At the beginning of 2020, Ripio who is known as Argentina’s largest crypto exchange currently had more than 400,000 users. This seems to be finishing the year with nearly 1 million. The brand officer of Ripio Juan Mendez recently stated that nearly 705 of the Ripio users are basically from Argentine. He also reminded that the focus is more on Brazil. As per Mendez, the platform also has seen a tenfold increase in the volume of the trade this year as compared to the previous one. There has been a notice with the exchange for quite some time but such kind of development was never noticed. For Mendez as well, this turned out to be bigger as compared to the spike on-demand and operations that took place in the year 2017.
The Economic woes of Argentine from the enormous debt compulsions for the growing inflation well blended with the pandemic crises have resulted in the crowd to look for other approaches for saving their wealth. However, the government has now limited the purchases of U.S dollars by the citizens and crypto has also quickly proved to another finest thing that happened. Crypto exchanges along with Ripio that were operating in Argentina even recorded better growth in 2020 with a certain experience of highs that happened in the trading volume toward the other half of the year.
Bisto which is the crypto exchange from Mexico has also increased its operation to Argentina recently post it noticed a 68% increase in the trade volume at the platform ion the third quarter of 2020. The move to Argentina has also helped Bitso to pass the more than 1 million user milestones this year. Other than this, the growth of such crypto trades in Argentina seems to be reflecting quite a retention trend since Paxful and LocalBitcoins also recorded high trade in South America that also includes Chile.
