Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele posted a bitcoin forecast for the coming year on Twitter. The Salvadoran leader estimates that the first cryptocurrency will soon reach the $ 100,000 mark.
On January 2, in the midst of the 2022 New Year’s celebration, Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele posted his bitcoin forecast for the coming year on Twitter and made some very bold statements.
Bukele’s six predictions have aroused great interest among his subscribers. The most discussed point was that “Two more countries will accept bitcoin as legal tender”. Recall that El Salvador became the first country to adopt BTC as a legal means of payment on September 7, 2021. This event became a sensation that caught the attention of many other world leaders. This is a very interesting prediction, especially in the context of the fact that the Ambassador of El Salvador to the United States, Milena Mayorga, clarified that in case of success in their country, other countries “Would follow their example” in the adoption of bitcoin.
Bitcoin “Will be one of the main questions in this year’s US Senate elections”, he announced. Indeed, many politicians, including the 2020 Democratic nominee Andrew Young, as well as Republican Senators Cynthia Lammis and Warren Davidson, have shown their support for this asset class. At the same time, some of the American politicians have expressed their concern about this matter. For example, Senator Elizabeth Warren thinks it only pays off for the rich.
Bitcoin City, reissued Bitcoin bonds, a huge surprise
Another point of the president’s statement: the construction of Bitcoin City will begin. The announcement of the creation of a bitcoin fan’s paradise came at the end of Bitcoin Week in El Salvador. It is expected that the city will have 0% income tax, capital gains tax, property tax, payroll tax and municipal tax, as well as 0% of emissions from CO2.
In addition, Bukele expects Bitcoin bonds to be issued on the network Blockstream’s Liquid Network “Be reissued”.
President Bukele is betting that bitcoin will finally hit the long-awaited $ 100,000 target.
Another statement: the president promises a “Huge surprise” at the time of the conference Bitcoin 2022 in Miami, Florida in April of this year. One can only guess what kind of announcement he has prepared for this year’s conference which he will attend in person.
Bukele seems confident in his predictions, but we’ll have to wait and see if and to what extent they come true this year. Additionally, it will be very interesting to see how the regulation of bitcoin in America develops as more and more politicians become enlightened on this issue.
