In what seems like a ccontinous strive to gain ground and establish itself as the leading Bitcoin payment app in the Latin America region, Bitcoin’s Lightning Network-powered app Strike has now launched its services in Argentina. This follows after the firm launched a similar service in El Salvador in March, 2021 which saw a massive demand from investors.
Bitcoin Payment App Launches in Argentina
On Tuesday, the Bitcoin payment service provider announced via the Twitter page of its CEO Jack Mallers, that Argentines now have access to a life-changing financial experience, even as they can now begin using bitcoin remittance payments. The announcement also highlights that nationals may now use the peer-to-peer transaction system of Strike, as well as receive bitcoin tips from their Twitter platform.
Here’s an excerpt from the tweet:
“Today, we launch a superior financial experience to a country that faces hyperinflation, predatory payment networks, and unusable cross-border transfers. Today, we use the world’s open monetary network, #Bitcoin, to give hope to the people of Argentina”
Could Strike Just Be Starting To Scratch The Surface?
Interestingly, Argentina only happens to be the first nation in a series of many other targets that Strike has for 2022.
According to the company’s statement, there are plans to expand into other Latin American markets as well, including Colombia and Brazil.
Although the company is still in the initial stages of launch, early integrations and activations have already begun in the southern city of San Martin de los Andes, in Patagonia.
More Hands on Deck
Strike seems to be going all in with its expansion plans. The firm recently quadrupled its Latin American team towards this early launch in Argentina and there are reports that it plans on hiring more in the region.
CEO Jack Maller also claims that Argentina is undoubtedly one of the most exciting countries where one can build a Bitcoin economy.
