El Salvador intends to issue bitcoin bonds in order to build the world’s first cryptocurrency city in the near future.
It is assumed that the city will be named Bitcoin City. This statement was made by the President of El Salvador Naib Bukele, reports Reuters.
The city is planned to be built in the eastern region of La Union.
“This is a completely eco-friendly city that works and receives energy from a volcano,” Bukele said.
It is assumed that it will receive geothermal energy from the volcano, and its residents will be exempt from all taxes except value added tax (VAT).
According to Bukele, El Salvador was planning to issue the first Bitcoin bonds in 2022.
Samson Moe, director of strategy for blockchain technology provider Blockstream, noted that the first 10-year volcanic bond issue will be worth $ 1 billion.
