Every week, I share videos I come across that help enlighten and educate you on blockchain, cryptos, and the bigger picture.
This week I’m posting an update on the Lightning Network by Crypto Lark that goes into some good, basic nuts-and-bolts of what it is and how it functions, and a terrific interview that Ameer Rosic had regarding Venezuela. The interview covers pre-Chavez Venezuela, the changes that occurred, and what the circumstances they yielded today (as well as how cryptocurrencies play things.)
Enjoy, and be well Everyone.

Ameer Rosic: “Bitcoin, Venezuela and the Future of Freedom: Mauricio Di Bartolomeo”
Bitcoin, Venezuela and the Future of Freedom: Mauricio Di Bartolomeo
Guest: Mauricio Di Bartolomeo
Bio: Mauricio Di Bartolomeo is the Co-Founder & Chief Strategy Officer of Ledn Inc., a financial services company built for Bitcoin & digital assets. The company underwrote Canada’s first-ever Bitcoin-backed loan in 2018 and has since been lending to Bitcoin holders across Canada.
Mauricio has been involved in Bitcoin since 2014 – when in Venezuela he learned that friends were using it earn an income by mining it & protecting their wealth by converting it into a censorship-resistance currency. Now residing in Canada, he has been working on Bitcoin full-time since then, developing technology to make it easier to hold and use.
Mauricio understands the use-case for crypto-currencies in authoritarian regimes and the life-changing liberating effect that it can provide to its users. He is also well-versed in the limitations of the current solutions and what can be done to improve usage/adoption. Ledn, which has grown to a team of 10+ professionals, is tackling these issues by making Bitcoin easier to hold with products such as fiat-loans, cryptocurrency savings accounts and credit cards. Mauricio is also an active member of the Canadian Blockchain developer community with strong ties to professional working groups, contributing research and opinion pieces to active University PhD teams. He holds MBA and HBA degrees from the Richard Ivey School of Business.
