And 2.1 million users for Chivo wallet is more than the total numbers of the customers of Commercial or non-commercial banks of El Salvador.
So through the yesterday tweet, Nayib Bukele didn’t only tried to show the success of Chivo wallet, but also he tried to show that with the use of Bitcoin & Bitcoin Digital wallet, people can easily reach their bank accounts by sitting at home.
Earlier this, most of the people & organization criticized Nayib Bukele for the decision to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender. And also no one thought about the rapid adoption rate of Bitcoin at such a high scale, besides trading purposes. But here El Salvador proved how we can change and achieve those high level financial services & infrastructure easily with blockchain technology based crypto.
