HRF Gifts 2 Billion Sats to Bitcoin Development

The Human Rights Foundation, a Bitcoin proponent and supporter of the Oslo Freedom Forum, has donated $475,000 to 10 Bitcoin projects:

“The funding will support areas such as censorship-resistant communication, Bitcoin education in authoritarian regimes, core development and building local communities and education, with a focus on Africa and Southeast Asia.”

Bitcoin donations to open-source projects are important because there is often little funding for these projects since they are not run for profit.

Italy is Teaching Highschool Students About Bitcoin

The project aims to bring more Bitcoin education to high schools. It will host meetings and provide formal training for Bitcoin learning in high school settings, such as wallet creation, seed generation, and full node setup.
