El Salvador has been considered a tourist hotspot but the industry suffered following the pandemic and a measure of social instability. Bitcoin is changing the narrative for the Tom Thumb of the Americas.
El Salvador’s adoption of Bitcoin is already paying dividends for the small country and the latest win is the increase in tourists flocking to the nation. Bitcoin maximalists are coming into San Salvador, the capital city to catch a glimpse of the future of a world where Bitcoin is the reserve currency.
Bitcoin tourists are pouring in from all over the world to see firsthand the impact of the decision to adopt the cryptocurrency. Several traveling bloggers are already documenting their experiences using Bitcoin as a means of exchange in the country on their blogs. A direct consequence of the influx is the stimulation it brings to the general economy of El Salvador.
