NLW looks at the controversy and potential surrounding the implementation of El Salvador’s new bitcoin law.

This episode is sponsored by NYDIG.

El Salvador’s bitcoin legal-tender law goes into effect today. NLW looks at the recent controversy surrounding the law, including:

  • Institutional controversy – why the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank don’t like the law
  • Bitcoiner skepticism – why some aren’t convinced the law should force merchants to accept BTC
  • Authoritarian blues – why some are concerned with the Bukele government itself
