Meanwhile, the Central Bank of Argentina (BCRA) has been watching crypto develop with “concern,” CoinDesk reported.
Miguel Pesce, president of the bank, has said, per the report, the name cryptocurrency is “not appropriate,” as crypto references something hidden and opaque, while the blockchain-based units of payments seem to be the opposite to him.
In an official BCRA document, the central bank has also expressed cryptocurrencies aren’t really legal tender, adding that they have high volatility, are often exposed to cyberattacks and security deficiencies, and have no safeguards, the report stated.
Pesce called stability “fundamental” for a currency, according to the report.
