The Central African Republic has become the second country after El Salvador to recognize Bitcoin as its official currency.
The country, which has large diamond, gold and uranium deposits, is still among the poorest countries in the world.
The country, which has been the scene of armed conflicts for decades, is allied with Russia and receives support from the Wagner group to fight the rebels.
According to the statement made by the Central African Republic Presidency, the decision to accept Bitcoin as the official currency was taken unanimously in the Parliament.
“This move has made the Central African Republic one of the bravest and most visionary countries in the world,” the statement said.
