A YouTuber started traveling the world to see if he could survive using Bitcoin as payment alone.

In the latest installment of Cointelegraph’s Crypto Stories series, Paco from India explained how he started his journey from the city of Bengaluru, learning from the example of travel pioneers who came before him, including Nellie Bly, who recently circumnavigated the world 19th century in less than 73 days. Paco had various jobs before finding out about Bitcoin (BTC) and making a big decision.

“This is 2021,” said Paco. “I will travel the world with Bitcoin.”

The YouTuber added:

“When my journey began I had zero dollars. I sold my furniture, got $200 in bitcoin, and as soon as I started on the first day, the first bitcoin meeting we had in Bengaluru, a guy came and gave me $200 in bitcoin […] My plan is to go to 40 countries in 400 days.”

Paco said he was held back from his travel plans by the ongoing pandemic – particularly when the Omicron variant hit India. However, he had visited eight different countries and was in Africa at the time of the Cointelegraph interview.
