El Salvador’s decision to adopt BTC as a legal tender has rattled the cages in Central and South America. Argentina’s president was the latest to showcase support to some extent in a recent interview.
- Speaking to the local media outlet Caja Negra, Alberto Fernandez touched on the topic of digitalization and where the country stands on it.
- More specifically, he received a question whether Argentina will look into launching its own central bank digital currency or perhaps even adopting Bitcoin as a legal tender.
“I don’t want to go too far out on a limb … but there is no reason to say ‘no.’ Perhaps that is a good path to take.”
