The meeting also discussed central themes such as the portfolios, multi-sign, the relationship between the bitcoin and the applications of instant messaging and also the greater penetration of the currency in the countries with inflation in the high – the case of Brazil currently.
To Flavio Pripas, CEO of the exchange brazilian Bitinvest, one of the trends that justify the consolidation scenario bitcoin is the proliferation of services that make the technical part aside, and allow the user of a wallet of Bitcoins to connect directly with your bank account and make instant transfers between us dollars and the digital currency with a rate close to zero. “All this in a very safe way,” says the executive.
