El Salvador brings Chivo ATMs to the US

El Salvador has brought its commission-free Chivo bitcoin ATMs to several U.S. cities, a move aimed at making it easier and cheaper to send remittances abroad to friends and family in the Central American country. There are now 50 of them in 10 U.S. locations where local legislation permits them. However, there are none in the greater Washington, D.C. area, which has one of the largest Salvadoran populations.
