We're looking for writers who can tell stories about people using bitcoin in their daily lives. If we publish your story, we'll pay you $200 USD.

What kind of stories is Azteco looking for?


We’re looking for short articles that describe how real people are using bitcoin in their daily lives. We’re not looking for articles about how bitcoin works or why people should start using bitcoin.

For example, here are a few articles that we wrote ourselves:



Why does Azteco want to share these kinds of stories?


First up, we want to encourage writers from all over the world to create and share stories about how real people in their local communities are using bitcoin. We want to nurture and reward the next generation of writers, not replace them with generative AI tools. We also want writers to focus on creating human stories that will inspire and educate other people.

Next up, we want people from all over the world to read and share stories about how real people are using bitcoin in their daily lives. We want to change the narrative from “bitcoin is an investment asset” to “bitcoin is for everyday spending, saving, and sending”. We want more people to read about how bitcoin changes lives, not how bitcoin technology works.

Editorial guidelines




Articles should be 500-800 words in length and should include 4-5 supporting photographs.

Articles should ideally have a title and structure that follows a standard pattern: "How [name] in [country] uses bitcoin to [do something useful]".

For example:

  • "How [name] in [country] uses bitcoin to pay for [something]"

  • "How [name] in [country] uses bitcoin to save for [something]"

  • "How [name] in [country] uses bitcoin to support their family in [country]"



See our existing articlesGo to /stories page for best practice examples.


Articles should ideally be structured into three clear sections, with a direct quote acting as the subtitle for each section.

For example:

  • Title: "How Kgothatso uses bitcoin in South Africa instead of a bank account"

  • Section 1: “I use bitcoin for everything in my daily life”

  • Section 2: “Bitcoin encourages me to be disciplined with my spending”

  • Section 3: “Gig workers in South Africa prefer getting paid in bitcoin”
