In a wide stride towards its goal of promoting the adoption of blockchain technology in Latin America and the Carribean, LACChain has announced the addition of Block.one to the LACChain Global Alliance.
LACChain, launched in 2018, is the brainchild of the International Development Bank (IDB Lab), and already has 40 partners in 12 countries, which includes long standing EOS block producers EOS Costa Rice and EOS Argentina.
In the Memorandum of Understanding cementing the partnership, Block.one is granted the liberty to contribute its quota to the development of the project either by cash or by kind, or maybe both. Marcos Allende, the LACChain Technical Lead, had this to say on the partnership:
“We are very glad to incorporate Block.one as one of the LACChain allies or partners, because Block.one is the largest entity in the EOS world,”
“During the past months, we have attracted and incorporated the EOS community, and within the next few weeks we will release the LACChain EOSIO network.”
“New partners can contribute in kind or in cash or both. Over the collaboration there might be both types of contribution. We try to make sure that every new entity joining the LACChain Alliance has something different to contribute…”
Block.one’s VP of Blockchain Engineering, Bart Wyatt, commented:
“Our goal at Block.one is to change how the world works so that it is more transparent, trustworthy and efficient, which is why we’re excited to join the LACChain alliance,”
“In this technical advisory role, we look forward to helping LACChain drive adoption and awareness of the EOSIO platform through educational programs, deeper technical collaboration and community engagement initiatives.”
Definitely exciting times for the blockchain community in Latin America and the Carribean and we look forward to their upcoming LACChain EOSIO network release.
