El Salvador’s never-ending support for Bitcoin
Ever since El Salvador announced its decision to make Bitcoin a legal tender, global nations flipped. Few of the countries who realized the true potential of cryptocurrency vouched, while the rest wished for doom.
Even though the IMF urged them to remove Bitcoin as a legal tender, Nayib Bukele stood steady with his decision. To date, the country has accumulated over 1,801 Bitcoins. El Salvador is also planning to launch its Bitcoin bond.
Even though there might be a few cracks and crevices in the country’s crypto revolution, El Salvador will stay ahead of other countries, with global acceptance right next door.
