Teaching the population

It is worth remembering that the law has not been free of opposition, many politicians, citizenship and international organizations have criticized it, however the government has insisted on its implementation until making it a reality. In fact, the Executive itself has made publicity and educational campaigns so that the population is not afraid of its use. It has also had to clarify that it is compulsory for businesses to accept payments in Bitcoinpayments, although they can exchange them for dollars.
