Who is Juan en Cripto?
My Experience in the Cryptocurrency Industry
In 2017 I realized that there were few reliable resources to learn about Bitcoin and blockchain in Spanish. That is why I decided to start an educational YouTube channel to share my knowledge, experience, opinions, and news about Bitcoin, blockchain, DeFi and cryptocurrencies in Spanish.
Since 2017, I have worked with several organizations in the industry, such as the Government Blockchain Association, Swissborg AG, Rockchain Ltd (sponsor of the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange), and Bit2me.
I am currently advising cryptocurrency companies, entrepreneurs, and investors, and directing Revolución Bitcoin, the first high-quality documentary about Bitcoin in Spanish.
I also spend a good part of my time learning and teaching about Bitcoin, blockchain, DeFi, and cryptocurrencies in universities, corporate workshops, events, and through my YouTube channel "Juan en Cripto" and the podcasts "Tune into the Block" and "Dating Cripto".
I am the author of the course Fundamentos de la Tecnología Blockchain produced with Universidad Javeriana and edX, with more than 20,000 registered students.
From Traditional Finance to Decentralized Finance
While participating in the MassChallenge accelerator in Switzerland, I first read about Bitcoin on the book "Cryptocurrency: The Future of Money?". Since then, I have continued studying everything related to Bitcoin and the cryptocurrency industry.
I am passionate about the transformational power of Bitcoin, public blockchains, DeFi and decentralized systems. I am convinced of the potential of this technology to change the world.
I see a future where public blockchains will be present in our day-to-day lives and I am convinced that education plays an important role in this change of paradigm.
I don't think that everyone should know in detail the cryptography behind Bitcoin or the rules of the different consensus algorithms. However, I am convinced that people who have a general understanding of this technology will be able to adapt easier to the future and will have a competitive advantage.
For this reason, I am dedicated to educating, training and consulting people and organizations interested in learning about the exciting world of Bitcoin, public blockchains, DeFi and cryptocurrencies.
