In August 2019, Cointelegraph en Español interviewed Ignacio Varese. On this occasion, he replied to the question of how he saw interest in blockchain technology in Uruguay:
“I see a very big development. I remember that at the beginning of my year 2016, there was hardly anyone who knew about it in order to consult or exchange knowledge. It was like I was alone in all of this. That is why we are pushing ourselves to start Meetups. Since this first meeting in early 2017 that we were ten people, I see an enormous development to this day. Currently, not every blockchain meetup drops from 30 participants, we have 80 and 100 participant meetups, which is a lot for Uruguay, and there are now several groups of meetups with different blockchain technologies. At the same time, the Crypto Bay Montevideo community was founded in September 2018, which was sponsored by Pablo Coirolo. Several sponsors have come together to promote Uruguay as a technology center and attract blockchain companies from abroad to install Uruguay. Today we already have several international blockchain companies that have been or are being installed. At the same time, blockchain courses were being taught in universities, and there have been several initiatives by the government that have made tremendous progress. However, acceptance by private companies is slower and steady. Some are starting to record it, others have it on the agenda at short notice. I really see this growth in such a short time and it is very rewarding. ”
Then he added:
“Uruguay as a country has impressive potential to be a leader in blockchain technology. On the one hand, Uruguay has been part of Digital 7 (D7) since February 2018, and D9 since November 2018, the group of digitally most advanced governments. The countries that make it up are, besides Uruguay: South Korea, Estonia, Israel, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Canada, Mexico and Portugal. The integration of this group helps the government to promote new technologies. This contributes to the entire ecosystem and drives it forward. On the other hand, Uruguay has been a leader in software production in Latin America for years, and it is a matter of time before more software companies choose this technology en masse to take advantage of opportunities not only in Uruguay, but worldwide. “.
