Buenos Aires hosts the first South-American Bitcoin conference in December

LaBITconf is the name of the first Bitcoin conference set to happen in Argentina, in December, to debate the influence of cryptocurrency in Latin America.

The event is being organized by the Fundación Bitcoin Argentina and will have important speakers like the Bitcoin entrepreneurs Erik Voorhees, Charlie Shrem (CEO of BitInstant) or Wence Casares (CEO of the Lemon Network), among many other guests. The main goal of LaBITconf, which will happen in December 7 and 8, is to discuss the future of Bitcoin and the opportunities generated by virtual currency in South America.

This will be the first Bitcoin conference happening in the southern hemisphere and directed to a hispanic audience, according to the organizers. The team behind the event says that while “most Latin American populations are heavily underbanked and remittance-dependent“, there’s also “exceptional smartphone penetration and technical expertise in Argentina, Chile and Brazil”, so cryptocurrency seems the perfect solution to the continent’s problems.

There’s not an official conference’s website yet, as the page is still being developed. So if you want to know more about the event you’ll have to check this document.
