The president of the Central American nation also mentioned that the bitcoin wallet app works anywhere with a cell phone connection without the need of any recharge plan, making it completely free to use. 

 

Outcome 

The announcement was welcomed by Bitcoin users and investors globally, with experts speculating the decision to be a game-changer in the crypto space. This will increase Bitcoin’s global user base by 2.5% if 4.5 million Salvadorans start using Bitcoin for their daily transactions.

 

As many countries are trying to regulate digital currencies. This comes as a major boon for Bitcoin and other Cryptocurrencies as it faces opposition from El Salvador's minority political party and the World Bank.
