El Salvador prepares 20 bills to provide legal framework for Bitcoin bonds

The raft of bills will help El Salvador’s government establish the legal and financial framework for the $1 billion Bitcoin bond issue, known as Volcano Bonds

El Salvador’s government, led by President Nayib Bukele, has moved ahead with plans to issue Bitcoin bonds by preparing 20 bills designed to provide a legal framework for them.

Head of the Treasury Alejandra Zelaya told El Salvadoran media El Mundo on Jan. 4 that the bills will cover regulations about issuing securities as cryptocurrency to ensure the viability of the Bitcoin bonds that were proposed in Nov. 2021. He said:

“[This is] to provide a legal structure and legal certainty to everyone who buys the Bitcoin bond.”

However he did not propose a timeframe for the legislation to be submitted to lawmakers.

The $1 billion sought by the bond issuance would be used to fund the Bitcoin City initiative which President Bukele has promised will provide “digital and technological education, geothermal energy for the entire city, and efficient and sustainable public transport.”

One of the features of the Bitcoin City is a Bitcoin (BTC) mining operation that harnesses the geothermal power generated by a volcano to power the mining rigs — leading to the bonds being dubbed “Volcano Bonds.” The mining operation mined its first 0.00599179 Bitcoin on Oct. 1 2021.

Funds from the bond issue could also be used to pay down an $800 million Eurobond issue which will mature in Jan. 2023. Zelaya told El Mundo that the country would need to find financiers to help fill their obligation to pay off the Eurobonds which could come from Bitcoin bonds or from “institutional offers from various investment banks,” rather than another Eurobond issue.

“We can simply make payments without creating another Eurobond in the traditional market, and we can find a bond that is denominated in dollars and receives payment in Bitcoin.”

A Eurobond is a debt tool for countries to raise funds in a denomination other than its own currency.

Zelaya also indicated that there is significant interest in the Bitcoin bond from investors as it offers exposure to BTC and a 10-year maturity of 6.5% interest.

The issuance of Bitcoin bonds would not, however, preclude the Central American nation from participating in traditional finance. Zelaya said “We are not going to abandon the traditional market.”

Notable partners with El Salvador in the creation of the Volcano Bonds include blockchain developer Blockstream and iFinex, which is closely related to stablecoin Tether (USDT). The bonds are expected to be issued on Blockstream’s Liquid Network and processed by iFinex.

President Bukele tweeted his 2022 predictions on Jan. 2 that “Bitcoin City will commence construction,” and “Volcano bonds will be oversubscribed.”

  • Decentralization: Central cloud storage is the central hub of data, files and databases managed by computers that are connected to networks.
  • Privacy: Cloud storage that is centralized exposes data to data leaks and privacy security breaches. Management can manage or monitor, censor, or even provide information to third parties, and stored data may be deleted or altered.
  • Security: Centralized storage servers cluster in one or more locations to cut costs. In the event of an outage in power or any other issues, many of the related services are often ineffective or risk losing data for all time.
  • Speed: Speeds of transfer for files are crucial for cloud storage, particularly when dealing with massive files. While there are some limitations to cloud storage that is centralized however, it has significantly quicker speeds than open cloud services.
  • Stability: Cloud storage platforms try their best to ensure reliable performance. However, most cloud storage providers’ accomplishments are often hampered by sharing physical resources, including memory, network CPUs, disks, CPUs with various users and needs, and the uptime of 100% cannot be guaranteed.

However, there are legitimate reasons you shouldn’t reveal your identity to traders who are aware of your privacy.


SIN has gained 1.45 percent in the last months, despite the fact that its market capitalization is still considered small, implying that the price of SIN can be very volatile when compared to those with larger market capitalizations during large market moves. However, with consistent growth over the last three months, SIN has the potential to grow even more and produce some very nice gains. Again, traders should exercise extreme caution at all times.

Please keep in mind that this analysis is solely based on SIN’s historical price movements and is not intended to be financial advice. Traders should always conduct their own research and exercise extreme caution when investing in cryptocurrencies.
