“One hundred extra coins acquired with a discount,” is how Bukele commented on the purchase, referring to the fall in the first cryptocurrency's exchange rate.

What is known about El Salvador's bitcoin fund? Currently, with the new bitcoin acquisition, there are 1220 coins on the balance sheet of the state fund.
