In an interview this week, Alberto Fernandez (Argentina’s president) stated that he was open to the use of cryptocurrencies as legal tender. Fernandez stated that there is much debate around cryptocurrency use, not only in Argentina, but all over the globe. Fernandez acknowledged that this topic should be addressed carefully and admitted that he did not have a lot of knowledge on the subject.
Alberto Fernandez, the current president of Argentina, expressed his opinion of cryptocurrencies in the Black Box, an interview program hosted by Julio Leiva, an Argentinian journalist. Fernandez answered a question about cryptocurrency and whether his government was investigating it.
“This is a subject that must be treated carefully. In my case, because it is still unknown to me. Some still don’t understand how this money is materialized. These doubts I have are shared by many, that’s why the project has not expanded further.”
