South American Countries Scrutinizing Declaring BTC a Form of Currency
Interestingly, this much development in the discussions regarding the future of BTC has come after the flagship cryptocurrency has been declared a legal tender in El Salvador.
Furthermore, several South American countries, including Brazil, are scrutinizing the decision of declaring Bitcoin as a form of currency.
Addressing this situation, Sagi Bakshi, the CEO of Coinmama, said:
“All eyes on El Salvador now – some mocking, some crossing fingers. I am sure that their use case will be a great example of innovation and fast penetration. Financial services will be built on top of a public ledger, and the naysayers will be surprised.”
On Bitcoin price prediction, the respondents acknowledged that despite a short-term price correction, the asset’s price would surge to $318,417 as of December 2025. As per the participants of the survey, the carbon footprint issue is a major concern that will impact the price of Bitcoin in the long term.
