Mexican billionaire Ricardo Salinas Pliego, who owns the Banco Azteca banking business with a fortune of $15.8 bn, said his bank might start using bitcoin. This will make his bank the first one to use cryptocurrency in the country. Last year Pliego stated, he invested 10% of his liquid portfolio into bitcoin. He recommends the use of bitcoin but asks to study cryptocurrency and its future. Bitcoin increased by 7.5% on Sunday and reached the $34,000 mark.
