Conferences in the Bitcoin world are all too common now. After attending many in Europe, you start to see the same common faces and the same topics of discussion. Recently I have learned about AtenCoin a cryptocurrency that is everything that bitcoin is not. They have fully KYC/AML compliance built in. They are working directly with world governments. Now they are hosting their first conference dedicated to solely Aten Coin – http://www.atencoinconference.com/
Atencoin is not known well in bitcoin circles. At first glance, they appear to be no different than the thousands of other altcoins we have seen come and go. Upon further glance we see they have taken blockchain technology and created a coin to really shake things up. They offer all the benefits of quick transaction and settlement times as other cryptocurrencies, but the main difference is every coin can be identified as to holds it at any given time. Atencoin has full KYC/AML compliance which governments love, and the traditional bitcoin users dislike.
When asking founder Marcus Andrade about his KYC/AML policies he replies. “I love bitcoin and blockchain technology. Global governments want to know who is making these transactions. We decided to work directly with government officials to create a coin that satisfies their KYC/AML concerns.”
There have been thousands of altcoins created over the last 5 years. This is the first coin beside Bitcoin to have an official conference that we have heard about. How have you amassed so much success without being well known in the bitcoin world? “We have been working hard to create a coin we feel will be globally accepted by institutions. Blockchain technology is a world-changing technology with quick transaction and settlement times. In the global world ruled by technology, money needs to be updated. Everyone now in finance knows and understands the power of blockchain technology. We have simply created a coin that adheres to government rules and regulations.”
