In a recent post, the creator of Dogecoin, known by the pseudonym Shibetoshi Nakamoto, floated the idea of Argentina adopting Dogecoin as its reserve currency. This peculiar statement came amidst discussions sparked by the election of Argentina’s new president, who has pledged radical economic changes, including the closure of the central bank and the adoption of the US dollar as the sole currency.
While the developer clarified that he is not advocating for such a move, he found humor in the possibility, stating, “It would be somewhat funny if Argentina adopted Dogecoin as its reserve currency.” He even went on to compare the stability of Dogecoin to the Argentine peso, noting that the meme-inspired cryptocurrency has been more stable in recent years, albeit with a tongue-in-cheek acknowledgment of its notorious volatility in previous years.
Nakamoto’s musings align with the economic turmoil in Argentina and the unconventional proposals of the president-elect. It appears that the Argentine peso is on the fringes of Milei’s plans, prompting the creator of Dogecoin to humorously join the speculation conversation.
