Argentinians Are Flocking To Bitcoin Amid Inflation And Government Suppression
The demand for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are surging rapidly in Argentina as citizens look for new ways to tackle inflation, according to AFP News reports.
Maximiliano Hinz, Latin American director of crypto exchange Binance, said:
The number of user accounts for investing in cryptocurrencies has multiplied by ten in Argentina since 2020.
As per the report, the worth of Argentina’s sovereign currency, the Peso, is deflating since inflation averaged 45% over the past three years. Additionally, the nation’s GDP has declined by about 10% in 2020, while the economy has been in recession since 2018.
Historically, Argentinians invested their money in USD to balance the inflation, but this method has become unviable recently. Apart from low interest rates in local banks, the government has also imposed a strict purchase limit of $200 per month for citizens.
In this light, digital assets have become the obvious solution to the economic issues in Argentina. According to Hinz, there are roughly two million trading accounts registered in the country currently. The total population of the country is 45 million. Digital assets specialist Marcos Zocaro said:
It is no coincidence that Argentina and Venezuela, countries with high inflation, are the main crypto poles in South America.
I have older clients who used to be afraid of making a fixed deposit with a bank but are buying cryptocurrency without fear of risk.
Argentinians are increasingly resorting to cryptocurrencies as a means of payment as everything, including cars and second-hand clothes, can be bought and sold for digital assets in the country.
A few days back, local e-commerce firm Libre announced that it would enable Bitcoin payments for real estate.
Bitcoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Bitcoin price will need to cross over the $58,000 resistance barrier to reach the $60,000 psychological level.
