The news rocked the crypto space, with people quoting MoneyGram CEO Alexander Holmes after he made favorable statements that mentioned El Salvador.
In detail, Holmes said:
If a country like El Salvador is going to make Bitcoin seamless with US dollars in country, I think that consumers, through MoneyGram, should be able to transfer Bitcoin to El Salvador or transfer dollars and convert them to Bitcoin. If that’s where the world is going, let’s participate in that world, and let’s see how we can help fulfill that opportunity.
