“The new executive, who has more than a decade of experience in the world of financial technology, believes that Peru needs to know more about cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, as well as its benefits and possibilities.”, said El Comercio.
Carranza informs that the focus of his management will be to boost the market for cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin and ether, which is the second largest cryptocurrency in the world, in Peru. To do so, it is needed financial education and active participation in industry activities.
