Most Salvadorans oppose the government's decision to make Bitcoin (CRYPTO: BTC) a legal tender in the country alongside the United States dollar.
What Happened: According to a Reuters report, a poll by the local university Central American University showed that at least 67.9% of 1,281 people disagree or strongly disagree with the use of Bitcoin as a legal tender.
Only over 32% of the survey participant said that they agree with the decision, at least to some extent.
The study was issued just days before El Salvador's Bitcoin adoption becomes effective on Sept 7.
The poll was carried out in August and also showed that nine out of 10 people did not have a clear understanding of Bitcoin, and eight out of 10 had little to no confidence in its use.
Lastly, seven out of 10 said that they believe lawmakers should repeal the law making Bitcoin a legal tender.
