Algorand Network being used for Chivo


For anyone wondering, Chivo is the Bitcoin Payment App of El Salvador. Chivo registers 6,000-15,000 transactions per day and has reached more than 4 million users

And, it’s not the only thing South America is using Algo for!

Silvio Micali, the founder behind Algo has been on a recent trip to Argentina

“Honored to meet with the President of Uruguay, @LuisLacallePou! It’s amazing to see so much excitement in LatAm regarding adoption of advanced blockchain technology.”

His tweet ^

And it is reported that he was discussing “the possibilities of applying Algorand’s blockchain technology in different government functionalities”

Good to see ALGO being used for real world applications!
