A Province In Argentina Issued New Stablecoin To Overcome Financial Worries

On Dec 16th, 20222, the provincial assembly of Argentina passed the legislation regarding issuing a new stablecoin.

Moreover, the bill also directed the local artists to mint NFTs in order to fight economic issues and enhance artistic activism within the country.

The officials of San Luis on Friday made it clear that the province will launch its stablecoin. The token is named as “Activo Digital San Luis de Ahorro.”

According to the reports, this upcoming cryptocurrency will only be issued to individuals over 18. Moreover, the digital token will be 100% backed by the province’s liquid capital assets.

What Are Stablecoins and How Do They Work?

The concept is simple and easily understood. Stablecoins are also crypto coins, but the only difference is that the price of these digital tokens is tied to fiat currencies.

For example, if a crypto coin is a U.S. dollar-based stablecoin, its price will be tied to U.S.D.

Different stablecoins are pegged with other fiat currencies. The only reason that developers allow peg is price stability. Stablecoins offers remarkable price sustainability.

External factors determine the market prices of such coins. These coins are developed to fight market volatility. It is also important that stablecoins are more useful than high-liquidity tokens.

Apart from the U.S. currency, stablecoins can be pegged with other commodities such as gold.

Some stablecoins are pegged with fiat currencies, and some stablecoins are with cryptocurrency. But some are also collateralized with commodities other than currency.

A Detailed Look at the Legislation Passed by the Province

The bill allows the provincial government to issue the stablecoin, which equals 2% of the province’s annual budget.

Moreover, the bill has also discussed how the upcoming token will be exchanged between two parties.

But on which trade the token will be available for trade is still unspecified. As of this writing, the current population of San Luis is around 34,000.

The announcement of the issuance of stablecoins is part of the economic revival using innovative technologies such as Web 3.0 and blockchain.

The legislative committee members have said that the aim behind such development is empowering multiple sectors through implementing blockchain technologies.

This step will generate value and bring financial transparency in various sectors sad by the officials.

Moreover, this bill has also permitted local artists to mint their own NFTS for their financial growth.

A Look at the Digital Assets of SAN LUIS Province

The digital art assets are an initiative to empower local artists to bring their digital art to life (NFTs). Then sell it through the various online markets such as Open Sea and many more.

NFT minting will also grant the ownership of every digital token to its creator. That means one person will only own one NFT.

The recent crypto adoption by Argentina is due to the complex financial circumstance that the country is facing.

The country has reached the point where two-digit inflation has started to impact the government’s initiatives and plans to empower society financially and economically.

Officials now believe that crypto adoption is the only way out right now. According to various financial analysts, by the end of the next year, the inflation in Argentina will reach 73.5%.

Besides that, almost 30% of people in the country already use Stablecoins for daily life shopping and other activities.

For retail shopping under $1000, stablecoins are the best mode of payment. Even though crypto adoption is slowing down in global markets. But in emerging markets, crypto adoption is on the rise.

The officials are hopeful that this innovative financial revival will help the country get out of the current financial and economic crisis. Moreover, this will also empower youth through technology.

It is also worth mentioning that one of the country’s all-time greats ‘Lionel Messi’ has already launched his own collection of non-fungible tokens (NFT) just before the start of the world cup.
