Bitcoin is Spreading
Over the the past year, as part of Bitcoin.org’s ongoing content translation initiative to help spread information about Bitcoin all around the world, many people have helped extend and update the site into their own native languages.
Thanks to community donations and a sponsorship from Paxful, translators throughout 2018 received bitcoin bonuses in appreciation for the time and efforts that they had spent volunteering. Bitcoin.org content is available in 25+ languages including:
- Portuguese (Brazilian)
As the original website domain registered by Satoshi Nakamoto in association with the technology, and one of the first results people encounter when searching the web for more information about Bitcoin, this accomplishment enables billions of people to potentially learn more about it and how to get started using it as easily as possible. Also, despite being a privately owned site, Bitcoin.org’s code is open-source. There have been thousands of commits and contributions from hundreds of contributors and translators. The open source nature by which the site is run, helps to ensure that new users are still able to find unbiased and qualitative information about Bitcoin, to make their own informed decisions about which products and services might be the optimal choice for them to use.
In 2019, translation coverage will continue to expand across the site into areas where translated content previously wasn’t available, areas such as the developer documentation, for example.
If you speak English and another language and would like to help spread the word about Bitcoin, it’s easy to get started!
Thanks goes to everyone who contributes to make this possible.
