Controversy: humour or authoritarianism?
For some, these comments are totally humorous, but others have criticized Bukele as reckless and autocratic for having an entire nation’s money in his phone (if true).
“Sería genial que este tipo intercambiara su propio dinero … pero no, ¿cambió el tesoro del país por WTF real? ¿Nadie ve el problema aquí? Si tiene este tipo de control, adivina qué es realmente ”commented a user ofTwitter unhappy.
For his part, the maximalist ofBitcoin, Anthony Pompliano, took it completely as a joke and asked President Bukele if he used a flip phone or a smartphone to make BTC transactions.
Other users, also jokingly, replied things like this:
“My phone is too bad to operate. Please send me a phone for the future of El Salvador”.
“And if you send it to my address, I’ll send you back double the amount just to celebrate that it’s Christmas soon!”.
“I need you to run to be our president.”
There were also those who gave him serious advice:
“With the money you spend on Bitcoin, you can pump smaller currencies, you can manipulate the market an area or arena, online or offline, in which commercial dealings are conducted. like hedge funds do. Imagine the profits El Salvador would make.”
