The El Salvador president noted that his country is the first globally to adopt the Bitcoin as a legal tender. He pointed out that they received backlash from world organizations and countries that called them “Bitcoin Experiment.”
Responding to the backlash, Bukele said while the rest of the world was frowning upon them as a mere ‘experiment,’ El Salvador was changing the face of its economy through Bitcoin mass adoption.

Latest Bitcoin headache Bukele faces in El Salavador
The country’s latest challenge with its Bitcoin law is recent allegations that Salvadorians Bitcoin are disappearing in their state-backed Chivo wallet.
Local media in the Central American country says many residents have experienced the disappearing while the government is yet to address the issue.
Indeed, Bukele is yet to say anything in response to the allegation, while residents say they expect a reversal or a refund.
Beyond this, El Salvador has faced myriad of challenges both within and outside over its Bitcoin adoption.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other world bodies and many countries have turned their backs on the Central American country since it adopted the digital asset.
Bukele, however, says El Salvador is fine with its new found bride (Bitcoin).
