Nayib Bukele, the president of El Salvador, tweeted late Sunday that 44 countries will meet in El Salvador on Monday to discuss bitcoin, among other things.

“Tomorrow, 32 central banks and 12 financial authorities (44 countries) will meet in El Salvador to discuss financial inclusion, the digital economy, banking for the unbanked, the deployment of #Bitcoin and its benefits in our country”, wrote Bukele.

These central banks and authorities are mainly from developing countries, including Nigeria, Egypt, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Paraguay, Angola, Guinea and Madagascar. .

It’s unclear if these countries are meeting explicitly to discuss bitcoin or what the full agenda is.

Bukele tweets come a day after ‘Bitcoin Beach’ Twitter account mentioned several countries fly to El Salvador, officially confirming the meeting. The Bitcoin Beach account describes itself as “the small community that helped Orange Pill become the world’s first Bitcoin nation” in its Twitter bio.

El Salvador became the first country to adopt bitcoin as legal tender last September. It also holds the cryptocurrency on its balance sheet, having accumulated over 2,000 bitcoins to date (worth over $60 million at current prices).
