[Apr 16th, 2019] This was their first meetup in Tijuana, and one of many in 2019 throughout LATAM. Bitso is a mexican digital exchange platform that allows its users to purchase and sell digital currencies among each other. With more than 600,000 users worldwide Bitso is LATAM’s leading digital currency exchange provider. They’re the only mobile app in Latin America that lets you check market trends and buy crypto at the same time.
The company started operations in April 2014 enabling access to competitive, cost-effective and inclusive financial services for individuals and small businesses in Mexico, providing easy-to-use access to the crypto ecosystem while continuously developing tools that bring crypto to everyday life.
Cryptocurrencies are much more than a speculative asset, they are a means of disruptive exchange that allows transfers from person to person without borders and with minimal commissions. At the meet up, attendees were explained in a practical way how to access the ecosystem of cryptocurrencies through Bitso app, each person was given $35 pesos in Bitcoin and were asked to buy beer and tortas de chilaquiles, using their phones.
Bitso’s strong emphasis on financial regulation and compliance, bank-grade payment integrations, proprietary technology and user-centered design, has positioned the company as the reference for digital currency operations in Mexico and LATAM.
