The MTBIT FORUM was developed by Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, money transfer expert and consultant and Andrew Ittleman, a Miami Attorney who represents companies and individuals in highly regulated sectors, such as the Money Transfer Industry. The forum is a chance for entrepreneurs, start-ups and project developers using blockchain-based protocols for remittances – such as Bitcoin, to meet, network and share the challenges being faced while at the same time discussing the realistic opportunities available in the marketplace.
Besides entrepreneurs, other experts of the industry will be invited to provide different perspectives and insights. In less than 8 hours you will walk away with valuable information, clear understanding and deep appreciation of this promising sector, knowledge that would take months, even years, to acquire.

General Subjects discussed at MTBIT
The potential that Bitcoin, Ripple, Stellar and other protocols have for money transfer & remittances is enormous. Companies are being built and will sooner or later become a vital part of new international money transfer systems that can include the traditional remittance companies if they learn, adapt, innovate and evolve.
The blockchain technology behind bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies can be a secure & cost-efficient digital money system that will bring a number of changes to the way we transfer value internationally. Whether Bitcoin is used by customers directly or it is used as a settlement mechanism, remittance transactions are taking place now. The Ripple Network is being implemented by Banks & Forex Companies in different geographies. All these innovations will become a reality in a not so distant future. Regulation is slowly making the ecosystem more dependable and safer. Compliance and KYC will be even easier than is today. That is why we at IMTC think that it is important to learn, to listen, to analyze and to create partnerships between the old and the new to find better ways to move forward as an industry.
MTBIT is the forum to discuss these innovations, to explore the possibilities and create bridges now. The future is now.
