The mass adoption of Bitcoin and crypto has been one of the main goals of the industry, and El Salvador just boosted the whole move.
The other day, we were revealing that it was a big day for El Salvador, and the whole world has its eyes set on this nation. Bitcoin is the one to “blame” for this.

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.
Bitcoin adoption explodes
They posted a piece about the BTC adoption in the country and said that the 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 cryptocurrency as legal tender.
The important online publication also posted a relevant quote:
“Just walked into a McDonald’s in San Salvador to see if I could pay for my breakfast with bitcoin … fully expecting to be told no,” cryptocurrency journalist Aaron van Wirdum wrote in a tweet Tuesday morning. “But low and behold.”
