Salvadorans protest over country's plans to use Bitcoin

Retirees, veterans, disability pensioners, and workers expressed their concerns that the government would start paying their pensions in bitcoins instead of U.S. dollars.

"We know this coin fluctuates drastically. Its value changes from one second to another and we will have no control over it," said the member of the Supreme Court of Justice's workers union Stanley Quinteros.

There is also a concern that people don't understand the technology needed to use crypto-currency.
