This week I’m trying out a new podcast format in which I bring on a guest to discuss and analyze the biggest crypto news developments in the region. This will be an ongoing experiment as I attempt to cover more crypto news across the Latam beyond Brazil.
This week, my guest is Andres Engler, who is the Latin America Editor at CoinDesk and is based in Argentina.
In this week’s episode we talk through the following news events and articles from the last 1-2 weeks:
