Nayib Bukele, the El Salvador president, has advised crypto miners to use the country’s volcanic thermal power to mine BTC. The head of state told cryptocurrency organizations to install offices in the nation to acquire permanent habitation authorizations and operate with less paperwork.

The move by El Salvador to legalize Bitcoins comes as other nations such as China attack the world’s best crypto asset with stiffer rules. China banned crypto exchanges such as Binance from its social media sites and search engines. The only concern with the regulators is electricity consumption. Keep in mind that El Salvador has accepted BTC since it would utilize green energy in mining activities.

Recently, Bitcoin has gained massive acceptance in Latin American nations. Also, government officials are now interested in cryptocurrencies.
