Five years ago, I found myself in Buenos Aires, Argentina on a long-awaited vacation to the South American country. The country has a very European flavor with some 97% of its population having Euro roots. Specifically, there is a concentration of Italian and German surnames in that country. It was interesting to me as a native Central American how there were so many famous people from Argentina with Italian names (Manu Ginobili of NBA fame and Gabriela Sabatini from the world of tennis). This Italian heritage definitely comes into play in Argentine politics.

JK: Dark pools are really useful, because they allow people to buy and sell large amounts of Bitcoin Paper Wallet without moving the price. If you want to buy 1 million dollars worth of bitcoins, you’ll run the price up and that’s what’s happening now with the volatile prices. They eat up all the supplies and the price goes up. Dark pools allow you to do that, same for selling large amounts without running the price down. It’s a big advantage, next to an open book infrastructure.
