Mining hub

Mining means to validate bitcoin transactions by solving complex mathematical problems by using computational power. The persons working behind bitcoin are called miners. The president of El Salvador said that he is working on building the biggest mining hub by establishing a geothermal plant.

It is because mining requires more electricity and power to solve a block of transactions. Miners get a reward of 6.25 BTC for validating one block on the blockchain, and the reward is worth 3,61,882 US dollars at the time of writing this article. So owning a mining hub will lead to generating more revenue for the country. 

He has also announced that all the transactions will happen in cryptocurrency, i.e., bitcoin. You can pay tax in bitcoin, make any payment outside, and receive payments from outside. You can accept bitcoin payment by integrating the code in your website or by generating the QR code in offline stores.
