American company Athena plans to invest in the new digital economy of El Salvador 1,500 bitcoins ATMs with a total value of $ 1 million.
Athena ATMs installed in many countries make it easy to buy or sell bitcoins for cash.
The company plans to gradually install at least1,500 ATMs and open an office in El Salvador, the first country to declare bitcoin legal tender. The implementation of the plan will begin with the installation of a dozen cryptomats.
Президент Сальвадора также анонсировал state airdrop - every adult citizen of the country will receive $ 30 in bitcoin. It is estimated that between 4 and 6 million people will receive the airdrop.
Contrary to the president's optimism, the World Bank does not support El Salvador's cryptocurrency initiative, and the IMF is threatening with sanctions and opposition to the integration of cryptocurrency into the country's financial system.
