Argentina's national deputy for the province of Mendoza wrote: “I have presented a bill so that dependent workers and service exporters have the option of receiving their full or partial salary in cryptocurrencies. The idea is that they can strengthen their autonomy and maintain the purchasing power of their remuneration”. “This initiative arises from the need to promote greater autonomy and governance of remuneration, without this implying loss of rights or exposure to situations of abuse within the scope of the employment relationship.” The bill can be read in full here. The adoption of cryptocurrency has grown in Argentina, as well as in all of Latin America. In May, an Ámbito report found that Argentines were increasingly interested in bitcoin, ethereum and stablecoins. With an eye on this demand for cryptoactives, Ripio Director Juan José Méndez commented earlier this year to an Argentine television channel that “The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of crypto platforms. Today we have 1 million users in Argentina, when at the beginning of 2020 we had 400 thousand, and this number is growing month by month”.
