I discovered blockchain somewhat by accident.
The very first time that I heard about blockchain was actually at university over a decade ago. I was talking to a professor in his office, and there was this book on the table titled something like 'Blockchain in Business’. He took the book from the table, and said, ‘this is the next revolution of humanity’. From that moment, I was captivated.
I think blockchain is about freedom.
When I graduated from university, I had an opportunity to start as a Partner in a law firm working with blockchain companies in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Around the same time, and like so many other blockchain enthusiasts, I discovered the white paper of Bitcoin by Satoshi. Before even mentioning the technology, Satoshi had identified a use case in blockchain for banking, for finance, for society. For me, Blockchain harks back to the ideals of Athenian democracy. It’s about enabling everyone to participate and work together towards achieving common goals.
The financial system needs to evolve.
Around the globe, people are waking up to the myriad of problems within the current financial system, and blockchain technology offers solutions. Society, technology, and even nature are constantly evolving to become more efficient, so the acceleration of blockchain is almost inevitable. We are only in the infancy of adopting the technology and we have lots to do and build in the future, not only in terms of cryptocurrency but also in terms of using this technology wisely.
Caina is a very important part of my life.
Together, we are creating something very exciting. We are very proud of what we are delivering to the market, and we are very proud of the extraordinary community that has helped us along the way. Life moves very quickly, and I want to ensure that we’re making a difference. I’m really excited to bring Colb to the world; to show it to people, discuss it with people, make it better, and advance.
