Now in its 8th year, the “Latin America Bitcoin & Blockchain Conference” (LABITCONF), is the oldest and most relevant blockchain event in the region. Year after year 90+ international speakers share their knowledge with attendees from different industries with entrepreneurs and investors from Oceania, Asia and Europe.
This not-for-profit event is organized annually in various Latin American countries, with the goal of making visible the trajectories and initiatives of various local projects exploring devolved technologies.
LABITCONF has positioned itself as the leading event in Latin America for the crypto adoption ecosystem. This region has suffered from frequent currency crises and aggressive 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, growing a network of blockchain communities from several countries in Latin America that has led to the initiation of many large-scale projects.
