Digital money: Argentina’s solution to its economic crisis
As the leading cryptocurrency in the market, Bitcoin is the solution Argentinian investors are considering during the current economic crisis.
Economist and mathematician, D.H.Taylor stated:
“Argentinians are moving in large numbers out of their peso and into a more stable currency, BTC. The numbers being witnessed by the markets in BTC are surging from Argentina.” He adds that “The stability being offered by the digital currency is far greater than the peso and Argentinians are moving in quickly.” Additionally, Taylor used a chart of weekly volume BTC purchased in Argentina as an undeniable evidence.
Argentina has been undergoing an economic crisis since April 2018, when the peso was dropping in value against the dollar. However, Argentina still remains one of the wealthiest countries in Latin America.
The sudden drop of the peso according to most economists is due to the relationship between investors and the government. Investors are suspicious of the government’s ability to contain unrelenting inflation, and to minimise the effects of the U.S. Federal Reserve interest rate. Whilst this led to a drop in the value of the peso, it actually strengthened the value of the dollar.
Nowadays, it seems the Argentinian Central Bank is looking for solutions such as diversifying into digital currency. Athena Bitcoin installed the first crypto ATM on September 19th 2018, so that people can exchange cryptocurrency in a public space.
Matias Goldenhorn, the Athena Bitcoin Director for Latin America made the case so much clearer by stating that this system, expected to spread soon in Buenos Aires, will operate with BTC, Litecoin, Ethereum and BTC Cash. Taylor states that currently, there are nearly 8,000 Bitcoin pay stations in Argentina.
