Argentina’s minister of foreign affairs, international trade, and worship, Diana Mondino, announced that the recent “Bases for the Reconstruction of the Argentine Economy” decree, aimed at economic reform and deregulation, includes provisions allowing the settlement of contracts in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. The decree, effective since December 20, permits debtors to choose payment in currencies not recognized as legal tender in Argentina. While not explicitly mentioning crypto, the decree opens the door for broader currency choices, including Bitcoin, marking a significant development for cryptocurrency adoption in the country.
