Huobi Group eyes possible Expansion in Argentina

Huobi Group Founder Leon Li recently met with senior Argentinian finance officials to discuss the role blockchain could play in that country’s future.

BEIJING, China – March 29, 2018 Huobi Group Founder & CEO Leon Li met with a delegation of senior Argentinian finance officials this week during their state visit to China. Li met with Felix Martin Soto, Deputy Minister of Finance and Javier Matias Mana, Director-General of the Bilateral External Finance Bureau to discuss Huobi’s possible expansion into the country as well as the role blockchain could play in Argentina’s economic development.

The visit to Huobi was an important stop during their visit to Beijing for higher level collaboration between Chinese and Argentine governments.

“It was a great honour to meet with Deputy Minister of Finance Soto and to explore with him Huobi’s advantages when it comes to blockchain technologies and applications,” Li said. “We hope to further strengthen our cooperation with the Argentine Ministry of Finance to achieve win-win development for both of us.”

“We would like to learn how to participate in cryptocurrency and blockchain industry from Huobi,” said Soto, who heads up Argentina’s international financial relations. “Through tokenization on Huobi’s platform, for example, Argentina’s plentiful agricultural, mineral and energy resources could be well financed by global investors.”

Soto believes Argentina should consider blockchain technology as a way to promote financial inclusion and reduce government costs. “At present, half of our population doesn’t have bank accounts. They practice mainly cash transactions and convert their savings into US dollars,” Soto said. “Through promoting cryptocurrency and blockchain technology and with Huobi’s assistance, we could reduce our demand for US dollars, which eventually would contribute to stabilizing the local market and attracting global investment.”

Huobi Group has expanded rapidly in recent years, opening up exchanges in areas like Japan, South Korea, Russia and – through its strategic partner Huobi (US) – the United States. It serves much of the rest of the world through Huobi Global, its flagship exchange platform.

Over the past few years, Argentina has been at the forefront of blockchain adoption in the South American region. Blockchain-centric start-ups have sprung up to serve the needs of the South American public and many Argentinians are increasingly investing in digital assets. The shift to cryptocurrency and blockchain is starting to manifest visible changes in Argentina. Earlier this year, for example, Bitcoin became an accepted payment method for busses, subways, trains and other forms of public transport and the country is also host to a growing number of crypto ATMs.

“With Huobi’s expertise in blockchain and cryptocurrency, Argentina can accelerate its pace to digital assets era,” Soto said.

比特币SV(BSV):以创纪录的水平扩容,并将保持继续

有些人认为,比特币上是不可能有大型区块的,然而比特币SV(BSV)已证实了这种观点是错误的。许多人对BSV技术有所畏惧就是因为它优于其他加密货币,所以他们试图通过个人观点出发的商业决策来干扰这个宏大的使命,但BSV现在正用先进的技术证明反对者的谬论:就在七月,BSV会将其区块上限提升至2GB(即2000兆字节!)。 身为nChain工程总监同时兼任比特币SV节点团队技术总监的史蒂夫•施德斯(Steve ...
