Bitcoin goes up as pro-BTC candidate Milei wins Argentine presidency

Share Story

In a historic win, Javier Milei has secured the Argentine presidential seat, signaling a potential upheaval in the nation’s economic landscape. Milei, a vocal supporter of Bitcoin and a fierce critic of central banks, has injected optimism into the cryptocurrency market. Following his victory announcement, Bitcoin surged by 3% to reach $37,302.

Jubilant over Milei’s triumph, Reuters reports that Argentina’s discontent with traditional financial institutions, grappling with one of the world’s highest inflation rates, played a significant role in his success. Milei’s outspoken condemnation of central banks as a ‘scam’ and his advocacy for empowering the private sector through cryptocurrencies resonated strongly with voters.

Provisional results indicate Milei securing over 55% of the votes, providing a clear mandate from the Argentine public. His main rival, Sergio Massa, conceded the run-off vote even before the official results were declared. Notably, Milei’s victory represents a remarkable ascent for the former TV pundit and political outsider who vowed to “break up with the status quo.”

One of Milei’s bold campaign promises is to dollarize Argentina, a move unprecedented for a country of its size, effectively relinquishing control of monetary policy to U.S. decision-makers. This proposal underscores Milei’s commitment to radical economic reforms, including a potential shift towards cryptocurrencies.

Milei’s election may usher in a new era for Argentina, where the adoption of digital currencies becomes a cornerstone of economic policy. The global financial community closely watches this development, as it could set a precedent for nations grappling with inflation and distrust in traditional banking systems, turning towards decentralized digital currencies for stability and growth.
