Will Latin America Be a Crypto Powerhouse? With Pablo Gonzalez

Will Latin America Be a Crypto Powerhouse? With Pablo Gonzalez

Pablo Gonzalez, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer of Bitso, discusses the inefficiencies of the legacy financial system within Latin America and how crypto is creating a more equitable and transparent alternative.


My guest today is Pablo Gonzalez, Co-Founder and Chief Design Officer of Bitso, the leading cryptocurrency exchange platform in Latin America boasting 1 million users. Before venturing into the crypto space, Pablo founded his own design and animation firm where he worked on high profile games like FIFA and Resident Evil. I found this conversation fascinating and think it will be essential for anyone who wants to understand the extent of the inefficiencies of the legacy financial markets or crypto helping bring the large global unbanked population into the financial system. Our conversation touches on how Bitso is helping their users send remittances payments and fight against unstable inflationary currencies by being the on ramp for stablecoin access, the current state of the local inefficient and corrupt legacy financial institutions, and why design is Crypto's biggest obstacle for adoption.
