Known as the first country to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender, El Salvador’s government remains fully convinced of BTC’s long-term potential. In fact, the recent crypto market decline has not dimmed this optimism one bit as the country even added more Bitcoin to its stash taking advantage of crypto’s lower price.

On Monday, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele announced on Twitter that his country bought the dip. The government added 500 BTCs to its stash amidst the massive sell-off that pulled Bitcoin’s price to a ten-month low.

“El Salvador just bought the dip!” Nayib Bukele tweeted. “500 coins at an average USD price of ~$30,744.” This means that the country paid around $15.5 million for the crypto purchase.

The president also highlighted the fact that he already made a paper gain just hours after making the purchase. “I could sell these coins right now and make almost a million dollars in just 11 hours, but of course not,” Bukele added.

Bitcoin plunged to as low as $29,961.93 per coin on Tuesday as both traditional financial and crypto markets suffered massive sell-offs due to the Fed’s aggressive monetary tightening and concerns of a recession. However, the crypto managed to quickly recover and BTC resumed trading at $31,908.84 at the time of writing.

The transaction is El Salvador’s tenth and largest Bitcoin purchase since it started adding the crypto to its balance sheet in September 2021, according to Coindesk. The last purchase was made on January 21, 2022, when it acquired 410 BTCs at an average price of $36,585 per coin.

“El Salvador just bought 410 #bitcoin for only 15 million dollars,” President Nayib Bukele tweeted in January. “Some guys are selling really cheap.”

With its recent purchase, El Salvador’s Bitcoin reserve rose to 2,301 BTCs. The country’s Bitcoin stash is worth around $73.4 million at current prices.

Let me introduce myself I'm Gisela Ursula from Berlin A friend of mine recommended Wizard Brixton to me when I had issues with my Investment. I invested with a broker trade site where I ended up paying more just to withdraw my profit which I paid capital for.
After being convinced of paying 7 times the fee I noticed it is all fraud and these scammers never give up until one has to stop by itself. I lose €305,391.04 Euro to this bitcoin trade broker's scam after I noticed I was being used and scammed I asked for help from a friend called Günter Karl she referred me to Wizard Brixton and I wrote to wizardbrixton AT Gmail DOT com and then explained everything to him, he responded fast and I decided to work with him, in less than 72 hours I received my lost funds. All thanks to Wizard Brixton who gave me back my life again. WhatsApp Wizard Brixton (+1) (807)/ 234. 0428

Knowing Dr Amber has been a blessing to me. His spells are incredible with no side effects. I suffered from brain cancer for years with a lot of bills piled up on my neck. I play the lottery hoping that someday I will win big to clear up my debts, live the good life that I've always dreamt of. I was referred to Dr Amber by a friend of mine in South Africa telling me that he can help me win the lottery. I had a chat with Dr Amber about winning the lottery and he was so confident about his work that made me believe in him knowing fully well that he has been helpful to other people. He did a reading for me that made it clear to him that I was going to become a winner after he had prepared the spell for me. He told me the exact ticket to pick and I was declared the winner of ONE MILLION DOLLARS at the "Double Your Money” instant lottery game. I don't know what you seek for but Dr Amber can help you.

BITCOIN RECOVERY IS REAL!!! ( MorrisGray830 At gmail Dot Com, is the man for the job )
This man is dedicated to his work and you can trust him more than yourself. I contacted him a year and a half Ago and he didn't succeed. when i got ripped of $491,000 worth of bitcoins by scammers, I tried several recovery programs with no success too. I kept on. And now after so much time Mr Morris Gray contacted me with a success, and the reward he took was small because obviously he is doing this because he wants to help idiots like me who fell for crypto scam, and love his job. Of course he could have taken all the coins and not tell me , I was not syncing this wallet for a year, but he didn't.
He is the MAN guys , He is! If you have been a victim of crypto scam before you can trust Morris Gray 10000000%. I thought there were no such good genuine guys anymore on earth, but Mr Morris Gray brought my trust to humanity again. GOD bless you sir...you can reach him via ( MORRIS GRAY 830 at Gmaill dot com ) or Whatsapp +1 (607)698-0239..

I am glad to tell you all about this wonderful hacker called MASON WEST, the words of my mouth can’t show how happy I am today. I have been battling with my credit report for some few months back. I discovered I had some negatives sure as credit loans of $14000, student loan of $3500, bankruptcy, taxline, hospitalbills, DUI and a criminal record which as lasted for 8 months. As at then my credit score was 406.i went online in search for a hacker, luckily for me I came across a review about [email protected] . I contacted them immediately and we settle at a price and I made some up front commitment, after that they start the job. Few days later I received a message from the credit bureaus that my credit profile as been wiped and they also increased my score to a high 799plus. They are legit and 100% trust worthy, contact them with the above details.

HAVE YOU BEEN SCAMMED OF YOUR COINS AND WANTS TO GET IT RECOVERED BACK???

I invested a total of$95,000.00USD worth of Bitcoin with an online company who does trading and was guaranteed a payout of 25% a week. They ended up shutting down their company website but their website was still running. So I could still see my dashboard at that time and instead of paying weekly they ended up compounding my money. It ended up compounding to$179, 000USD so I requested for a withdrawal which was declined before they shutdown their website, I complained to my colleague at work who directed me about this recovery expert, Mr. Morris Ray, that helped him, I contacted him immediately, what surprised me most, was that I recovered my money that same week. You can contact him on his email at MorrisGray830 @ Gmail . com and on WhatsApp: + 1 (607) 698-0239 and he will assist you on the steps to recover your invested funds.
Just trying to help those who where scammed just the way I was too.
