In a tweet on Thursday night local time, Bukley shared screenshots of a series of incremental bitcoin purchases on June 30, writing: "El Salvador bought 80 bitcoins today for $19000 each!" Bitcoin is the future! "
"Thank you for selling it so cheaply," he said. "
This is the 11th time that El Salvador has bought bitcoin since it was adopted as legal tender last September. The country currently holds 2381 bitcoins at an average cost of $43000 each, with a total cost of $102.38 million
At current bitcoin prices of $19470, these bitcoins are worth about $46.35 million, meaning El Salvador's bitcoin investment has lost about $56 million.
