St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Terrance Drew announced that BCH will become legal tender in the country by March 2023 during a BCH conference in St. Kitts and Nevis.

He added that the country will also look into mining BCH and welcomes dialogue and exploration of “future opportunities” with the cryptocurrency.

The announcement comes amid a growing trend of mainstream adoption of cryptocurrencies, as demonstrated by the Central African Republicย adopting Bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender in April.

The announcement has led to debate over the country’s choice to adopt Bitcoin Cash instead of Bitcoin, with supporters of the decision pointing naysayers to the WhyBitcoinCash website for information.
