The mass adoption of Bitcoin and digital assets has been set as the main goal of the crypto space.
There have been a lot of moves made in this direction, and they continue, taking the mainstream adoption of digital assets on the right path.
As you probably know by now, the crypto market was suddenly crashed the other day, just following the news that El Salvador made Bitcoin a legal tender.

Bitcoin Magazine also noted that “The world is about to change forever as today is the last day on planet Earth where #bitcoin won’t be legal tender somewhere.”
Bitcoin has made it to the mass media for a long time, and Forbes noted what’s been happening in El Salvador as well.
Fast-food giant McDonald’s has started accepting BTC as a form of payment in El Salvador after the country became the first to adopt the crypto as legal tender.
Forbes posted a relevant quote:
Just walked into a McDonald’s in San Salvador to see if I could pay for my breakfast with bitcoin, tbh fully expecting to be told no.
But low and behold, they printed a ticket with QR that took me to a webpage with Lightning invoice, and now I’m enjoying my desayuno traditional! pic.twitter.com/NYCkMNbv7U

El Salvador’s biggest bank accepts BTC
The Block Crypto online publication just revealed that clients of El Salvador’s largest bank, Bancoagrícola, will now be able to pay down their loans and credit card bills in bitcoin.
People can also now use BTC to purchase goods and services from merchants connected to the bank’s payment gateway.
