The first nation to accept Bitcoin as legal money is El Salvador. In 2022, there are also plans to issue a Bitcoin bond, and Mow will be in charge of that endeavor. If successful, El Salvador will be able to offer bonds backed by Bitcoin directly through the blockchain, bypassing Wall Street banks and other international organizations.

Official consultants on the bond’s design include Mow and Blockstream. The sidechain-based settlement network Liquid, which was also developed by Blockstream, will be used to issue the bond. According to Mow, “the overall feeling was one of extremely strong coherence and direction” regarding the project. Mow anticipates a busy year in 2022 thanks to the El Salvador Bitcoin Bond initiative and Blockstream’s recent elevation to the position of crypto unicorn.
