El Salvador’s Finance Minister Reassures The Country’s Bitcoin Holdings Pose Minimal Fiscal Risks.
Last week, El Salvador’s finance Minister, Alejandro Zelaya, cleared the air on the country’s Bitcoin holdings, explaining that the BTC is yet to yield any losses since it has not been sold. He said:
There is a lot of fuss lately about our bitcoin strategy. I have said it repeatedly: a supposed loss of 40 million dollars has not occurred because we have not sold the coins…
When they say that the fiscal risk in El Salvador due to bitcoin is very high, the only thing it does is make me laugh and I think that any serious economist should do the same, because it really is an extremely superficial analysis and They speak only from ignorance.
