Committed and at the forefront of the cause for the adoption of bitcoin (BTC) as legal tender in Mexico, the senator of Nuevo Leon, Indira Kempis, recently submitted a bill to the union congress. A project represents the legislative body of the federation. This approach aims to trigger the national debate on the issue. A debate which, according to the member of the Mouvement Citoyen party, must include the authorities and President Andres Manuel Obrador.
Will BTC finally be the subject of a national debate?
The leader’s unwavering commitment to the legalization of BTC in Mexico has grown stronger in recent months, where her position has been more echoed in public opinion. She has never failed to speak on numerous occasions to defend this project. This has further fueled the debate among the population. But it takes more to make it a national debate.
For the senator, the good news is that her party, the Mouvement Citoyen, has now included the issue in golden letters in its policy for the defense of financial inclusion. The fact that the party integrates the question is a first step towards its consideration as a matter of national interest.
Now, the senator has revealed that the potential for bitcoin and blockchain adoption could foster greater financial inclusion in the country, but also reduce the social inequalities that exist there. And to add that the question must necessarily be debated.
“We know that the evolution of the internet is cryptocurrencies and blockchain, but in Mexico we haven’t even gone through this debate that should reach the legislative branch or the Mexican executive branch to know exactly what we can do “she regretted.
Mexico is one of the countries with the most crypto wallet holders in the world. According to Gemini, a crypto exchange platform, the adoption rate of the flagship crypto is 22% in 2022. A result obtained after a survey of around 30,000 adults in 20 different countries.
For the Citizen Movement, BTC is a tool that can promote financial inclusion and stimulate economic development. While the national debate around the adoption of BTC is not sufficiently nourished, the party makes it its leitmotif for the defense of financial freedom.
