Despite the fact that cryptocurrencies and the world of Blockchain technology are developed exclusively online. The crypto community had become accustomed in recent years to attending face-to-face events in which to exchange advances and visions. A trend that was interrupted by the emergence of the Coronavirus. However, now the crypto Latino community will meet at the Blockchain Summit Latam with a virtual format.
The impact of the Coronavirus on the crypto community
Without a doubt, the crypto world has been one of the sectors least affected by the Coronavirus pandemic. And it is that, although indeed the virus born in China has impacted crypto companies, altering their work patterns, and forcing them to innovate in certain aspects of their business processes. This period of health emergency has also been one of the most productive for cryptocurrencies in general.
Thus, despite having to resort to teleworking, creativity has not stopped flowing in the crypto market. With large companies like Binance taking advantage of this period to launch dozens of new products, including debit cards, DeFi products, and even a new Blockchain. Reaching the point of having observed one of the biggest booms in the market in recent years, with the fever of decentralized finance.
Sadly, not all sectors of the crypto community have emerged unscathed from the pandemic. Well, since large physical meetings cannot be held, face-to-face events on cryptocurrencies have suffered. Paralyzing a sector that had experienced a great rise in recent years. What has forced events like the Blockchain Summit Latam to innovate.
