, fix the world.”
