According to Julio Sevilla, a professor at the University of Georgia, subsequent instability in Bitcoin and the larger crypto market increases public sentiment. This is against the dominant cryptocurrency that contributes to the perception that the country’s Bitcoin trial flops.
Current volatility causes Bitcoin to fall underneath the preceding cycle top for the first time in its history. As result, it sparks even more gloomy sentiment. Many believe that, in tandem with a deteriorating macroeconomic climate, particularly rising inflation and the potential of more rate hikes, things will become worse.
After every splitting and succeeding Bull Run, Bitcoin always remains above the maximum price of the preceding cycle. The demise of this tendency ushers in a completely new era of price discovery for the primary cryptocurrency. A Sunday recovery bounces back Bitcoin to the psychologically critical $20,000 milestone, but however long this maintains is debatable.
El Salvador’s Vulnerability to Bitcoin will not Wreck the Government
El Salvador sets a record in September 2021 when it became the first country to legalize Bitcoin. President Bukele pushes the notion by stating that it would usher in a new age of economic potential for the Central American nation. He claims that it would bring the country financial equality, investments, tourism, creativity, and economic prosperity.
Fast forward to now, and BTC plummets more than 60% from when they approved the Bitcoin Law. Critics claim that President Bukele and the parliamentarians who support the bill act recklessly with public funds. In response, Sevilla states that they utilize $150 million in public funds to support the trial. With this constituting only 4% of the country’s assets, the government would not go insolvent if Bitcoin fell to zero.
Nevertheless, Sevilla stresses that they should not take for granted the total investment. It is because the country’s finances were shaky to start with. This notes that it is not an amount that they can accept as normal. Nevertheless, it is not a sum that will destroy the economy. Right today, the GDP is $25 billion.
President Bukele Maintains His Popularity
Sevilla mentions the recent surveys on the appeal of BTC among Salvadorans. However, two-thirds of the community acquires the Chivo Wallet which was mostly for accessibility to the free $30 reward. Now that the dust settles, just 20% of all those who did register are still using the program.
According to Sevilla, the concept of bitcoin does not appear to be popular among the majority of El Salvadorans. Despite this, President Bukele is still a popular figure among voters. The issue, according to Sevilla, is the absence of pushback, which creates an echo chamber for these crazy projects.
In terms of the ramifications of Bitcoin adoption, the professor believes that it was appropriate to bring up the conflict between El Salvador as well as the IMF. Sevilla claims that agitating the IMF was a mistake because the country is highly obliged to them.
