Cardano Foundation Announces Major Argentine Partnership To Boost Blockchain Adoption

Table of Contents

The Cardano Foundation has announced a public partnership with a regional government in Argentina, in a move that could benefit the country’s recent pivot towards crypto. 

Many are hopeful the partnership could act as a catalyst for ADA, Cardano’s native token, which has failed to generate any momentum in an increasingly competitive market. 

Cardano’s New Partnership

According to an announcement by the Cardano Foundation, Rogelio Frigerio, the governor of the Entre Ríos Province, and Rafael Fraga, LATAM Lead for Business Development at the Cardano Foundation signed the agreement to make the partnership official. The partnership will focus primarily on facilitating blockchain adoption in the Entre Ríos Province. The Cardano Foundation took to X to share the news of the partnership, stating, 

“We are delighted to announce a new partnership in Argentina! Following a public signing between @frigeriorogelio and @rafaelfraga_f, the #CardanoFoundation is collaborating with Entre Ríos state to further #blockchain adoption.”

While details about the collaboration remain sketchy, it will likely be part of Argentina’s effort to improve and bolster its crypto sector. The country is working to grow its cryptocurrency ecosystem and create a clear regulatory framework for the industry. 

Cardano’s Argentina Plans 

Charles Hoskinson, the founder of Cardano, caught the attention of the president of Argentina, Javier Milei, through a social media interaction. The engagement between the two highlighted Cardano’s interest in expanding its operations in Argentina, which comes at a time when Argentina is actively embracing blockchain technology and crypto. The interaction began with an update from Dario Epstein, Director at Research For Traders, who stated that a technology company specializing in third-generation blockchain and a focus on decentralized governance had gotten in touch with him. He also added that the company was keen on establishing itself in Argentina. 

Hoskinson replied to the post, praising Argentina’s tech talent, indicating that the company in question could be Cardano. 

“Over the past eight years, developers from Argentina like ATIX’s Alan Verbner have been invaluable in the development of some of Cardano. Argentina has some of the brightest minds in our industry, and it has been a privilege to work with them.”

Argentina’s Crypto Expansion 

Argentina is looking to significantly boost its crypto infrastructure. The country’s National Securities Commission recently announced a partnership with El Salvador’s National Commission of Digital Assets, with the goal of exploring Bitcoin adoption and crypto regulation. Argentina plans to leverage its technology sector expertise to enhance its crypto services' efficiency. The move came after the country’s Minister of Foreign Relations and International Commerce, Diana Modino, spearheaded a move to use Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies in contracts. 

The recent election of Javier Milei as president has played a crucial role in shifting Argentina’s stance on cryptocurrencies. Milei’s administration has embraced cryptocurrencies and is planning to use them in payments under specific conditions. 

Could This Partnership Revive ADA?

While the cryptocurrency space has seen considerable growth over the past few months, Cardano’s native ADA token has struggled. According to data from CoimMarketCap, ADA is currently trading at $0.47, and while it has registered a growth of 40% over the past year, it has struggled to maintain its momentum. Market watchers are hopeful the collaboration can have a positive impact on ADA.
