First Country in the World to Purchase BTC: President Bukele Confirms El Salvador 200 BTC Purchase

The El Salvador government even against the support of local groups and influences is a firm believer in the positive changes in society and economy brought on by the cryptocurrency market.

Nayib Bukele, President of El Salvador conveyed via Twitter that ahead of the announcement of the new cryptocurrency legal tender law on September 7, the government purchased 200 Bitcoin (BTC) on Monday.

The El Salvador Congress just passed the Bitcoin (BTC) fund worth a total of $150 million, which resulted in the first purchase of 200 Bitcoin (BTC). As the new law is enforced, the Bitcoin (BTC) acquisition will be utilized in the conversion of Bitcoin (BTC) to USD. The price of the acquisition was roughly $10.36 million at the time.

June 2021 marked the acceptance of Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender from El Salvador, and the news was bitter-sweet for the actors involved. While the Bitcoin (BTC) and crypto community welcomed such a decision, others were quite opposed to the idea. Among the opposers were The World Bank, the International Monetary Fund – IMF, and some internal pressure.

Bank of America was one of the supporters of the El Salvador initiative by claiming that there are at the very least 4 benefits: promote and speed up the finance digitalization process, reorganize remittances, open foreign investment opportunities, as well as expand choices for customers.

With more than 200 ATMs located in El Salvador, the new law is part of the long-term investment plan which allows nationals to hold and withdraw digital assets. Chivo, the country’s own Bitcoin wallet is also in the works.
