Atlanta-based BitPay, a digital payments processor, has announced the opening of their Latin American headquarters in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Located at the ‘Bitcoin Embassy Buenos Aires’, the office is home to Fundación Bitcoin Argentina (Bitcoin Foundation Argentina) and a few other bitcoin-related companies.
At the office, BitPay has employed five software engineers and one business development manager, Alberto Liver Vega.
“As a technology enthusiast, I see Bitcoin as a big opportunity for companies to gain a competitive advantage,” he said. Vega, for the past 15 years, has been working on business and education agreements with top companies like Microsoft and Cisco. “BitPay is the perfect match and the natural platform for businesses to be able to use bitcoin easily and risk free in a voluntarily, open source and decentralized way.”
The five engineers: Matias Alejo Garcia, Manuel Aráoz, Juan Ignacio Sosa Lopez, Mario Colque, and Gustavo Maximiliano Cortez.
Best of luck to the team, who will be helping further the adoption of bitcoin in Latin America.
