Paraguay gradually adopts bitcoin
The acceptance of payments in cryptocurrencies in Paraguay is growing little by little. In mid-June, CriptoNoticias reported on the decision of a night entertainment company to accept bitcoin and other crypto assets in 24 of its establishments starting in July.
In addition, since the adoption of bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador became known, Paraguay has been one of the countries in which there has been most talk of taking a similar course. In large part, this is due to the initiative of a legislator who promised to present a project in July, a fact also reported by this medium.
