The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) has declared that international tourism is registering a strong recovery after the two-year impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, El Salvador is among the countries with the highest rate of restoration, given that the number of visitors has increased by over 82% this year, and bitcoin (quote BTC) is one of the main attractions of the Central American country.
Il Bitcoin attracti moltissimi turisti
In the first half of 2022, more than a million people have visited El Salvador, according to government data published by a local newspaper. Moreover, according to the Minister of Tourism, Morena Valdez, the country expects to receive almost 60,000 foreign visitors in August, which could generate approximately 60 million dollars in tourist revenue.
The interest in El Salvador is such that the country’s hotel capacity, currently at about 7,000 rooms, has been filled, so at least 13,000 more beds are needed to satisfy the demand, added Valdez.
The ambassador of El Salvador in Washington, Milena Mayorga, attributes the increase in tourism to the fact that bitcoin has a legal course in the country.
I dati dimostrano che il bitcoin sta efficaciously attracting tourists in El Salvador, dato che le visite received in the first half of this year hanno almost surpassed that of 2019 (1,200,000), before che la criptovaluta fosse adopted dalla Centralamericana nation.
I visitors don’t seem to worry about the low price of bitcoin, nor the fact that El Salvador has personally invested 47% of national reserves in BTC, as a sector of the population has declared.
Bitcoin, the main attraction of the earth of volcanoes
Since El Salvador has adopted bitcoin as a legal currency, thousands of bitcoiners have taken the trip and have not talked about their social network.
The country is also the central stage of many events related to the bitcoin ecosystem, attracting important figures from the sector and, with this, a greater number of bitcoiners from all over the world.
In fact, il prossimo novembre El Salvador will host Adopting Bitcoin, one of the most important events in the crypto currency world. Another opportunity for the community to meet in the countryside.
On the other hand, many foreigners who arrived in El Salvador did not have a return ticket for their place of origin. Questo perché sono sbarcati dal tratti dal bitcoin e hanno deciso di optare per la cittadinanza che il Paese concede a chi vi invest traverso il pioneere delle criptovalute.
