While Vice President Buckley announced Tuesday that he has bought 21 BTC, the El Salvador government continues to celebrate key days with the purchase of bitcoin (BTC).
Buckley said El Salvador ‘s latest BTC investment is to celebrate the “21st century” and commemorate the lack of bitcoin, whose supply is limited to 21 million BTC.
The President also said that, according to Bukele, the total size of El Salvador is about 21,411 square kilometers, which is no coincidence, because El Salvador was the first country to accept Bitcoin as a legitimate customer.
According to CoinGecko, BTC was trading at just over $ 49,000 at the time of purchase.
Buying Bitcoin comes as a way for El Salvador to celebrate various venues and play on important El Salvador dates or numbers, after the government bought the first 200 BTC in early September.
On November 26, El Salvador celebrated Black Friday and bought 100 BTC for about $ 54,000 per BTC, raising a total of 1,220 BTC.

Earlier in October, the El Salvador government raised $ 420 million from Sam Bankman-Fried’s FTX cryptocurrency exchange and bought 420-BTC on a large scale. Both of them seem to use “420” to refer to cannabis culture for cannabis when predicted by certain professionals.
