El Salvador bought an additional 150 bitcoins, President Nayib Bukele announced, bringing the Central American country’s holdings of volatile cryptocurrency to 700 coins.

“We just bought a drop,” Bukele tweeted on Sunday evening, referring to a recent drop in bitcoin prices.

Earlier this month, El Salvador became the first country to adopt bitcoin as its official currency alongside the US dollar.
