El Salvador's president, Nayib Bukele, has announced the country's government has purchased an additional 150 BTC coinciding with the crypto's drop to $45,000.
In total, El Salvador's Bitcoin fund has 700 Bitcoins. Last September 7, when the law legalizing the first crypto as a means of payment came into force in the country, the government bought 550 BTC.
Bukele has also recommended buying Bitcoins when the price of the asset falls and has called it "the president's advice."
