The current bear market doesn’t seem to have deterred President Bukele’s curiosity within the flagship digital asset. Beneath Bukele, El Salvador grew to become the primary nation to make BTC a authorized tender and the primary sovereign state to buy the cryptocurrency.
President Bukele had beforehand predicted that Bitcoin’s worth might attain $100,000.
El Salvador’s final Bitcoin buy was on June 30, 2022. Then, the nation purchased 80 Bitcoin at a median price of $19,000. Cumulatively, the federal government has spent over $100 million to amass a complete of two,381 BTC –the present bear market circumstances have dropped the asset’s worth to lower than $40 million.
In the meantime, the Central American nation was briefly within the information just lately after rumors emerged that it saved its Bitcoin on the bankrupt crypto alternate FTX. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao labeled this misinformation as President Bukele advised him that the nation doesn’t have any Bitcoin on FTX and “by no means had any enterprise with them.”
President Bukele described BTC as the other of FTX and likened the struggling alternate to a Ponzi scheme.
The founding father of TRON Community, Justin Solar, expressed willingness to repeat President Bukele’s 1 BTC per day buy.
