For Andragnes, promoter of educational initiatives on bitcoin since 2013, one thing is what bitcoin (and by extension some cryptocurrencies) offers as technology, and quite another is that governments, and in particular Argentina, operate in the same way as far as monetary issue is concerned. Bitcoin,...

    Anti-socialist demonstrations took place across Argentina this weekend against the administration of socialist President Alberto Fernández, whose management has led to a severe economic crisis. The largest protest took place in Buenos Aires, where thousands of people surrounded the obelisk in the central square shouting “freedom, justice, and the constitution.” Drivers honked their horns in support, while inflatable dolls of Fernández and Vice President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner were on full display. Inflatable dolls of politicians wearing prison uniforms, known as pixulecos, originated in neighboring Brazil, where protests attracting millions preceded the impeachment and removal of socialist ex-President Dilma Rousseff in 2016. One of the principal concerns of those in attendance is the state of the country’s struggling economy, currently in the midst of another hyperinflation crisis fueling soaring rates of unemployment. With prices rising on almost a daily basis and the government restricting citizens’ access to U.S. dollars, many Argentines are cashing in their life savings at black-market prices just to ensure they do not lose everything. Another concern prompting the protests is the alleged plan the government has to purchase...
