This event is specifically intended
for crypto startups and nonprofit organizations, with the aim of spreading
cryptoculture throughout the continent. CEOs and blockchain experts will be

BITCONF (March /
Despite the similarity of the name, BITCONF has nothing to do with laBITconf. It’s a nationwide event that has been held since 2014 and that takes place every year in Brazil. According to its organizers, the last event had more than 1200 participants and more than 40 speakers, in addition to a series of courses and workshops for new and advanced users.
The VII BITCONF was scheduled
for 2019 but, due to a series of problems in the Brazilian market this year it
was finally transferred to São Paulo between 30 and 31 March 2020. Tickets are
already on sale on the event’s website.
Crypto events in
2020 without a defined date
In addition to events with a
confirmed date, the continent has several traditional events and meetings that do
not yet have an expected date.
The Latin American Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference – or laBITconf – is one of the most prestigious crypto events on the continental level. The conference is held annually since 2013, countries changing every year. It also offers its participants a bit of the local culture of each place at the shows and parties that take place alongside with the meeting.
The 2019 conference was held
in Montevideo from December 12 to 13. It introduced dozens of speakers, who
discussed a multitude of topics: blockchain architecture, trends of Latin
American and world markets, regulatory debates, etc. The 2020 BITconf has no
date yet, but the expectations are high!
Crypto Latin Fest
Initiated in 2018, the Crypto Latin Fest takes place in a relaxed atmosphere, gathering conferences, workshops and musical shows – all outdoors. Its first edition was held in Buenos Aires, and the second one in Bogotá. The event is sponsored by some of the main crypto communication and news networks on the continent. We are still waiting for information about the 2020 edition.
First held in September 2019 in the city of Córdoba, Argentina Cryptofest was held in a modern environment, with the support of the university and the local government. In addition to the conferences with prominent members of the local crypto community, the event also featured a hackathon full of electronic music.
BlockCrypto Conference is one of the most important events for the Brazilian crypto community. The objective of BlockCrypto is to bring the many startups in the blockchain area closer to the traditional market agents. In July 2019, the second edition of the event was held, with a great fair and a session dedicated to the women of blockchain and the public speakers from all over the planet.
CryptoConference is one of the
most traditional events of the Venezuelan crypto community, one of the most
important events of this type in Latin America. In 2019, the seventh edition of
the event was held, with the participation of entrepreneurs, developers and
specialists. We look forward to the eighth edition in 2020!
expands in Latin America
With this considerable number
of events for this year, one thing is clear: the Latin American crypto
community continues its consolidation process. For an individual user as well
as for a big investor, there are many opportunities for learning, fun and
business at these events.
