Months later, there was a second version in Bogotá, Colombia. In total we managed to impact more than 1,500 people and have more than 48 hours of didactic material on Blockchain technology, all available on our website, "said Cristóbal Pereira, organizer of Blockchain Summit Latam and CEO of mifutu.ro.
