Thesis Statement

<aside> ✨ **** The Foundation for the next generation of financial services will be the commoditization of payments & value Storage, financial Inclusion, digital goods & marketplaces and broad tokenization of real-world assets. I want to partner with early stage founders with a genuine ambitions to create a better, faster, cheaper, more open financial system to raise economic prosperity through a frictionless exchange of value in North & Latin America.


Personal Background

Being raised in a country with unparalleled natural beauty but sadly one that is also struggling to overcome extreme poverty. After years of ignoring the un-prosperous living standards of people in my country started to affect me.

I have always been fond of finding new avenues to tackle traditional problems. Working in some of the poorest corners of the world's most underdeveloped countries, the poor Village of el Rama in the eastern coast of Nicaragua or in Arbegona located south of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia.

I have found a universal similarity, the individuals that inhabit these areas have all been denied a choice and opportunity, whether it’s a lack of food, water, healthcare, education or financial services, leaving them powerless to make changes.
