Bitcoin in El Salvador: An Adoption Model with a Strategy from the Government

A year has passed since the Legislative Assembly of El Salvador approved the Bitcoin Law, encouraged by President Nayib Bukele. With these regulations, the country became the first to provide legal tender to the first digital asset.

While governments and financial institutions worldwide cling to centralized currencies they control at will to issue infinitely, El Salvador has embraced a crypto asset like bitcoin; this asset works without an established human issuer, no administration, no employees, and a finite supply.

It means that the smallest nation in the region, with more than 70% of its population unbanked, decided to believe in an inclusive financial structure in which everyone can play an active role. With its action, the administration acknowledges that the country’s development has historically been limited.

Due to the dollarization decline, which happened more than 20 years ago, El Salvador does not have the power to print funds to solve its financial struggles. For this reason, it has had to count on entities such as the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank to ask for loans, borrowing, and then unbalancing its economic system.

One of the motivators of El Salvador to encourage the acceptance of bitcoin is the search for new chances to reach a progress status. This with the idea of ​​approaching a decentralized financial system that allows it to carry out its economic policy, taking steps in parallel to other options to dollarization that has limited its ability to recover the economy.
