Who accepts Bitcoin in El Salvador?

In 2021, El Salvador became the first country to make Bitcoin legal tender, which means that companies operating in El Salvador must accept Bitcoin if presented as payment for their goods and services.

Therefore, every company that operates in El Salvador accepts Bitcoin as payment. The implications of this are huge because many multinational organizations operate in the small South American country. Here are a few companies that operate in El Salvador (and therefore accept Bitcoin):

  • McDonalds
  • Starbucks
  • Unilever
  • Walmart
  • AT&T
  • Pizza Hut
  • Apple
  • Subway
  • Lowes
  • Cisco Systems
