El Salvador becomes first country to adopt bitcoin as legal tender
El Salvador is the first country in the world to formally adopt bitcoin as legal tender. Last night, lawmakers in the country’s Congress voted by a “supermajority” in favour of President Nayib Bukele's Bitcoin Law, receiving 62 out of 84 of the legislature’s vote. "It will bring financial inclusion, investment, tourism, innovation and economic development for our country," Bukele said.
