Binance Has a Crypto Training Program in El Salvador

President Nayib Bukele is Committed to the Fight Against Gangs
Binance hiring the youth in El Salvador comes at a time when President Nayib Bukele is leading a nationwide crackdown on gangs. In a tweet earlier today, President Bukele updated his followers that over 12,000 gang members had been arrested in the last 21 days due to El Salvador’s government instilling emergency powers for 30 days to tackle an increase in gang-related homicides.
Bitfinex and Tether Raise $2M For Families Affected by Gang Violence
According to the Wall Street Journal, most of the murder victims were working-class citizens who were often the target of extortion by the MS-13 and 18th Street gangs. Furthermore, the recent increment in violence was triggered by a breakdown of the truce between gangs and the government.
The crypto exchange of Bitfinex and the company of Tether has launched a funding campaign to help the families of those affected by the gang violence in El Salvador. The two companies initially donated 25 Bitcoin, with the amount soon rising to 36 BTC due to the crypto community’s donations.
Bitfinec and Tether CTO Paolo Ardoino recently updated via Twitter that donations were now close to $2 million.
