Olá pessoal!

For today’s episode I’m joined by Gino Matos, who is an OG of Brazil’s crypto media scene. He is currently a reporter for Crypto Briefing, with previous stints at CoinTelegraph Brasil and CriptoFacil. He is also the host of the Papo de Pelicano podcast.

Gino has been at the forefront of covering the Brazilian crypto market for over six years, witnessing its evolution from a niche interest to a mainstream phenomenon. In this captivating conversation, he pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of the crypto media landscape in Brazil.

Quick note that BCR is excited to be a media partner for Ethereum Rio ‘24, which is happening May 13-15 at Porto Maravalley. We’ll be discussing the EVM economy in Brazil, tokenization, DePIN, interoperability, fundraising in the bull market and more.

Key Themes from this episode:

  • The rise of crypto coverage in traditional Brazilian finance publications like Valor. What was once a novelty has now become a regular beat in Brazil’s largest media outlets, signaling the industry's growing legitimacy and mainstream acceptance

  • Gino's proudest journalistic moments covering crypto across Brazil, from breaking stories on Brazil's cryptocurrency tax reporting to uncovering the dynamics of the country's real-world asset tokenization market

  • Balancing technical, in-depth reporting with appetite for price movements and memecoins

  • The promises and harsh realities of ambassador programs for crypto projects operating in Latin America. Gino has done some incredible reporting that exposed abusive practices by crypto protocols toward their ambassadors in Latin America

  • Unique insights into Brazil's vibrant and rapidly growing crypto market

I really enjoyed this conversation with Gino and I hope you do as well. You can connect with him on Linkedin and X/Twitter.

Have a great week everyone,
