Many people are starting to wonder which country is going to be the leader in the Bitcoin revolution.
Today, James and his wife, Claudia, talk about the differences between their two home countries.
Unlike James who was born in the U.S. where there are many opportunities for wealth and success, Claudia was born in Argentina where the government is corrupt and there aren't many jobs available.
She describes Argentina as a true "choose yourself" country, where the people have to worry about where their next meal is coming from. You either work hard... or you don't survive.
Find out why James says Bitcoin is on its way to being the currency of choice in Argentina...
Could this be where Bitcoin first erupts into a country's economy?
