The past 23rd of August, the first IOTA Meetup in Bariloche (a city at the south of Argentina) occurred. This event was hosted by Tangle Patagonia (Gabriela Jara) and took place at Fab Lab Bariloche where near 30 people arrived to listen about IOTA.
Let’s make a brief review about it.
Bariloche is a touristic city, famous for its mountains and ski centers, and despite this was a quite snow free winter, the day prior to the meetup was a snowy day and I was afraid that the meetup would have to be postponed. Luckily it stopped snowing and by 6pm the attendees started arriving.
It was a very exciting time, many of the attendees had heard about Bitcoin before but barely knew about IOTA. They were all very interested about the unique characteristics of IOTA, so I explained them, we went over topics like what DLT’s are, what are the main differences between a Blockchain and the Tangle, IOTA as the backbone for Internet of Things and we also went through some real use cases.
The audience was composed by developers, programmers, nocoiners and people who had a few cryptos so it was a really great and varied group. They were very curious and asked lots of things so we promised to meet up again in the future because although the meetup lasted one and a half hour, the time flew by.
