Opinion Polls Reveal Most El Salvadorans Disagree with President Bukele’s Push for Bitcoin
Recently, the government passed a law that makes Bitcoin legal in our country. However, some people are criticizing President Nayib Bukele for trying to get people to use Bitcoin.
Lots of people from El Salvador did not think Bitcoin helped them with their finances, according to a survey done by Simeon Canas University. In May 2022, the Francisco Gavidia University Center for Citizen Studies studied people’s opinions too and found 60% of people disagreed with using Bitcoin instead of the United States dollar.
Although some people doubt it, El Salvador is interested in Bitcoin. They are building ‘Bitcoin City’, powered by geothermal energy and funded with something called ‘Volcano Bonds’.
