Bitcoin Latin America.
The main agenda of the event was to engage the government officials responsible for regulations to review the regulatory practices that are applicable to bitcoin and other digital currencies. As the event coincided with ongoing Virtual Currencies in the Financial and Regulatory Environment Forum which held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, it was live streamed at the venue as well.
The event was received well by bitcoin enthusiasts and entrepreneurs across Argentina. The Buenos Aires event was the first conference of such kind to be held with government’s support in Latin America. The conference was opened by Mr. Gonzalo Blousson, the founder of BitCourt. He offered a brief overview of the history of money, giving details about its origins and features.
Another notable speaker at the event was one of the founders of Bitcoin Argentina, Rodolfo Andragnes who spoke about bitcoin and relation between bitcoin and blockchain technology.
Bitcoin businesses are still at nascent stages, and having clarity in terms of regulations will be helpful for the companies to start up and provide services accordingly. It will also encourage more people to use bitcoin. Franco Amati from Bitcoin Argentina and Buenos Aires Bitcoin Center praised the government for its initiative.
