El Salvador moves $400 million in Bitcoin into cold storage

According to the latest reports, El Salvador has just moved $400 million worth of BTC into a cold wallet this week.

Here’s the post that the President of this nation decided to share on X:

As Coindesk noted, a Bitcoin treasury of such a size places El Salvador’s holdings far higher than previously believed.

As of Thursday, public trackers indicate that the country’s Bitcoin reserve is currently less than 3,000 BTC, which amounts to approximately $205 million.

Earlier this week, Buckle hinted at the fact that the country has not only purchased BTC, but has also obtained it through the sale of passports, currency conversions for businesses, mining, and government services.

It is also worth noting the fact that the President said that his nation will be buying Bitcoin until it becomes unaffordable with fiat currencies.

Just to refresh your memory, El Salvador became the first country to buy BTC as a treasury asset in September 2021, when a single coin cost around $52,000.

“On Thursday BTC prices were north of $72,000, though in the past 24 hours the asset has traded above $73,000 and as low as $68,000,” Yahoo News notes.

At the moment of writing this article, BTC is trading in the red, and the king coin is priced at $68,970.
