El Salvador’s bitcoin legal-tender law goes into effect today. NLW looks at the recent controversy surrounding the law, including:

  • Institutional controversy why the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank don’t like the law 
  • Bitcoiner skepticism why some aren’t convinced the law should force merchants to accept BTC
  • Authoritarian blues why some are concerned with the Bukele government itself
