Brazilians bought over $4 billion worth of crypto in 2021
Brazils Central Bank has released data showing that its citizens have spent a total of $4.27 billion on cryptocurrency alone since the beginning of the year.Brazilians bought Bitcoin at its peak
Per the data, investors in Brazil traded more Bitcoin than any other crypto when the flagship digital asset touched its ATH of $65,000 in May. It was revealed that during this month, around $756 million was spent on the purchase of cryptocurrencies.
Speaking of other months, crypto investors in Brazil spent around $400 million on crypto investments in January, $357 million in March while spending an almost identical amount in the remaining months.
While the bank did not state why the countrys citizens were investing heavily in crypto, one of the reasons could be tied to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic on the economy of the country which led to the debasement of the national currency.
Apart from that, crypto provides a viable access to financial services for the unbanked, thereby promoting financial inclusion. It is also a known fact that the youth across many countries in the world have been driving crypto adoption within their region, and Brazil is no different.Brazil wants to regulate crypto
Recently, the legislative arm of the Brazilian government hinted that they might be interested in approving a crypto-friendly bill in the nearest future. The legislators have, however, denied that they would be making Bitcoin a legal tender like El Salvador.
Instead, it appears that they are more interested in presenting a bill that would make crypto investments easier for the citizens whilst punishing those who might look to defraud noobs in the space.
Presently, the bill is being considered by the Chamber‘s Plenary after it was approved by a committee of the Chamber of Deputies. If the Chamber’s Plenary also passes the bill, it would then be discussed by the Senate before it is presented to the President for approval.
