San Salvador, El Salvador:

The Congress of El Salvador has approved a law that will classify Bitcoin as legal tender in the Latin American country, its president said, making it the world’s first nation to adopt a cryptocurrency.

“The #BitcoinLaw has just been approved by a qualified majority” in the legislative assembly, President Nayib Bukele — who proposed the law — tweeted after the vote late Tuesday.
