El Salvador President Nayib Bukele said the Central American country had taken advantage the 7.7% decline in Bitcoin on Friday to purchase 100 more of the coins.
El Salvador previously bought a total of 1,100 Bitcoin as of Oct. 27. The country made the cryptocurrency legal tender alongside the dollar from Sept. 7.
Dollar bonds from El Salvador are among the worst-performing in emerging markets so far this month, lagging only defaulted Lebanese debt, according to data compiled from a Bloomberg index.
The selloff in the bonds came as investors weighed the possibility of higher indebtedness in the Central American nation, as well as rising concern it will not reach a deal with the International Monetary Fund.
