Who is Juan en Cripto?
From Traditional Finance to Decentralized Finance
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.
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.
My Experience in the Cryptocurrency Industry
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, DeFi and cryptocurrencies in Spanish.
I am currently advising cryptocurrency companies, entrepreneurs and investors, leading GBA Madrid, presenting Bit2me Crypto News, and spending 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 podcast "Tune into the Block".
I am the author of the course Fundamentos de la Tecnología Blockchain produced with Universidad Javeriana and edX, with more than 7,500 registered students.
I am passionate about the transformational power of Bitcoin, public blockchains, DeFi and decentralized systems.
Thanks to my work in the cryptocurrency industry, 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, through Juan en Cripto 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.
