El Salvador’s Minister of Labor and Social Welfare has stated that the nation isn’t yet prepared to embrace Bitcoin (BTC) for salary obligations.
At a Wednesday discussion, Rolando Castro denied local reports that promised that his ministry had started assessing the chance of Bitcoin-based wages together with officials in the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Economy on Monday.
Castro stressed he was only answering a query, saying that it was”too early to speak about salary.” The officer added that he’s currently focused on discovering better and more jobs such as El Salvadoreans. “Monetary problems fall under the financial cabinet, and I am not a part of this,” he mentioned.
The minister’s comments came a week later El Salvador handed President Nayib Bukele’s invoice producing Bitcoin legal tender in the nation. Crypto influencers have flocked into the tiny Central American country to meet up with Bukele.

As previously mentioned, El Salvador’s 2001 Legislation of Monetary Integration, that provided a valid foundation for substituting the Salvadorean colón together with the United States dollar, also specifies that wages and charges may only be compensated at colónes or bucks. It is still unclear if the acceptance of Bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador would enlarge upon present law or substitute it. President Nayib Bukele’s draft of law says that”tax donations could be compensated Bitcoin” and also”for accounting purposes, the USD is going to be applied as the benchmark currency.”
