In this episode, we interview Mauricio Di Bartolomeo, one of the co-founders of the Canadian crypto borrowing and lending platform Ledn.

Mauricio is a very charismatic figure in the crypto space and this was one of the best conversations we’ve had so far.

What we loved about Mauricio is that he has an amazing story that led him to create a product that solved his own problems.

We talk about Venezuela, Turkey and other countries that have experienced runaway inflation, and how Bitcoin fixes this.

Expect, of course, a deep dive on the Ledn platform, and especially the B2X features which is extremely interesting for those crypto hodlers who are extra bullish on Bitcoin and want to maximise their returns.

What growing up in Venezuela has taught me:

– "Bad Money" never dies, it just resets.

– Most people have no clue what causes inflation.

– Even less people get the concept of taxation by inflation.

– Empresarios can be demotivated and corrupted without fair competition rules.
