Santiago Siri—or santi.eth on Twitter—is building Universal Basic Income on Ethereum through Proof of Humanity, the project he co-founded. As a community leader in the Ethereum space, Santi comes from Argentina, a country with a rich history of culture, inflation, corruption, resilience, and now… crypto.
Recently touring Argentina with Vitalik, Santi reveals fascinating anecdotes from their travels and exemplifies how Argentina is ripe for a crypto revolution. An internet native country with a catastrophic economic past, Argentina is a perfect breeding ground for crypto innovation and adoption.
Santi tells the story of Argentina from the second half of the 20th century to today’s landscape, and explains why he’s optimistic that a history of corruption and capital control can blossom into a brighter society with the growth of crypto.
