Argentina Launches America’s Blockchain Association (ABA) For Educational Workshops
Distributed ledger technology has generated a movement in favor of technological advances from thousands of companies, corporations, industries, and government agencies, who hope to bring benefits to the market safely and optimally.
Located on the corporate campus “Ciudad Empresaria”, the ABA Foundation also seeks to generate synergy with the more than 35 international corporations, small and medium-sized local businesses that have settled in the area.
Germán Guismondi, one of the directors of the Association and in charge of external communications, pointed out that, as part of their initial phase, they are looking for alternatives to provide information on technology and to enter into strategic agreements.
Also, Guismondi emphasized the fact that, at the moment, they are not interested in delimiting the type of blockchain technology that they want to spread, rather they want to cover the entire spectrum of the blockchain in a generalized way to inform the population first.
“Now we are closing an agreement with the Government of Córdoba to open workshops in all the province about the introduction to this technology, possible use cases and applications. The Minister of Science and Technology is also interested; they want to educate its employees about how to apply blockchain to administrative processes or traceability in some economic activities.”
According to its working agenda, the team will be giving two public workshops about the technology and a private one which will be given to legislators. In this way, it will be possible to educate the political sphere about the benefits of embracing this technology.
Earlier this month, the Argentinian Central Bank (BCRA) asked for special books to have better information about how Blockchain technology works, how to embrace it for financial transactions and how it can affect the current financial system. Some of the books were ‘Mastering Bitcoin,’ written by Andreas Antonopoulos, or ‘Blockchain Basics A Non-Technical Introduction un 25 steps,’ written by Daniel Drescher.
