Bukele then declared in a tweet that there will be no capital gains taxes on Bitcoin gains and that all “crypto entrepreneurs” will be awarded a permanent residency.
The Central American backing has grown even more now that a Panamanian official has added his two cents. He proposes appropriate legislation to make Bitcoin legal in the country.
