Now in its eighth year, the “Latin American Conference on Bitcoin and Blockchain” (LABITCONF), is the oldest and most relevant blockchain event in the region. Year after year, more than 90 international speakers share their knowledge with participants from different sectors with entrepreneurs and investors from Oceania, Asia and Europe.
This non-profit event is organized annually in several Latin American countries, with the aim of making visible the different trajectories and initiatives of local projects that explore decentralized technologies.
LABITCONF has positioned itself as the most important Latin American event for the crypto adopter ecosystem. This region has experienced frequent currency crises and abusive capital controls, which is why these countries have been more open to rethinking new alternatives and adopting decentralized technologies through blockchain solutions. LABITCONF has fostered entrepreneurship, developing a network of blockchain communities from different Latin American countries which has led to the launch of many large-scale projects.
