El Salvador veterinary clinic accepts Bitcoin as payment

El Salvador, the world’s first country to adopt bitcoin as legal tender, is discovering new methods to incorporate bitcoin into individuals’ minds and e-wallets. President Nayib Bukele announced on Twitter that a veterinary clinic in the capital had opened, with all services for $ 0.25 in bitcoin.

The name of the medical institution for animals received thanks to the national cryptocurrency wallet Chivo. However, it will be possible to pay for veterinary services from any cryptocurrency wallet.

Chivo Pets will be available 24 hours a day. Operating, rehabilitation, hospitalization, quarantine, and other medical facilities are available to four-legged clients and their owners. In a nutshell, a broad array of animal-related services.

Since the fall of last year, bitcoin has become legal tender in El Salvador. The new law has made it possible for prices in the country to be set in bitcoins, and taxes can also be paid in the cryptocurrency.

There is no capital gains tax levied on bitcoin exchange for fiat currency, and bitcoins can be exchanged for dollars at the current market exchange rate. To accept the country’s first cryptocurrency, all businesses in the country must comply with the regulations.

The government of the country regularly purchases bitcoins across the strait. Additionally, the country’s government is involved in mining. In early October, the first bitcoins were mined in El Salvador on a state-run mining farm that utilizes the volcano’s geothermal energy.

Bukele responds to all those condemned by his actions by stating that while the rest of the world watches El Salvador’s experiments, he, as a visionary president, is transforming the economy:

“The Bitcoin experiment is nothing more than a mass adoption process that will transform El Salvador’s economy. If it successful, then the game will be over for Fiat. El Salvador is the spark that will ignite a real revolution.”
