El Salvador Buys 21 Bitcoin to Celebrate Dec. 21, 2021

The Index Today

The government of El Salvador continued celebrating the significant days by buying more Bitcoin (BTC), with President Nayib Bukele announcing a new purchase of 21 BTC last Tuesday.

At the time of writing, 21 Bitcoin worth around $1,036,000, El Salvador’s latest BTC investment is to celebrate the “last 21st day of the year 21 of the 21st century” and commemorate the scarcity of Bitcoin as its supply is limited by 21 million BTC, Bukele said in his tweet.

The president also noticed and tweeted about it that El Salvador’s entire size is reportedly around 21,041 square kilometers, which, according to Bukele, is not a coincidence as El Salvador is the first country in the world to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender.
