Bitcoin was trading at $ 52,500, up 1.5 percent from yesterday as El Salvador’s “bitcoin law” goes into effect tonight (Australian time) and the Latin American country becomes the first country to adopt BTC as legal tender.
President Nayib Bukele announced on Twitter that El Salvador had bought 400 bitcoins (worth around $ 21 million) in two 200 BTC purchases. It was not clear if the land was done with the purchase.
The country plans to provide $ 30 in free BTC to all of its citizens to help boost its Bitcoin economy.
Microstrategy CEO Michael Saylor, whose company owns 108,992 BTC (valued at about $ 5.7 billion), tweeted that “every cyber hornet I know plans to do BTC tomorrow in solidarity with the folks at #ElSalvador and to buy their leader @nayibbukele ”.

Monochrome Asset Management founder and CEO Jeff Yew told Stockhead, “What we are seeing is a battle between a particular genre of crypto assets trying to figure out who will emerge as the dominant application layer.”
“Digital raw materials like Bitcoin have a different use case, a different ideology and a different audience than application layers like Ethereum, Solana or the Lighting Network. So I wouldn’t categorize them straight away. “
There is evidence of a decreasing price correlation between these assets and basic monetary layers like Bitcoin as the market gains a clearer understanding of these different categories of products in this space, “but it’s too early to say,” Yew said.
eCash, the cryptocurrency renamed from Bitcoin Cash ABC, was the worst performer in the top 100 with a decline of 11.3 percent, according to Coingecko.
