From Traditional Finance to the Blockchain Industry

Juan Pablo Mejia Caicedo - Juan en Cripto

Who am I?

Industrial Engineer from Universidad de los Andes with an MBA from London Business School.

I worked at Credicorp Capital for over six years and gained significant experience in investment banking and the capital markets. I structured and successfully closed M&A deals, IPOs, corporate bonds, syndicated loans, and private equity transactions for close to USD 1 billion.

In 2013 I worked as a volunteer for Plan International in a mobile banking project in Zambia and in 2016 I cofounded Sportskred, an influencer marketing platform based in London.

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 not stopped studying everything related to Bitcoin, the Blockchain technology and crypto ecosystem.

My Experience in the Blockchain Industry

In November of 2017, I started working as a volunteer at Government Blockchain Association (GBA) and as a community manager at Swissborg AG, contributing to the success of its Initial Coin Offering (ICO) for USD 50 million.

In December of 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 and Cryptocurrencies in Spanish.

In March of 2018, I started working at Rockchain Ltd, advising projects raising funds and listing their regulated tokens in the Gibraltar Blockchain Exchange (GBX).

I am currently the GBA lead instructor in Europe and I am preparing the first Blockchain School for Management postgraduate program in English. I have given lectures about Bitcoin and Blockchain in different universities, including:

University College London

London Business School

Pontificia Universidad Javeriana

Barcelona School of Management

My Motivation

I am passionate about Bitcoin, Blockchain and decentralized systems.

Thanks to my work in the blockchain industry, I am convinced of the potential of this technology to change the world and create efficiencies in organizations.

I see a future where the Blockchain technology will be present in our day-to-day lives, but I also know that education is one of the main challenges for the adoption of this technology.

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, through Juan en Cripto I am dedicated to educating and training people interested in learning about the exciting world of Bitcoin, Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies.
