The announcement comes amid a growing trend of mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies, as demonstrated by the Central African Republic adopting Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender in April.
The announcement has led to debate over the country’s choice to adopt Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin, with supporters of the decision pointing naysayers to the WhyBitcoinCash website for information.
