Popular Bitcoin news and analysis platform NewsBTC.com has announced expansion into Central America, a territory which consists of seven countries: Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.
The announcement has surfaced as the part of NewsBTC’s global expansion plans, a step that enables it to become a multilingual Bitcoin news platform. The website’s entry into the Central American territory is aimed at bringing the most up-to-dated digital currency industry updates in area’s official language — Spanish. The same platform will ambidextrously address the Europe’s Spanish-speaking population as well.
As CEO Jonathan Millet explains, he started to see potential of a fruitful Bitcoin market in Central America when one of its countries — Honduras — announced to utilize blockchain, the digital currency’s underlying technology, for handling government land disputes.
“I could therefore see how much the people in this region deserved to know about Bitcoin’s innumerable benefits,” he said. “And what could have been better than to receive such education in one’s own language.”
