El Salvador’s Crypto position becomes really shaky as the crypto market crash.

The country holds a total of 2,301 BTC which was valued at $101 million. The country’s holding is now just worth $54 million.

Finance Minister, Alejandro Zelaya, reassured that the most recent market crash will not hurt the country’s fiscal health.

El Salvador has an unrealized loss of $40 million in its BTC investments, Zelaya noted that this amount represents less than 0.5% of the country’s national general budget.
