Quote of the week:

Pablo Orlando, founder and CEO of LatamEx and Founders Lab: “Latin America presents one of the most attractive markets for blockchain adoption and real use cases and Argentina is leading the way by serving as the market-opening gateway.’’

In case you missed it:

  • Brian Armstrong, CEO of United States cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase, has announced that the members of Neutrino “who previously worked at Hacking Team (despite the fact that they have no current affiliation with Hacking Team), will transition out of Coinbase”. Coinbase’ recent acquisition of blockchain analytics firm Neutrino quickly became controversial in the crypto community due to the fact that part of the Neutrino team had connections with Hacking Team. Reportedly, Hacking Team’s software was used by the law enforcement agencies and authoritarian regimes.
  • OKEx, the second largest cryptocurrency exchange by adjusted trade volume, listed Tron (TRX) on its customer-to-customer (C2C) trading platform. This decentralized trading platform enables users to trade directly with each other and OKEx previously started listing Ripple (XRP) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) on it.
  • The government of Argentina will invest in blockchain projects backed by Binance Labs. As announced, Argentina’s Ministry of Production and Labour will match investments of up to $50,000 in each project and will fund up to 10 blockchain projects each year over a four-year term.  
  • A committee of the Connecticut state legislature has proposed to legalize the use of smart contracts in business. To put it simply, firms that use smart contracts on a blockchain or distributed ledger will have equal rights with those that use more traditional methods to secure information in connection with a transaction.
