Bukele also envisions an oncoming explosive growth for El Salvador’s two in-house BTC-based initiatives — Bitcoin City and Volcano bonds. As Cointelegraph previously reported, the president foresees Bitcoin City to become a fully functional city with residential areas, shopping centers, restaurants, a port, “everything around Bitcoin.”

According to Bukele, “Bitcoin City will commence construction” this year, implying the development of the $1 billion BTC bonds-backed virtual city. Along with this development, he predicts an oversubscription of the Volcano bonds.

Bukele also predicts that Bitcoin will become a major electoral issue in U.S. elections this year and told his Twitter followers to be on the lookout for “a huge surprise” at Bitcoin 2022 conference.
