Real-time information on El Salvador’s Bitcoin reserves can be found on its official website, the Bitcoin Treasury. As of 8:20 a.m. UTC, the Central American country officially possesses 5,748 BTC, which is currently valued at about $360 million. As of this writing, Bitcoin is trading above $62,700.

According to the website, El Salvador has added 31 BTC worth $1.94 million over the last 30 days, and has purchased seven BTC worth more than $438,000 during the last week.

The acquisitions support El Salvador’s objective of bringing one Bitcoin into its treasury every day.

In September 2021, El Salvador became the first nation to accept Bitcoin as legal tender. The government wants to encourage more efficient remittance payments, foster financial innovation, and advance financial inclusion.

Following the collapse of the FTX exchange, which caused Bitcoin to drop from its previous all-time high of $69,000 in November 2021, President Nayib Bukele’s decision came under heavy criticism. After Bitcoin dropped as low as $16,000 during the bear market, El Salvador’s holdings of the cryptocurrency saw a sharp decline.

El Salvador Holds $57 Million in Unrealized Bitcoin Profits

Since 2021, El Salvador has been investing in Bitcoin dollar-cost averaging, with an average purchase price of $43,097 per BTC. According to the Nayib Bukele Portfolio Tracker website, El Salvador has an unrealized profit of over $57.4 million on its Bitcoin holdings, with BTC trading above $62,000.

The country of El Salvador may find a major lifeline from its Bitcoin holdings, according to well-known venture capitalist Tim Draper. If the price of Bitcoin hits $100,000, Draper believes the nation could soon achieve financial independence and be able to pay off its loans from the International Monetary Fund.

Several well-known cryptocurrency analysts have predicted that during the 2024–2025 bull run, Bitcoin will hit $100,000. According to a research report by Bitfinex analysts, Bitcoin may reach a cycle top of above $150,000 after the 2024 halving.

“Using a straightforward regression model, we predict a 160% post-halving price surge in the next 14 months, taking the price to between $150,000 – $169,000.”

The institutional inflows from the US spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds, which reversed three weeks of net outflows, will be the primary driver of Bitcoin’s price movement. Dune Analytics reports that during the last week, net inflows into U.S. Bitcoin ETFs totaled $413 million.CRYPTOCASTER® - DECENTRALIZED FREEDOM!


We hope you appreciated this article. Before you move on, I was hoping you would consider taking the step of supporting CryptoCaster’s journalism. 

From  Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.

And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.

When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble. 

Around the world, readers can access the CryptoCaster’s paywall-free journalism because of our unique reader-supported model. That’s because of people like you. Our readers keep us independent, beholden to no outside influence and accessible to everyone – whether they can afford to pay for news and information, or not.

We thankyou for the on-going support our readers have bestowed monetarily. If you have not considered supporting CryptoCaster, if you can, please consider supporting us just once from $1 or more of Bitcoin (satoshi) or Eth, and better yet, support us every month with a little more.
