Argentina is among the world’s top 10 countries with the highest adoption of cryptocurrencies, according to the specialized website Chainalysis. Buffeted by recurring currency crises and inflation running above 50% annually, two-thirds of Argentines who invest in crypto say they do so to protect their savings from diminishing purchasing power, according to a study by Buenos Aires-based Wunderman Thompson. Data and survey firm Statista estimates that 21% of Argentines had used or owned crypto by 2021.
Customers of both banks will purchase cryptocurrencies through the same platform that they use to purchase bonds or stocks and through a partnership with Argentine-based crypto wallet Lirium. Initially, Banco Galicia will only provide this option to users who receive their salary by direct bank transfer.
