Argentina’s President Supports Bitcoin and a CBDC- As it holds above $46,000
Argentina President Alberto Fernandez has indicated support for digital assets and the idea of exploring central bank digital currency (CBDC). The president thinks that Bitcoin acts as a hedge against inflation in the broader global economy. Nevertheless, the country’s Central Bank head has rejected the idea of the president. The head of Argentina’s Central Bank, Miguel Pesce, dismissed the proposal that Argentina would explore a central bank digital currency (CBDC). Miguel Pesce indicated that cryptocurrency is a threat to economic stability and foreshadowing tighter regulations for the sector. According to Miguel Pesce, the Central Bank wishes to prioritize “preventing low-sophistication investors” from engaging the crypto assets, stating: “We are concerned that (cryptocurrencies) are used to generate undue profits on unsuspecting people.”
Meanwhile, BTC’s price is consolidating above the $45,800 as it holds above $46,000. Also, Bitcoin is facing rejection at the $48,000 high.
