Alberto Fernández will support bitcoin law debate, says Argentine deputy

Greetings, today we will talk about the opportunity that is brewing in Argentina on the adoption of BTC as a project to pay salaries of workers, freelancers to be more specific.




Argentina, a country that receives a high economic income due to its exceptional tax management, is highly interested in bringing to conversation in its legislative train the possibility of free transit payments for workers.

Alberto Fernández, president of Argentina, "is going to support the discussion of this project." This was said by the national deputy José Luis Ramón, in relation to the bill that, if approved, will allow the collection of salaries in bitcoin (BTC) and cryptocurrencies in the South American nation.

In a dialogue with the lawyer Camilo Jorajuría de León, a member of the NGO Bitcoin Argentina, through a video call, the deputy said that on Monday, July 19, he met in person with the president and informed him of his bill.

As reported by CriptoNoticias, the text entitled "Regime for the perception of salary in cryptocurrencies" was presented in Congress at the beginning of July , by the aforementioned Mendoza politician, from the Federal Unit and Equity party.

"[The president] is a guy that I see in line with starting to discuss these issues," said Ramón during the talk. He clarified that "it is not the same to be president of the Nation as a legislator" because, as he explained, as a deputy he has "a certain freedom to be able to raise these things." In any case, the politician maintains that Alberto Fernández "understands what the project is about".



The law would benefit freelancers and salaried employees

Regarding the former, the politician mentioned, during the talk, that one of the objectives with which the law thought is "that financial intermediaries stop cheating." "When someone provides a service abroad, they earn USD 100, and they receive USD 60, someone keeps money in the middle!", He assured.

In addition, for both freelancers and salaried employees, another objective of the project, according to the deputy, is that crypto assets are easily used as a store of value . This is especially important in the South American nation, which suffers from constant inflation and devaluation of its currency.

Regarding the Argentine financial system, Ramón maintains that it is "populated by banks that are generating enormous abuses in many citizens." "The decentralized system, from my personal experience, is proving to be much safer and cheaper than the centralized systems of the Central Bank," he said.



José Luis Ramón on the Bitcoin Law: "Argentina is not the same as El Salvador"

Mentioning the issue of financial intermediation led the dialogue between José Luis Ramón and Camilo Jorajuría de León to focus for a few minutes on El Salvador. As this media has reported, the Central American country recently approved the Bitcoin Law, which establishes that cryptocurrency as legal tender.

One of the objectives of the Salvadoran Bitcoin Law is to facilitate the receipt of remittances , which constitute 24% of that country's income , according to the World Bank.

China and the digital yuan: "they have a supreme shit"

The dialogue on the international scene led the interlocutors to talk about central bank digital currencies (CBDC, for its acronym in English). The Bahamas has already released its sand dollar and China is in an advanced testing stage on the digital yuan .

Regarding the case of China, and when asked by Jorajuría de León, Deputy Ramón said: "It may be something rude, but they have a supreme shit." With this expression from the River Plate that is equivalent to "being afraid", the politician implied that, according to him, in the Asian country they are concerned about the advancement of a decentralized financial system , such as Bitcoin .source
