Wikipedia has listed Bitcoin (BTC) as one of El Salvador’s official currencies —shortly after, the country turned BTC into an official legal tender approved by a supermajority in the Salvadoran Congress.

  • El Salvador became the first country to accept Bitcoin as a legal tender. It will take 90 days for the law to be enacted, which will allow merchants and the general population to prepare. 

  • Besides, the country will grant citizenship to anyone that invests Bitcoin into the nation’s economy.

  • The recent adoption by less-developed countries has given a lot of discussion to the crypto community. Many at first thought that first-world countries would be the first to pass laws to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender or use blockchain technology. 

  • But cryptocurrencies have proven to be alternative store values and a way to protect oneself from hyperinflation. Soon after El Salvador announced Bitcoin as a legal Tender, Paraguay started working on projects involving Bitcoin and PayPal. Likewise, Panamá is working on a proposal to embrace BTC and other cryptos as well.
