The government has decided to use the surplus from its State Bitcoin Trust which at present holds approximately 1,120 Bitcoin.

Bukele’s spokesperson has also stated that the additional profits derived will be directed towards building the schools only and none of the Salvadoran taxes will be used for this particular undertaking.

The plan to construct 20 new schools will be a part of  El Salvador’s original plan to establish 400 schools to educate the public and strengthen the educational sector of the country. The country has also acquired sizable funding of $200 million from the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) to enhance its educational services in the country.

Previously, the El Salvadoran government had also announced its plan to spend $4 million from the Bitcoin Trust to construct a new veterinary hospital in the nation.

El Salvador BTC, a Twitter handle that has been actively tracking the country’s Bitcoin purchases and earnings, has revealed that the country has made roughly $12 million in profits so far when the prices of Bitcoin maintained a steady pace and traded at  $53,062.

The account has also been tracking the $30 incentive that the El Salvadoran government had promised its citizens to boost the crypto adoption drive in the country.  As per El Salvador, the $30 incentive is now valued at $38 proving that the crypto adoption drive was a hit among the citizens.
