JPMorgan, American megabank’s economic expert, shared their options recently about the Legalization of Bitcoin by El Salvador’ president.

According to Steve Palacio, Expert of JPMorgan, El Salvador’s decision may put a big pressure on the Bitcoin network.

According to Steve, almost 90% of the transactions of Bitcoin happen on Trading exchange and the rest of them are wallet to wallet. 

But now if El Salvador’s citizens will use Bitcoin at such a huge level then it will result in pressure for the Bitcoin network. It will result in 1% more pressure in comparison with last year transaction activity and 4% more strain in comparison with current time transactions activities. 

And also he pointed out the impact of adoption of Bitcoin on fiat value.

They said if  people will have full support for Bitcoin as legal currency then most of the people will convert their funds into Bitcoin and that will lead to a big problem for Monetary Authorities to sustain the value of dollar at global level.

Well here probably, JP Morgan experts don’t know about the situation of El Salvador because Salvadorians don’t have their own legal currency. They are only using Dollar for their needs and now they are using Bitcoin alongside Dollar for their needs. Here El Salvador’s Authorities are just adopting a mode of payment and they are ready to face all possible.
