Why Latin America
Latin America is a growing economy, beyond being heavily unbanked, it has great talent in the development of Blockchain technologies. By suffering frequent monetary crises and abusive currency controls, the region has been well opened to adopt the efficiency and transparency that Blockchain offers.
Uruguay is strategically placed between Argentina and Brazil, the two most active crypto communities in Latin America. The country is providing tax exemptions to startups and it is a financial hub for the region.
