The US Not Supporting El Salvador Because Of Power Preservation?
El Salvador’s US ambassador Milena Mayorga recently said that America and international organizations are not happy with the country’s decision to adopt Bitcoin as legal tender. However, Mayorga added that El Salvador is not afraid to burn bridges with former allies and is marching on with its adoption of Bitcoin. The ambassador spoke about recent developments that have transpired since the country crossed the Rubicon.
Per a CoinDesk report, Mayorga said:
“The concern in Washington DC is about losing the power of the dollar and we can understand that. But Salvador has to move on and be on a different level.”
The ambassador noted that Bitcoin offers the country an alternative funding option away from the traditional methods provided by aid organizations like the IMF. She added:
“They are afraid and concerned because if we succeed, a lot of countries are looking to follow our lead.”
She noted that in the last 30 years, the country has suffered from corrupt leadership and a blatant lack of transparency. She also believes that Bitcoin will help President Bukele’s administration give Salvadorans myriad opportunities and a stable economy.
Before the Bitcoin Law, the IMF had voiced its concerns against the country’s adoption on grounds that the asset’s volatility could be harmful to the economy. In a recent concluding statement, the Fund noted that there were concerns with the levels of investor protection in the Chivo wallet but commented that the economy has rebounded after the pandemic.
