In 2021, El Salvador initiated its Bitcoin purchases and became the first country to recognize Bitcoin as legal tender.

Following the crypto crash, which led to the collapse of various crypto firms, including the exchange FTX in November 2022, there was significant speculation regarding the nation’s financial stability.

Reports indicate that one year into its Bitcoin experiment, El Salvador suffered a loss of $60 million.

Bukele’s resolute support for Bitcoin has garnered global attention. He regularly promotes El Salvador’s favorable stance on the cryptocurrency to international audiences.

On December 25, BeInCrypto highlighted El Salvador’s government’s open invitation to foreigners interested in contributing Bitcoin donations to its development programs.

This follows the nation’s earlier report of a consistent increase in the number of foreign residents relocating to the country.

“Some foreign promoters of the digital currency have moved to the country, mainly to beach communities.”

Meanwhile, in December 2023, the National Bitcoin Office (ONBTC) of El Salvador announced that the Volcano Bond has received regulatory approval from the Digital Assets Commission (CNAD).
