For Binance, Argentina serves as a key opportunity based on its embrace of cryptocurrencies.

According to Binance, the country is on the verge of massive blockchain adoption showing an openness to crypto use as reflected by its support for crypto payments in public transportation and ATMs.

Argentina’s economy has also suffered a recesssion and the local curency has lost half of its value as inflation hit 31.2%.
