Who is Juan en Cripto?
From Traditional Finance to the Blockchain Industry
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, the Blockchain technology and the cryptocurrency industry.
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.
I am currently the director of GBA Madrid and am leading the first Blockchain School for Management postgraduate program in English. I have given conferences and lectures about Bitcoin and Blockchain in different universities, including:
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.
