With Argentina?s economic monster now digging its claws into their sporting industry, an Argentinian football club has turned to crypto to help push through the sale of a player.

Club Atl?tico Banfield sold Giuliano Galoppo for around $8 million worth of USD Coin to Sao Paulo FC, who are one of the biggest teams in Brazil. The transfer was processed using Mexican crypto exchange, Bitso, which is one of the largest South American crypto exchanges.

The transfer takes place in trying times for Argentinian sports clubs with the rapidly decreasing value of the peso making it even harder for clubs to sell to international teams. Argentina?s volatile economy has led to a huge adoption of cryptocurrencies, especially stablecoins like USDC.
