El Salvador buys 21 Bitcoins

El Salvador bought another 21 Bitcoins to mark the 21st day of the last month of the 21st year of the 21st century, President Nayib Bukele said in a series of tweets on Tuesday night.

Bukele said he bought at 21:21:21, noting that El Salvador’s land area is 21,000 square kilometers. The president shared a screenshot of the transactions, totaling just over $1 million, saying “there you go.” Before the purchase, El Salvador owned 1,120 Bitcoins in its treasury, which now brings its total to 1,141 Bitcoins.

Bitcoin is trading up at $48,528 as of press time.
