This time LATOKEN BEF USA 2019 adds the discussions on Initial Exchange Offerings, secondary markets for Startups, Private Equity, and VC funds.

It's been really enriching to me. I think we can hold a similar conference in Mexico, because all the knowledge that was here, all the discussions that happened here would be fantastic to impact Mexico's market, to bring in this new culture of forward-thinking.

Since the beginning of the year, Bitcoin has grown faster than traditional market assets, including oil, technology companies, real estate and gold. This conclusion was made by Binance Research in the new study "What Bear Market?"

Since the beginning of the year, the price of Bitcoin has grown by more than 50%, while oil - by 33%, tech stocks - by 18%. The price of gold in five months slipped by 1%.

Recently, however, some factors have emerged that may put pressure on the price of Bitcoin. Thus, the recovery of BTC growth slowed down somewhat amid news of a hacker attack on the popular Binance exchange itself, as a result of which 7,000 BTC ($ 40.5 million) were stolen.

Another potentially negative factor for the price of Bitcoin could be the upcoming IEO of the Bitfinex exchange, where Tether stablecoins will be used to purchase LEO tokens for $ 1 billion. It can lead to situation when large players can may actively sell BTC.
