Cryptocurrency Landscape in Brazil
Atlas Quantum is one of Brazil’s fastest growing cryptocurrency startups with more than 100 employees. At Bitcoin Wednesday, on 6 June, 2018, their Head of Investor Relations, Bruno Peroni will give us a short demo of the platform and a glimpse at the cryptocurrency landscape in this region. In Brazil more people are currently opening crypto trading accounts than investing in traditional securities.
Atlas Quantum was founded in 2015 by former stock exchange consultant Rodrigo Marques from his mother’s spare room. Today the startup manages more than $27 million in assets. As Bruno will show during his presentation, the service aims to build wealth through cryptocurrencies, to give consumers access to sophisticated investment strategies that were historically only accessible to institutions and high net worth individuals.
Bruno is a veteran of the startup and venture capital communities in Brazil. He was a co-founder and board member of WOW, one of the country’s first and most active startup accelerators, and Seente, a provider of entrepreneurship education in the region. He also served as a mentor for the Boomtown Accelerator and as Entrepreneur in Residence at the University of Colorado Boulder.
