CBDC launches across the world have been followed by some or the other kind of regulatory measures against cryptocurrencies, levying the Mexican pro-crypto community under potential threat. These CBDCs are mostly backed by the native currency of their respective country, towards which the Mexican crypto community does not appear keen.\u00a0In fact, one of Mexico\u2019s richest man is a Bitcoin extremist himself. Ricardo Salinas, founder and chairman of Grupo Salinas recently took to Twitter, sharing a video of himself where he is warning people against fiat and encouraging Bitcoin investments. \u201cStay away from fiat money. The dollar, the euro, the yen, or the peso,\u00a0 they are all the same story, it\u2019s fake money made of paper and lies. The central banks are printing more money than ever before. Invest in bitcoin,\u201d\u00a0Salinas said. The @therationalroot did a good job with the subtitles! I also had two other pieces of advice :1 stay away from envy and envious people, nothing good comes from them.2 liberty, innovation and competition will get us to prosperity. https:\/\/t.co\/I4NyCODKsk \u2014 Ricardo Salinas Pliego (@RicardoBSalinas) December 26, 2021 Ricardo Salinas Pliego has maintained his name in crypto-related headlines given his consistent pro-crypto efforts. Earlier this m0nth, the Mexican retail giant, Elektra which is owned by Salinas became the first retail store in Mexico to accept Bitcoin payments. Furthermore, to escalate these Bitcoin payments, Elektra also offered the additional 20 percent discount to its customers who use crypto to make a purchase. Ricardo\u2019s efforts toward Bitcoin adoption in Mexico have always been noteworthy. Earlier this year, he also\u00a0revealed that his bank, Banco Azteca became the first to accept Bitcoin in Mexico. Ricardo, who himself holds a considerable amount of Bitcoin, claimed that BTC posses global value and must be part of everyone\u2019s financial portfolio.
