Hinojosa was not the only Mexico lawmaker indicating their support for crypto. Indira Kempis Martinez, a senator representing the state of Nuevo León, has also switched her profile to show laser eyes, with Hinojosa referring to her as a friend to the cause. “We are going to lead the shift to crypto and fintech in Mexico,” said Hinojosa.The social media activity comes as countries in Latin America have seemingly been taking steps towards greater adoption of crypto. In a video announcement to attendees of the Bitcoin 2021 conference last week, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele said he would send a bill to the country’s legislature demanding that Bitcoin be made legal tender. On Sunday, Paraguayan congressperson Carlitos Rejala hinted that crypto would be connected to “an important project to innovate Paraguay in front of the world” starting this week. Yesterday he added that he was working with local crypto figures “in order for Paraguay to become a hub for the crypto investors of the world.”A politician from Paraguay (@carlitosrejala) has posted a laser eyes photo and promised a bitcoin announcement this week.Just as we saw MicroStrategy start the domino effect for public companies, El Salvador will likely be a catalyst for other countries.
