“Buy the dip” strategy might not be as good as El Salvador’s president thought

Contents

The first country to adopt Bitcoin as a legal tender has become the victim of mockery from the anti-crypto community and some of its influencers after the digital gold dropped to $43,000, putting the first-ever country to officially buy Bitcoin at a loss.

The average entry price for El Salvador

The country made multiple Bitcoin buys in correction periods during the crypto market bullrun. The most recent purchase was made back when Bitcoin had only reached $50,000.

According to the Twitter account of the country’s president, the average entry of the crypto-trading country stays at approximately $49,000. It is important to note that the country’s Bitcoin buying spree might face deceleration, with the latest buy order volume at approximately $1 million compared to the average 100-150 BTC buy orders.

How much does the country make by trading Bitcoin?

While the “buy the dip” strategy can sometimes be profitable and easy to use, in El Salvador’s case, it did not play out well in the mid-term. If we keep in mind that the average entry of the country is at approximately $50,000, their current crypto portfolio should remain at approximately a 15% loss.

Famous Bitcoin critic Peter Schiff has joined the anti-crypto community by calling out El Salvador President Nayib Bukele for forcing the country’s citizens into a “pyramid scheme” instead of giving them more financial freedom.

At press time, Bitcoin is trading at $43,000 and losing 1% in the last 24 hours. The larger drop the day before was caused by numerous factors, including political instability in one of the world’s largest hashrate providers, Kazakhstan, and stricter rhetoric coming from the American Federal Reserve, which is willing to act rigorously to accelerate inflation in the country.
