New From Bitvo

Bitcoin is more than digital gold

Bitcoin isn’t digital gold. But it does represent the ultimate hedge in an
unpredictable world.

The Bitcoin miracle highlights the value of regulation

Bitcoin may be unregulated, but the rise and evolution of crypto generally
shows us why regulation matters.

What is a stablecoin, and why do central bankers care?

Stablecoins are the next iteration of crypto, and the bankers aren’t exactly
happy about it.

February was a busy month for the Bitvo team and the crypto community! Thank you

to all that stopped by to say hi at the events we attended.
Pam and Shane attended the

University of Calgary’s

 TechFest for the first time this

year  and  were  impressed  by  the  packed  house  of  over  1,000  attendees,

including over 40 exhibitors from across the Alberta technology sector.


, the first Canadian dollar-backed stable coin designed for the mass market,

went live! Bitvo participated in the launch, allowing its customers to be some of the

first to gain access to this innovative product.
Bitvo sponsored the young professionals networking group

Hip Haus

, that was

founded to foster new professional relationships. Toronto-based team members

Andrei and Maggie were in attendance.



Alberta Blockchain Consortium

hosted its first monthly wine and cheese event of

the year and presented on Blockchain for Business 101. We are looking forward to

what else the movers and shakers at the ABC, one of Bitvo’s most valued corporate

partners, have in store for 2020!
