Late on Wednesday, Bukele took to Twitter appealing to his users to stop the spread of Reuters FUD. I’m a fan of @BitcoinMagazine, please don’t spread @Reuters FUD. The #Bitcoin Volcano Bonds 🌋 will be issued with @bitfinex. The short delay in the issuance is only because we are prioritizing internal pension reform and we have to send that to congress before. https://t.co/chUGgdDBDc — Nayib Bukele (@nayibbukele) March 23, 2022 The tweet was in response to Bitcoin Magazine’s allegation towards Binance CEO Changpeng “CZ” Zhao jetting into the country. The report claimed that Binance is assisting El Salvador in assisting the country’s Bitcoin bond issuance after the delay in the sale.  Earlier this week, Finance Minister of El Salvador, Alejandro Zelaya stated that due to unfavorable conditions of the market, the $1 Bitcoin bond offering was postponed.  President Bukele Hits Out At Bitcoin Magazine Nayib Bukele shared another tweet confirming his upcoming meeting with the Binance CEO. Bukele says that his discussion with CZ will not be related to the Volcano Bonds. He cheekily added that unless CZ is interested in some, they won’t be talking about it. I’m meeting with @cz_binance tomorrow to discuss OTHER issues, not the Volcano Bonds 🌋 Unless he wants to buy some, of course 😉#Bitcoin fixes FUD! — Nayib Bukele (@nayibbukele) March 23, 2022 In agreement with Bukele, Samson Mow, former Blockstream Chief Strategy Officer, and Advisor tweeted that there has been a delay due to the new laws passed by Congress.

Bukele was surprised that the U.S. Government was afraid of El Salvador’s plans. “The US Government DOES NOT stand for freedom and that is a proven fact. So we will stand for freedom. Game on!” What is Bitcoin Bond Used For?
