Paraguay paid bitcoin to Argentina in an export deal

For the first time in the history of international trade, the country paid for the supply of cryptocurrency goods. A shipment of chemicals for agriculture from Argentina was paid by the buyer from Paraguay with a bitcoin. Although the amount of the transaction does not exceed $ 15,000, the precedent itself is important.

In Latin America, cryptocurrencies have proved more popular than in many other regions. For example, in Argentina it is already possible to replenish traditional transport cards with cryptocurrency. In Paraguay, it is planned to launch a whole network of mining centers. However, cryptocurrency is the most popular among residents of Venezuela. Due to the economic crisis and inflation there, a significant part of the calculations was transferred to the blockchain technology.
