Most of the cryptocurrencies (virtual currencies) such as Bitcoin are rising on the news that El Salvador is pushing for a Bitcoin fiat currency.
On the 7th at 6:10 am (Korean time), on CoinMarketCap, a global coin market relay site, Bitcoin recorded $35,892, up 0.43% from 24 hours ago.
Bitcoin plummeted to as low as $34,000 at one point on the news that China had blocked the Weibo account of a Bitcoin influencer the day before, but rebounded on news that El Salvador would adopt Bitcoin as a fiat currency.
El Salvador’s President Nayve Bukele attended the “Bitcoin 2021 Conference” in Miami on the previous day, and announced that he would submit a bill to the legislature next week to convert bitcoin into a legal currency.
Experts agree that the passage of the bill is certain as the ruling party controls a majority of the parliament.
Not only Bitcoin, but also Ethereum, the second largest by market cap, recorded $2702, up 3.03% from 24 hours ago on CoinMarketCap at the same time.
At the same time, on Upbit, a Korean trading site, Bitcoin is trading at 41,987,000 won, up 0.10% from 24 hours ago, and Ethereum is also trading at 3,162,000 won, up 1.90%.
