El Salvador Proud To Have Adopted Bitcoin

The Bitcoin Week is taking place in El Salvador this week, hosting a range of events in the country’s capital. The week’s most prominent event is LABITCONF, the Latin American Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference, which will bring together some of the brightest brains in the Bitcoin community on Thursday, November 18, and Friday, November 19.

Another major event, Adopting Bitcoin, began yesterday and will extend until Thursday. The conference will focus on Bitcoin’s scaling network, Lightning, and feature notable developers and entrepreneurs building the future of money.

“Our government is committed to innovating. We are very proud to have adopted bitcoin,” said the head of El Salvador’s Minister of Economy, María Luisa Hayem, at the Adopting Bitcoin conference.

Hayem and the Minister of Tourism Morena Valdez participated in the conference, providing insights on the government’s view and its people’s experience since the adoption of bitcoin as a legal tender in September.
