1.6 Million Salvadorans Now Using Bitcoin Chivo Wallet

Today, the president of El Salvador, Nayib Bukele tweeted out an update on the adoption progress of the nation’s recently launched Bitcoin app, Chivo Wallet. As of now, over 1.6 million Salvadorans have been onboarded to the app and now have access to BTC.

The adoption of Bitcoin in El Salvador is ramping up quickly as just this past Friday, September 17, 2021, the President reported 1.1 million Salvadorans being onboarded to the app. These numbers are quite impressive considering Bitcoin only became legal tender in the country on September 7, 2021.
