The new law has a plan to help the country to issue a bid of about $1 billion worth of bitcoin bonds, the government is dubbing EBB1 and wants to create a Central American “debt market” a non-crypto development. The plans need a legal framework and regulations according to the minister because the bitcoin bond is first of its kind, hence, adequate regulations must be in place beforehand.
Critics on the other hand emphasize that the lack of a democratic process to discuss and approve the bonds plan and bitcoin city will be moot if the law can face a debate in the parliament. The financial regulators are powerless to approve crypto-related securities proposals, unlike their American counterparts.
Conclusion and Projection

A critic like Jorge Stolfi is not impressed and warns that a horde of scammers and fraudsters will be going to El Salvador.
The BTCUSD pair is still in a consolidation state on the daily chart, an opportunity to close below the support level will take the price lower, but if the Bulls can close above the resistance zone of 48589 the price of bitcoin will rise and it will attract more crypto brokers to open long positions in anticipation for the next bullish surge that will create a new ATH in the market.
