Argentina President is Positive on Bitcoin Adoption
The interest in Bitcoin in South America spills over from El Salvador to Argentina. Argentina president Alberto Fernandez talked positively about Bitcoin to the local media. Fernandez said that Bitcoin and digital currencies are debated on the world stage, and people need to be cautious because it is unfamiliar and how this fortune materializes. He answered the question about the Bitcoin adoption, saying, “I don’t want to go too far out on a limb … but there is no reason to say no.”
The president took over the president role in Argentina when the country was experiencing a high inflation rate. Still, the inflation rate in Argentina is 51.8, which makes them the 7th country in the world inflation index, according to Trading Economics. The adoption of Bitcoin can be beneficial for Argentina from this standpoint.
Even though Fernandez is prone to Bitcoin but the Central Bank’s president, Miguel Pesce, mentioned that Bitcoin “is not a real financial asset, and does not generate any lasting profitability” according to the local media.
