www.laBITconf.com (Latin American Bitcoin Conference) is perhaps the last BIG conference of the year and will be the first one simultaneously translated for Hispanic audience. Wisely hosted in Argentina, it attracted over 25 top notch speakers such as Jeff Garzik, Andreas Antonopoulos, Erik Voorhees, Tony Gallippi, Roger Veer, Marco Santori, Charlie Shrem and Tuur Demeester among others.


What can you expect form this conference

We have two mayor objectives; the first one, as one of the last conferences of the year it will summarize the best practices, and up to date information in all mayor Bitcoin aspects with most speakers adding a special approach to Latin America; and the second one, to be an excellent opportunity for locals and international attendees to network (we already have over 70 international attendees registered seeking for local opportunities). We might also have some business/projects announcements.

Also the conference is divided in two days, the first one more general and the second one full of local and international case studies. It will also have 6 lunch talks for specific topics realted with Trading, Altcoin, Minning or Security. Also a local study about Satoshi’s Steps.

Our main concern was not to add speakers to the main schedule based on sponsoring but based on topics we wanted to be discussed and speakers quality for assuring a high-level conference.


Bitcoin in Argentina

Bitcoin is gaining a good local adoption, and constant main media coverage given that we live at “the perfect storm” for Bitcoin to succeed: We have over 30% of yearly inflation (in the our 130 years of local currency we lost over 10 zeros); we suffer a hard restriction for buying foreign currencies, also for international money transfer, we even suffered a mayor “corralito” back in 2001 which blocked their holdings and diminished its value (similar to what Crete has recently suffered). So most people tend to prefer keep their savings in other currencies. BTW, it also has a high level of it and smartphone penetration.


Who is the Fundación Bitcoin Argentina

It’s a local foundation founded on March 2013 by three members but today it has over 97 self offered collaborators and hosted over 14 meetups with up to 150 attendees. Actually we have over 12 different projects such as laBITconf, Meetups, µMeetups, University Seminars, Press Management, Local Referrals Database, incuBITcoin, theBITclub, Teaching, Statistical Analysis, Legal Analysis, Bitcoin Fair, Seeding, Jobs Offers, and others, most of them yet to be coordinated.


I hope to see some of you locally.

This was one of the best run, if not the best run conference I have been to.  Congratulations bitcoinargentina team, you guys did an absolutely fantastic job and the conference was a first class event.  All conferences should be as well organized and well run as this one.  I had a great time and really enjoyed my time in Buenos Aires!


If you're searching these lines for a point, you've probably missed it.  There was never anything there in the first place.
