The meeting will be organized by Decrypto and Alberto Vega, CEO of Bithan, and Efraín Barraza, Operations Manager of Athena Bitcoin in Argentina will be present. Both work together in writing the project. Interested parties can register here.
Especially The initiative is to debate the “Together for Change” project by Argentine MP Ignacio Torres, which has not yet been officially presented at the Argentine Nation’s Congress.
Cointelegraph en Español recently spoke to Barraza and Vega. Both noted that they were interested in having conversations and debates about blockchain technology and cryptocurrencies in Argentinaso as not to descend and take into account that other countries are already discussing these issues.
Efraín Barraza stated: “We understand that in order for the ecosystem to grow, it cannot be outside the law.” And he emphasized the importance of users and investors having some protection.
On the other hand, Alberto Vega emphasized: “It is important to consider where Argentina stands and how we, as a pioneer country in the field of cryptography, can achieve advantages.”
Cointelegraph en Español also interviewed Deputy Torres, who emphasized, among other things, “Argentina’s crypto ecosystem is one of the most developed in the world, but unlike other markets, we have no active policy in this regard. It is for this reason that we have received concerns from the industry itself about creating a legal framework that favors a development program with greater investment and job creation. “
In addition, he noted: “The idea is that the same sector is part of the project development. That is why we already had an initial meeting that was attended by more than 35 representatives from pioneering companies in the region. During the meeting we exchanged points of view and organized an agenda to continue working on an article that does not impose restrictions that affect their work. We know that the word regulation has a negative connotation because it is associated with a “limiting” activity. On the contrary, it is about promoting safe and predictable development for users, intermediaries and suppliers. This is a trend that is occurring in many countries and it is inevitable that a legal framework will be proposed in Argentina in order for the cryptocurrency market to grow and be safe. “
