Bitcoin to be announced as official legal tender in Honduras, one year after El Salvador adopted Bitcoin, sources say.
While the move would mark the second sovereign state to adopt Bitcoin, Honduran President Xiomara Castro is said to have commented, “we are still early.”
“We must not allow El Salvador to be the only country escaping dollar hegemony,” Castro is said to have said. “Honduras has the right to move toward the First World.”
Castro will make an announcement on Monday morning by “putting on the lasers,” one source said.
More to come as this breaking story unfolds.
