According to Vale do Pinhão, one of the most striking points in El Salvador’s development itinerary is the recent announcement of Bitcoin City (“Bitcoin City”). This city that will still be created by the small country will be financed with Bitcoin, using the energy generated by a volcano to supply the consumption of the population that will live there.
