El Salvador president Nayid Bukele says his country could become the first to make bitcoin a legal tender. Bukele plans to propose a bill that he says could transform the Central American country. The Washington Post reports that the president hopes the move will lead to the financial inclusion of thousands of people who are outside the legal economy. Seventy percent of the population does not have a bank account and works in the informal economy. Experts say the murky legal status of bitcoin has raised questions about whether it could ever replace normal currency in day-to-day transactions.
