The former president of the country met with Vitalik Buterin and called the decentralized platform one of the main innovative technologies of the 21st century
Ethereum is one of the most innovative decentralized technologies of the current century, according to the former President of Argentina, Mauricio Macri. He posted on Twitter a photo from a meeting with the creator of the platform, Vitalik Buterin.
“Ethereum currency is one of the most valuable in the world. We are discussing the possibilities of using cryptocurrencies and blockchain by states, ”the former president wrote.
The surge of interest in cryptocurrency in Argentina happened last year, amid the hyperinflation of the local currency. Residents of the country transferred record amounts of funds to bitcoins.
Last week, for the first time in Europe, the bank offered its clients investments in Ethereum. In the application of the Swiss branch of bank BBVA, you can automatically convert cryptocurrencies into euros or US dollars.
