Last month I went down to Central America to investigate the hyperinflation and starvation in Venezuela. During my time in Panama City, I spent several days meeting with entrepreneurs in the cryptocurrency space.
Right before my flight home, I was able to coordinate an interview with early Bitcoin adopters and entrepreneurs, Ira Miller and Cindy Zimmerman.
Ira co-founded Coinapult with Erik Voorhees, which they sold a couple years ago. Since then, Ira founded GitGuild, that’s building access ramps into cryptocurrencies and a trustless application framework to build decentralized applications.
Cindy is the founder of TigoCTM, which distributes crpytocurrency ATMs with a heavy focus on Latin America.
In this interview, you’ll hear all about:
Why Latin America is one of the fastest growing places on the planet for cryptocurrencies
How CTM’s (cryptocurrency teller machines) are helping Venezuelans overcome some of the challenges of hyperinflation
How Ira is building high-speed access to cryptocurrency exchanges
How Bitt raised over $5M and put the world’s first central bank on the blockchain
The future of cryptocurrency in Latin America
