There were lots of doubts and criticisms targeting El Salvadorian President Nayib Bukele. Some people stated that he influenced the legislature to approve the move. Other critical financial analysts even predicted a negative influence on the country’s economic situation following his actions. The country has completed the move and is now using Bitcoin for financial transactions. Also, the President keeps accumulating BTC whenever there is a dip in price.

Colonel Charles Wekwete confirmed this information. He also declared that the blockchain offers both positives and negatives. The negatives he stressed were money laundering, illegal cross-border transfers, facilitating unlawful actions with unlawful cash flows, etc. However, due to these risks associated with the blockchain, many authorities are poised to develop regulations that can curb them. Also, the rules will protect consumers’ interests and protect Zimbabwe’s financial future. For now, the country hasn’t declared anything yet. They are simply consulting experts to know if the move will work. But the government is following National Development Strategy 1, which teaches the digital economic system. The strategy will foster a connection between the existing businesses and the government to develop the digital economy jointly. El Salvador Set The Pace For Bitcoin Since Nayib took the bold step amid criticisms, other countries have considered Bitcoin usage in their economy. Many negative comments concerning the move, and some are still ongoing. However, the first country to adopt Bitcoin seems not to be backing down at all.
