Argentina’s Bitcoin community is gearing up for a significant event this Saturday, June 10, as they plan to assemble a giant human Bitcoin symbol (₿) at the Campo Argentino de Polo in the city of Buenos Aires. The gathering, organized by NGO Bitcoin Argentina, marks the organization’s ten-year anniversary and aims to promote the advantages of Bitcoin and the blockchain ecosystem.
With the support of numerous companies and organizations in the sector, thousands of participants are expected to send a strong message about monetary and financial freedom. Jimena Vallone, the executive director of Bitcoin Argentina, expressed her excitement about the event, stating, “June 10 will be historic for the crypto community. For the first time, a giant human ‘₿’ will be assembled with thousands of people to show that in the face of a world in crisis, unstable, the crypto industry is stronger than ever.”
The event is open to the public and requires prior registration. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to support the organization by purchasing commemorative merchandise, such as orange umbrellas featuring the “₿” symbol. The highlight of the event will be an aerial photograph of the giant human “₿” taken by a drone.
The initiative has garnered significant interest within the community, with volunteers seemingly joining from far and wide to be part of the event. Vallone emphasized the unity and strength of the crypto ecosystem, stating, “The crypto ecosystem is more united and solid than ever, and on Saturday, we are going to give an account of that.”
