VOLCANO BONDS OF EL SALVADOR

On September 07, 2021, El Salvador formalized BTC as its national currency. Since then, President Nayib Bukele has not stopped encouraging and announcing new and promising projects in the world of crypto-currencies.
One of these projects is the use of BTC to issue government bonds.

Indeed, in November 2021, the president announced the upcoming creation of a futuristic city, insisting that the financing of this structure should be done through the issuance of bonds: Volcano bonds.
According to local sources, El Salvador is almost ready to issue bonds. The Minister of Finance said that the preparation phase of the issue should be completed by March 20, 2022. When this phase is completed, the country will be fully ready to issue its bonds, which will be worth $1 billion.

It is important to point out that the big difference of these bonds is that they will be able to be purchased in BTC or other cryptocurrencies, democratizing access to all participants of the crypto ecosystem.
The bonds will also be listed on the stock exchange and accessible to anyone willing to invest a minimum of $100.

After making history as the first country in the world to nationalize BTC, El Salvador is taking another step forward by becoming the first country to issue debt via crypto-currency. Not missing thus to taunt the IMF which had tried to force the reversal of the president towards conventional currencies, but had only reinforced his desire for sovereignty for his country.
