Earlier he confirmed the purchase of 400 Bitcoins which are worth 20.9 million dollars today. The US dollars have been the country’s legal currency for the last twenty years. However, this risky move has spread up fear in the public too.

There is a probability of more than 6.5 million citizens rejecting this idea. So, they would be using US dollars. Citizens also held protests in the country against the decision amid concerns for the poor. Concerning the public, around 70% of people were against this step (according to a survey conducted by the Central American University).

“This Bitcoin is a currency that does not exist, a currency that will not benefit the poor but the rich.”

The question is “Why is El Salvador using Bitcoin?” This is because the president believes that legalizing crypto can lead to a drastic spike in the country’s investment and financial development. Since last month, the government is making efforts to install above 200 Bitcoin Teller Machines also. The ATMs will allow the easy conversion of Bitcoin into US dollars without any commission.

The law says that all citizens would be able to pay the taxes in form of crypto. However, the shops will show the rates in form of digital currency. Furthermore, they are also launching their own digital wallet by the name “Chivo.” This wallet will offer free 30 dollars to encourage crypto adoption.
