Bitcoin (BTC) Investment Profitable Says Nayib Bukele of El Salvador

The president of El Salvador took to the X platform early Monday morning to note his country’s bitcoin (BTC) investment was now profitable by more than $3 million following the crypto’s rally to the $42,000 area over the weekend.
“We have no intention of selling; that has never been our objective,” he added. “We are fully aware that the price will continue to fluctuate in the future, this doesn’t affect our long-term strategy.”

Based on public statements from Bukele, CoinDesk three weeks ago calculated that the country at that time owned roughly 2,744 bitcoins at an average price a bit lower than $42,000 and was sitting on a loss of about $16 million.
