What does the treasury’s head say? He said the drafting of such documents is necessary to maintain the viability of bitcoin bonds, which were offered in November 2021. He added:

“[This is] to provide a legal structure and legal certainty to everyone who buys the bitcoin bond.”

What are the prospects? As previously stated, the investors have already invested $300 million in El Salvador bonds. Part of the $1 billion in bond proceeds will be used to fund the Bitcoin City initiative. The other part will be used by the government to buy bitcoins.
