An analysis carried out by Chainalysis determined that Peru is the fourth Latin American country to be part of the top 20 in the world in terms of the use of cryptocurrencies.
On the other hand, the company Buda.com indicated that Lima, the capital, handles 64.7 % of the operations throughout the country with a total of 27.5 million dollars.
According to the country manager of this portal, Carlos Bernos, it would not be frowned upon for Peru to step forward in the regulation of this type of assets.
“It would be good if there were a regulation for several reasons. It will provide certain guidelines to comply with. That is, it will allow certain companies that are not incorporating controls to do so. The second thing is that it is going to give it more institutional support,” indicated the specialist.
It should be noted that the Global Cryptocurrency Adoption Index of the company Chainalysis, classified 154 countries according to three main metrics. Although the firm views professional and institutional markets as crucial, its aim was to highlight countries with the highest adoption of cryptocurrencies by retail investors, focusing on use cases related to transactions and individual savings, rather than trade and speculation.
