Coming up this week on the Money Movement we'll be talking about the rapidly emerging use of stablecoins for international payments. While stablecoins were 'rooted' and 'bootstrapped' in the crypto trading markets, their inherent utility value as digital dollars on a global internet has been giving rise to their use in international payments.
We'll be joined by market leaders in Asia and Latin America who have been witnessing first hand the emerging shift to stablecoins for global payments, including Darius Sit, the Co-Founder & Managing Partner at QCP Capital, a leading trading firm in Asia, Fabricio Tota, Director at Mercado Bitcoin, the leading digital currency exchange in Brazil, and Sebastian Serrano, Founder & CEO of Ripio, another fast growing Latin American digital currency firm.
With intense global pressure on currencies and governments around the world, the power of a digital dollar is taking hold, and we'll talk about the power and drivers behind the shift into everyday people and businesses adopting stablecoins for payments and settlement.
