After the legalization of Bitcoin in September, the government of El Salvador acquired 550 BTC through a fund created for the acquisition of the currency. The country then acquired another 150 BTC coinciding with the currency's fall to $45,000.
In October, the country's authorities increased their Bitcoin holdings with another 420 BTC, again taking advantage of the correction in the price of the asset. In November, the state fund acquired 100 BTC. The government of El Salvador also recently acquired 21 BTC to celebrate "the last 21 days of the 21st year of the 21st century."
El Salvador has also started mining cryptos using geothermal volcanic energy. However, some experts have questioned the profitability of mining with volcanic energy.
