El Salvador's President Nayib Bukele has announced that the country will start buying one Bitcoin (BTC) every day. The policy will take effect on November 18.
El Salvador will start buying one Bitcoin every day, said President Nayib Bukele. The last time the country made a Bitcoin purchase was in July 2022, purchasing 80 BTC at a price of $19,000 per coin. Now its value has decreased significantly and at the time of writing it was $16,840.
According to Buy Bitcoin Worldwide, El Salvador allegedly owns 2,381 BTC at an average purchase price of $43,357. However, there are no records that would confirm the exact price. The country has reportedly spent about $103.23 million to buy Bitcoin to date.
