‘Bitcoin Day’ Proves Crypto Is Thriving in Argentina – “比特币日”证明密码在阿根廷繁荣

Bitcoin may not yet have “conquered” Argentina, but it’s certainly making in-roads.
比特币可能还没有被“征服”阿根廷,但它肯定是在修路。

That much was obvious last week at “Bitcoin Day” in Buenos Aires, where 500 attendees took part in an event aimed at serving a growing demand for information on the technology. Held in the heart of the city’s Almagro neighborhood, the conference served a reminder of how the country is still the leader in regional adoption, even if other developments in Latin America (like Venezuela’s possible petro cryptocurrency) may have stolen the spotlight of late.
很明显在上周的“布宜诺斯艾利斯比特币日”,在 500与会者参加一个活动旨在为对科技信息的需求越来越多。在该市举行 Almagro街区的心脏,会议曾提醒人们这个国家仍然在区域采用的领导者, 即使美国在拉丁美洲的其他发展(像委内瑞拉的佩特罗可能cryptocurrency)可能成为关注焦点的晚。

For example, Chile’s Guillermo Torrealba, CEO of the cryptocurrency services firm Buda, contrasted his efforts to achieve banking support in Argentina with experiences elsewhere. 
例如,智利的 Guillermo Torrealba,首席执行官布达cryptocurrency服务公司,对比他的努力,其他地方的经验实现阿根廷银行的支持。 

“There are even banks here that have executives that are exclusively dedicated to cryptocurrency companies,” Torrealba said. Compared with his home country, the situation, he said, is night and day.

“甚至有银行在这里,执行管理人员专门cryptocurrency公司,”托雷亚尔巴说。他说,与他的祖国相比,形势是不分白天和黑夜的。

“In Chile last week, all commercial banks have decided to close the accounts to all the cryptocurrency companies at the same time. They killed the industry,” he told CoinDesk.
上周在智利,各商业银行已决定关闭账户的所有cryptocurrency公司同时。他们杀了的行业,”他告诉CoinDesk。

Still, that’s not to say there isn’t optimism that other countries will follow in Argentina’s progressive footsteps.
然而,这并不是说其他国家会追随阿根廷进步的脚步,并不乐观。

Torrealba expects government or judicial intervention to ultimately end the blockade, asserting that countries like Peru are already pursuing a different strategy, seeking to observe and learn.
托雷亚尔巴预计,政府或司法干预最终结束封锁,认为像秘鲁这样的国家已经在实行不同的策略,试图观察和学习。

“We believe that it is not long before the traditional financial industry will come looking for us in order to begin to use our infrastructure,” he said.
他说:“我们相信,传统金融业不久将开始寻找我们,以便开始使用我们的基础设施。”。

But in Argentina, that might already be happening.
但在阿根廷,这种情况可能已经发生了。

Gonzalo Blousson, CEO of digital notary startup Signatura, for one, acknowledged progress is being made. Already, Argentina is registering official bulletins on the blockchain, a development he credits to a vibrant local community that has been evangelizing for the tech for years.
Gonzalo Blousson,一个数字公证启动Signatura,首席执行官,承认正在取得进展。阿根廷是已经注册官方公告在blockchain,发展他相信一个充满活力的社区已经宣传多年的技术。

He told CoinDesk:
他告诉CoinDesk:

“We used to call the companies to tell them what blockchain is about. Today they call us to improve their processes.”

“我们过去所称的公司告诉他们什么blockchain是。今天,他们呼吁我们改善他们的进程。”

That said, there was a significant amount of interest in another question – if and when the bitcoin price (down more than 60 percent on the year) would begin to rise again.
也就是说,在另一个问题上存在着相当大的兴趣——当比特币价格(同比下跌超过60%)时,何时又开始回升。

For this, a talk by Carlos Maslaton, head of treasury at Xapo, satisfied, with dialogue on how financial entities are wary of bitcoin because it “generates competition” in the financial markets.
为此,Carlos Maslaton说,财政部在头XAPO,满意,如何在金融机构对话担心比特币因为它产生竞争”在金融市场。

But he notably went on to urge banks to “open their minds a little,” suggesting that the crowd in attendance was reason enough that bitcoin and cryptocurrencies are, if nothing else, a new market for their services. (Maslaton said he wasn’t expecting such a strong turnout after the decrease of bitcoin price.)
但他显然还敦促银行“敞开自己心灵的一点,“这表明在考勤的人群是足够的理由,比特币和Cryptocurrencies,如果没有其他的事,为他们服务的一个新的市场。(Maslaton说 他没想到这样一个强大的投票率降低后,比特币的价格。)

Still, if Maslaton doesn’t see banks as the enemy, he believes bitcoin still has regional threats.
不过,如果maslaton没有看到银行为敌,他认为比特币仍具有区域性的威胁。

Asked by a Venezuelan about his opinion on the petro cryptocurrency, he went so far as to call it a “fraud.”
被问到关于他在委内瑞拉佩特罗cryptocurrency看来,他甚至称之为“欺诈”。

“No currency of these characteristics can be issued by a government. Precisely the idea of cryptocurrencies is that it they are not to be issued by a government,” he said, adding:
“没有这些特征的货币可以由政府发行。”。精确的cryptocurrencies认为他们不是政府发行的,”他说,加入:

“In the hands of Maduro and the criminals who run Venezuela, what else can I say…”

“在马杜罗手和罪犯跑委内瑞拉,我能说什么…”
