And even more so about Bitcoin. Thus, the announcement of one of the most important banking leaders in Mexico, where he explains that his bank decided to accept Bitcoin soon, came as part of the wave of positive news for Bitcoin.

Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego has confirmed that his bank will enable support for Bitcoin. In this way, Salinas becomes one of the hundreds of relevant characters announcing his adoption of Bitcoin in his bank.
Likewise, Banco Azteca will be one of the first Mexican banks to accept Bitcoin soon. This according to a Tweet Thursday from Salinas.

Returning to the central focus of the news, the founder and president of Grupo Salinas, whose net worth is estimated at $ 15.6 billion, also added Bitcoin laser eyes to his Twitter profile photo to show his support for the quintessential cryptocurrency.
In late June, Salinas announced that Banco Azteca aimed to become the first Mexican bank to add support for the reference currency.
Finally, in November, the third-richest Mexican billionaire revealed that he had converted 10 percent of his impressive portfolio to Bitcoin. Being one of the relevant investors in being part of the adoption of Bitcoin.
The acceptance of crypto is increasingly present
Salinas has explained on multiple occasions that he sees the largest cryptocurrency as a good way to diversify one’s investment portfolio. Thus, quoting his words, he said:
