In a passionate speech at the Bitcoin 2021 event in Miami, Jack Mallers (founder and CEO of Strike) made the biggest Bitcoin announcement of the year. Forget Elon Musk’s shallow crypto tweets. Jack Mallers is talking about real change. In an unexpected twist to his speech, he gave way to a pre-recorded video of the President of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele.
