El Salvador buys 420 more Bitcoin

The government of El Salvador has bought 420 more bitcoin ($25.6 million), President Nayib Bukele tweeted on Wednesday.

Nayib Bukele said in a series of tweets, “It was a long wait, but worth it. We just bought the dip!”.

He added that “We’re already making a profit of the bitcoin we just bought.”

Bitcoin is currently trading at $60,965 and dipped down to around $58,179 on Wednesday.

Bitcoin officially became legal tender in El Salvador in September, three months after the Bitcoin Law passed the country’s legislature.

El Salvador’s treasury now holds an estimated 1,120 bitcoin, according to a Reuters report.

In September, Bukele said that the country is taking its first steps to harness massive natural power sources to mine bitcoin. He posted a short video of workers installing a shipping container full of cryptocurrency mining rigs at a geothermal power plant.
