That will happen when USA and Latin America airports drop the Cov-idiot test requirements, scheduled to be when so-called "Herd Immunity" has been achieved. We’re on it and will keep you posted…

 #1- What you need to know about El Salvador's Bitcoin adoption and the how and why it has voted to make Bitcoin legal tender- A DETAILED REPORT:

People who have never visited El Salvador perhaps don’t realize the US dollar has been El Salvador’s fiat funny money currency for the past 20 years. That change in 2001 was done of course because politicians did what they always do…they ran the printing presses until their local currency was destroyed through massive inflation (the old funny money was called the “Colon”). Unfortunately it’s the same old story with ALL government unbacked fiat currencies… DYK that every single paper currency in history (virtually hundreds of them) eventually failed and went to ZERO? But for now the US dollar is the cleanest rag in the sewer, though on a slow and steady march toward ZERO. Only some people understand that the US dollar has lost 97% of its purchasing power in the last 100 years since the Federal Reserve was instituted in 1913 (funny how the federal income tax was instituted in the same year). The USD is continuously falling but that’s not the official reason El Salvador has embraced Bitcoin. That's why today we discuss the origins, reasons and far reaching ramifications of Salvador’s Bitcoin adoption and how the Fed, IMF, World Bank and other crony banksters are busily closing ranks, trying to thwart the spread of the Bitcoin standard to other sovereign countries.
