About the Episode

The inflation rate in Argentina is currently at 55% per year. It's not a surprise that bitcoin has a strong following and usage there.

A talented developer and thinker, Santiago is the founder of Democracy Earth.

He's someone that gets a ring from political activists in Chile and Mexico asking him for advice on how to organize digitally. He declined to work with the political party in Mexico due to ethical reasons.

He also started a political party, the Net Party, in 2012 in Argentina. I'll leave it there. Listen to the episode.
