El Salvador adopts Bitcoin as legal tender prompting excitement, skepticism

Salvadorans woke on Thursday and reacted with both excitement and skepticism as their country became the first in the world to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender.

The Salvadoran Congress approved President Nayib Bukele’s proposal on Wednesday to embrace the cryptocurrency – a move that delighted the currency’s supporters.

With 62 out of 84 possible votes, lawmakers voted in favour of the move to create a law to adopt Bitcoin, despite concerns about the potential impact on El Salvador’s dealings with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Bukele has touted the use of Bitcoin for its potential to help Salvadorans living abroad to send remittances back home, while saying the U.S. dollar will also continue as legal tender. In practice, El Salvador does not have its own currency.

  1. Canada is not a racist Country.

    The Liberals, The NDP, MSM Outlets like CBC,Global and CTV with their parent Companies like Rogers, Bell etc. These are the ones who have pushed racism in Canada for the past 6 years.

    all so they can gain big government and control, And anyone who opposes them is branded as racists.

    Also if Canada and US were so Racists as the Liberal Left Claims we are, Why do Canada and the US allow immigrants at a high rate? No racist Country would do this.

  2. ……and the ms13 has officially taken over El Salvador.Anyone know about the dark web??!?
    This is absolutely hilarious

  3. Once you understand Bitcoin and I mean research what hard money is then you will understand why Bitcoin is the hardest money out there. I think what El Salvador has done is the best thing for it’s people. El Salvador will go down in history for being the first to adopt Bitcoin and you’ll see alot of countries following suit this year.

    • Thats pretty much what I said in my comment, El Salvador is definitely going in the right direction congrats to them and their people!

    • The fact is, Cryptocurrency is making financial waves and fighting against poverty in this modern era, and the question traders as them self is if this the right time to invest ?
      Before jumping into conclusion I think you should take a look at things first. For the past few days the price of Dogecoin has been fluctuating which means the Market is currently unstable and you can’t tell if it is going bearish or bullish. While others Still continue to trade without the fear of making loss, others are been patient. It all depends on the pattern with which you trade and also the source of your signal. I would say trading has been going smoothly for me , I started with £25,000 and I have accumulated over £113,800 within 3 weeks with the trading strategies given to me by Expert Blian Reinkensmeyer His method are top notch and profitable, obviously he’s the best.

  4. I can understand the Salvadorian people not understanding Bitcoin but res assure, your country made the right move and more countries will begin to follow suit. Congrats to El Salvador and its people 🙏

  5. As usual people out of ignorance are making all sorts of off the cuff remarks about the validity of Bitcoin which usually means they have done little to no research. But hey, thats how most of you drones operate these days anyway.

  6. Fabulous Video ❤️ Lots of Newbies are wondering 😒Was the recent crypto crash bound to happen? Or was it engineered? Is the bull market over for good? Or is the market gaining momentum, preparing for big movements? These are all the questions on all investors mind, well, that’s the traditional nature of a decentralized economy if you ask me. I have met people who are wondering if now is a good time to buy because of the price fluctuation. Truth be told, there is never a time to BUY if you Trade and not Hold, which is why i find trading while you hold your profit before the market sky🚀rocket is better than hold. Lots of investors fall inmove with seeing their coins going UP not thinking of when it goes down. It better to always think of what will bring you down so you avoid it before it happens. This has been my rule since i came in contact with Mr Rick Allen Jr A certified trader with 88% trade accuracy and he tutors me on cryptocurrency. Coming in contact with him has been a new era for me in the crypto sector which is very successful for me and in using his trade signals daily has been profitable and has turn my 0.2585 btc to 1.345 btc in just four weeks of using his accurate trade signals. He can be contact ᴛᴇʟᴇɢʀᴀᴍ @rickjrcryptosignals for inquiries into profitable trading strategy..

    • So eager for coin base to release my coin so I can join, This is a 100% tested program, my cousin just knew about crypto last month, and already making huge profits like a bitcoin Pro Just because he’s trading with Rick program.

    • I have tried 5 programs and pattern before reaching out to Rick, I can swear his program is the best for Now

    • Always backup your trading with a good strategy, else the bear market will hit you so hard, and you might wake up losing your saving, that’s crypto for you

    • This is exactly what Big time investors are talking about, not just you. key thing here is to always trades with a good strategy even if the price goes up or down.

  7. Old folks will always fight the change to the world they know, they don’t have the mental capacity to relearn a new market nor understand it probably
