El Salvador has announced the launch of its Bitcoin bond next month. Salvadorans are riding the wave of institutional Bitcoin adoption, fueling a bullish outlook among investors. 
El Salvador plans on issuing its first Bitcoin bond in March 2022. The Salvadoran Finance Minister, Alejandro Zelaya told a local news show that the government plans to issue the Bitcoin bond between March 15 and March 20. 
Zelaya was quoted as saying:
If we really want to build this country, we have to invest in it like this.
The Salvadoran Bitcoin Bond will pay investors 6.5% per annum. $500 million raised from the bond issuance will be used for Bitcoin mining and developing renewable energy from volcanoes, another $500 million for buying more Bitcoin. 
El Salvador’s government plans to issue $1 billion for the first bond and expects it to be oversubscribed by an additional $500 million. The minimum purchase is $100, and investors can directly buy without involving a broker. 
The Bitcoin bond would be issued on Blockstream’s Liquid Network sidechain. 
Salvador’s move to launch a Bitcoin bond is timed in accordance with the rising corporate adoption of the asset. Firms are keen on adding Bitcoin to their balance sheet; recent Wells Fargo and JP Morgan reports have affirmed a bullish outlook on BTC price. 
Analysts at FSInsights recently evaluated the Bitcoin price trend and set a target of $222,000 for the end of 2022. 
FXStreet analysts believe that Bitcoin price could stumble on track to $50,000.

Polkadot price has been hammered south since last Thursday. DOT has lost up to 21% in just five days, returning it precipitously close to three-month and 2022 lows. Hidden bullish divergence is the only condition that could prevent a massive sell-off.
XRP price recently broke the bear market trendline on its $0.02/3-box reversal Point and Figure chart. That break occurred when XRP tagged the $0.92 price level, but it promptly sold off from there. Downside risks exist but are likely limited.
Shiba Inu price action has outperformed a good chunk of the altcoin market. SHIBA has performed admirably despite experiencing intense selling pressure leading up to and after the poor US CPI data last Thursday.  Limited downside risks ahead.
Solana price has presented a buy opportunity as it dropped to a critical level of support before resuming its prevailing uptrend. The Ethereum-killer is preparing for a major rally toward $130 as a technical indicator suggests that SOL may have just formed a local bottom. 
Bitcoin price is at an inflection point of its recent uptrend and is likely to reverse and establish a directional bias. If BTC sets a higher low, there is a good chance the rally will continue; else, investors can expect a steep correction.
