Today, bitcoin becomes legal tender in El Salvador

Today, September 7th, bitcoin is introduced as legal tender in El Salvador. To incentivize adoption and learning, El Salvador will airdrop $30 worth of BTC to every Salvadorian downloading the Chivo Wallet.

Today is a historic day for bitcoin as El Salvador will become the first country ever to implement bitcoin as legal tender. El Salvador’s president Nayib Bukele has already confirmed that the country has purchased 400 BTC, but the incentive system from the government-supported Chivo app will require further bitcoin purchases onwards.
