As countries in Asia and Europe are blocking Bitcoin, the Republic of El Salvador, a sovereign country in Central America, approved the proposal to adopt Bitcoin as its legal tender, attracting global spotlight.
Nayib Bukele, the President of El Salvador, sent proposed legislation to the country’s congress that would make the crypto-currency legal tender in the Central American nation. The Congress of El Salvador voted 62–22 in favor of the proposal on June 9th, making it the first country in the world to officially classify Bitcoin as legal currency. In addition, El Salvador would offer citizenship to people who showed evidence they had invested in at least three Bitcoins.
