60 Minutes feature on El Salvador’s Bitcoin Beach will air Sunday

60 Minutes, the CBS news show that has been running since 1968, will feature El Salvador’s Beach in a new episode airing April 10.

According to a Friday post from 60 Minutes’ Twitter (NYSE:) account, the investigative news show will air a segment on the crypto-friendly area of El Zonte, a village located in El Salvador, where residents and visitors have been able to use Bitcoin (BTC) to pay for anything from utility bills to tacos. Sharyn Alfonsi, a journalist and correspondent for the show, interviewed Mike Peterson, one of the people who funded the project and encouraged crypto adoption among residents.
