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 most recently announced the world’s first bitcoin-backed mortgage. It also offers a full suite of lending, savings and trading products, providing financial services to digital asset holders in over 130 countries. Mauricio has been involved in Bitcoin since 2014 – when in Venezuela he learned that his family and friends were using it to 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. Ledn powers savings and lending products that unlock the potential of digital assets.
Mauricio is a graduate of the HBA & MBA programs at the Richard Ivey School of Business and authors Ledn’s weekly The Bitcoin Economic Calendar, and Ledn’s Weekly Hodl research newsletter, which goes out to over 100,000 subscribers weekly.
