- President Nayib Bukele made the announcement on Tuesday - also announcing that the government had purchased a total of 550 bitcoins - currently worth about $25 million.
- It's a historic moment for the popular cryptocurrency - but some analysts believe it's a risky move for El Salvador's economy.
- Will we see other countries make this move? What happens if El Salvador's experiment doesn't work out?
