Great Argentina news!
« on: December 01, 2014, 08:26:58 PM »

I see we have some guys working out of the Bitcoin Embassy in Argentina who are developing a BitUSD mobile wallet  :) This is fantastic news imo!

https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=11902.msg156761#msg156761

Dear community,

My name is Matias Romeo and together with Pablo Tutino we are both cofounders of Latincoin.com.

We are based in Buenos Aires (Argentina) working from the "Bitcoin Center Buenos Aires" (aka: Bitcoin Embassy)

As many of you know the current situation in our country is one of a big opportunity for bitUSD, and seeing that the mobile wallet for bitshares is lagging behind we decided to do our contribution and started the development of a mobile bitasset wallet.

We think that Argentina has a lot of potential for the daily use of bitUSD and we have a lot of efforts going on in that sense that hope to release soon.



Check out this video I found which shows some of the Bitcoin businesses that are all co-located there & makes the case for Bitcoin in Argentina.

http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=God__fg2kwg

Now multiply that Bitcoin potential by infinity, take it to the depths of forever and you will still have barely a glimpse of what we're talking about with BitUSD there imo. (To paraphrase Joe Black.)

This is really great news. Happy to see people are beginning to discover the potential of bitUSD on their own!

I think in the long term it might be better for us to have a single "flagship" mobile wallet with localization whose development is funded by delegates, instead of having many independent and noncollaborating projects spread all over. But until there's a strong organizational system in place for coordinating that, it's great to see these guys working on a wallet.

edit: damn it looks sexy, I hope they get delegate funding asap

Its amazing what a difference a month makes.

A month ago these boards were nothing but people being upset about the changes and fighting each other.

Now it is all these cool projects being started and positive developments.

In a few years it's going to be full of early adopters bragging about the cool mansions they bought with their new found riches.

Indeed.  This is my primary reason for posting things like the superBULL thread. 

In a few years, I want people to be able to go: "holy crap, look at those early adopters who were worried about whether the price would go from 2 cents to 1 or 5, and now its <crazy high price>!" :)
