John Kerry Hints Bitcoin Training is Underway at US Embassies
Bitcoin may soon be required learning at US embassies.
The topic of how the nation’s diplomatic institutions are preparing for digital changes came up during a recent appearance in Silicon Valley by US Secretary of State John Kerry, a former senator and US presidential candidate.
Speaking at the Virtuous Circle Conference on 10th October, Kerry was asked about the presence of a “digital officer” at embassy sites in foreign nations. Specifically, the moderator inquired whether an embassy officer “needs to be able to speak with fluency about bitcoin and dark web”.
