SAN SALVADOR, June 7 (Reuters) - The U.S. dollar will
continue to be legal tender in El Salvador with bitcoin
transactions by choice only, the nation's top trade official
said on Monday, after President Nayib Bukele faced criticism for
aiming to adopt bitcoin as legal tender.
Trade and Investment Minister Miguel Kattan also said
bitcoin operations would be linked to the dollar exchange rate
in the Central American country.
