Bogotá, D.C, October 11, 2022. After competing between capitals from many other countries in the region that already have a strengthened market in the crypto industry, as is the case in Argentina, the sixth edition of DEVCON, the event of stature The world’s most important world for the technology industry in the cryptocurrency and blockchain segment, arrives in Bogota. During this week, the Colombian capital will receive thousands of fans, users and builders of the Etherium ecosystem, the technology that drives the ‘ether’ (ETH) cryptocurrency.  

Definitely, the country’s capital continues to be a nest of opportunities for investment and growth in the technology industry. In this regard, Isabella Muñoz, executive director of Invest in Bogota comments, “Bogotá, as the first Latin American city to host DEVCON, speaks of an imminent economic recovery of the city in the events and meetings sector. In addition, our city is consolidated at the national level as the capital of entrepreneurship and the development of the country’s IT industry, hosting 65.5% of the companies in this sector. This data does not surprise us, since 35.4% of the talent in computer science and related fields available throughout Colombia is also concentrated in Bogotá.”  

This event that brings together enthusiasts from the world of crypto currencies can attract between 5,000 and 10,000 foreigners to the city and promises to make an intensive introduction for new Ethereum explorers, as well as form a global meeting for those who are already part of their ecosystem and trade with ‘ETH’.  

For this, the stage will be the Ágora Convention Center in Bogotá, a space with the perfect infrastructure to carry out talks, panels, workshops, lightning talks and learning sessions that attendees can join freely. Danny Ryan, Ana Miyaguchi, Brewster Kahle, and Etherium founder Vitalik Buterin are the keynote speakers.  

“Being on the radar of organizations with the relevance of Etherium reaffirms the reasons why the most recent Destination Performance Index of the International Congress and Convention Association (ICCA) named Colombia as the South American leader in reactivating post-pandemic events and meetings in the city. “ Concludes Muñoz.  

The Developers Conference (DEVCON) will be held from October 11 to 14 and expects to welcome blockchain system builders of all levels.
