On September 7, a law was passed on Bitcoin in El Salvador, as an official means of payment.
And on this day, many people took to the streets to protest this law. Even before its adoption, many were outraged and demanded to be canceled, since the citizens of the country believe that cryptocurrency will help in money laundering and financing terrorist organizations.
The bloc of public resistance and uprising protests against the law almost every day.
Mario Gomez was recently arrested. He is known for being a cryptocurrency expert and vehemently opposing the passage of the law. The man often posted his thoughts on social networks.
Pensioners are also opposed to cryptocurrency, they do not want their pension to be paid in bitcoin. People are outraged that the government did not explain the pros and cons of BTC. At the same time, the presidential administration states that the use of bitcoin is optional and everyone can make their own choice.
Many experts believe that the adoption of the law is a good decision, although the country will have to face difficulties.
