Bitcoin becomes legal tender, and the global macroeconomic pattern is quietly changing.

According to ZB Research Institute on June 11, the Congress of El Salvador voted to approve the proposal of bitcoin as legal tender submitted by the president, making El Salvador the first country in the world to recognize bitcoin as legal tender. Although the Salvadoran President explained to the International Monetary Fund on the policy of bitcoin becoming legal tender, the adoption of bitcoin will not change the macro economy of El Salvador. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) still believes that the adoption of bitcoin as legal tender in El Salvador will cause a series of macroeconomic, financial and legal problems.

According to the ZB Research Institute, the president of El Salvador has released relevant information to provide volcanic geothermal energy for bitcoin mining and reduce the energy consumption of bitcoin. In addition to El Salvador, Lord fusitua, a member of the upper house of Tonga, an island country in the southwest Pacific, said he and Jackmallers wanted to use the country’s $750 million reserves to buy bitcoin, accounting for 37% of its GPD. It is likely to be the second country to use bitcoin as legal tender.

ZB Research Institute believes that for a long time, the global dollar system has affected the currency value of most small economies and economically underdeveloped regions by the dollar, and the appreciation and depreciation of the dollar has almost become the lifeblood of small economies. El Salvador is located in Central America, with a population of 6.345 million. Its own currency is not enough to support its international trade, and the use of the US dollar must bear the devaluation caused by the release of US dollars. Based on the above reasons, El Salvador was forced to carry out a legal currency transformation of Bitcoin.

On a global scale, more small economies are facing the same dilemma as El Salvador. When more and more small economies are not satisfied with the reality of the dollar and cannot carry out economic reforms based on their own legal currency, cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin have become the best choice.

When small economies begin to accept cryptocurrency as legal currency due to various demands, international trade with small economies will inevitably use cryptocurrency, which further promotes the formation of the global cryptocurrency application market, and forms a more authoritative use scenario at the level of the central bank’s foreign exchange reserves. It not only has an impact on the global macro-economy, but also has a significant impact on the long-term development of the currency market. The global macroeconomic pattern may change quietly with the legalization process of bitcoin by Salva team.
