El Salvador’s Credit Risk is now rising due to the BTC trade of the country, according to Moody. Moody is a well-known agency of credit rating. It has now a faith in that the crypto experiment of El Salvador has helped the increase of the nation’s risk profile. Such a thing can even limit the nation’s access to abroad debt marketplaces.
El Salvador’s Credit Risk
Based on the Investors Service of Moody, BTC’s historic adoption in El Salvador could have negative results. Most of these results are on the credit outlook of the country. Jaime Reushce, an analyst in Moody, expressed to Bloomberg this week about the BTC gambit of El Salvador. She said that it “certainly adds to the risk portfolio” of a nation that had so many challenges with liquidity long time ago.
El Salvador, under the governance of Nayib Bukele, its president, has defined BTC assets as legal money of the nation. Also, the president published a crypto wallet based on the state to make payments, send and receiving of money, and also the ownership easier. El Salvador, in this way, made everyone surprised by accumulating a treasury of 1,391 Bitcoins, which is now making everyone concerned about El Salvador’s credit risk. Nayib Bukele is known for “buying the dip” on numerous opportunities. He actually used the resilience of BTC to increase the nation’s property.

Reusche, by the way, issued warnings about the fact that collecting more BTC could increase the background risk of El Salvador. He mentioned: “If it gets much higher, then that represents an even greater risk to repayment capacity and the fiscal profile of the issuer.”

Is El Salvador’s Credit Risk Increasing?
Moody also expressed some concerns about the foreign markets. It said that plus the Bukele’s nation decline credit trade, also the BTC volcano bond of the nation could easily extend the access of it to the bond marketplaces abroad. Profits of this bond, which everyone expected to increase to exactly $1 billion, is going to offer its usability in the BTC City project of El Salvador’s funding.
Also, the fact that legacy financial organizations attack BTC gambit of El Salvador is not new, and we have heard a lot about it. The International Monetary Fund of Washington, in November 2021, issued warnings to El Salvador for not using BTC for its legal money. Also, the World Bank has refused El Salvador’s demand for helping in applying its BTC rules. He wanted to apply the rules over claimed environmental and transparency challenges of him.
Keeping all that in mind, the Bukele’s nation has stood consistent in BTC adoption and making a good area for investors and entrepreneurs of this asset. Alejandro Zelaya, the finance minister of the country, also said last week that the BTC rules had absorbed investments from abroad even now.
