Javier in a brief but consistent interview, tells that, cryptocurrencies are one of the most discussed topics nowadays. He emphasizes that this type of currencies (not fiduciary) constitute the present of the financial world.
With cryptocurrencies taking leaps and bounds in the market and, in light of all the talk about them, loads of myths have been created around. Not all cryptocurrencies are the same. Most of these have different advantages and disadvantages. The information available to be obtained from specialized sources is vital to ensure that you choose one that suits your needs.
If you are wondering if it is a good idea to invest in a cryptocurrency, the first thing to know is that it is not a fiat currency, which does not subject it to central bank monetary policies.
Ortiz de Artiñano argues that cryptocurrency trading is not just the future, it is the present. He strongly suggests to anyone who wants to know more about the crypto world “to start learning, to taking some time to understand the basics. First, you must understand what you are dealing with. Once you assimilate it, don’t read about it, open an account and start investing bit, because you learn from mistakes,” he says.
Javier distinguishes that each investor has a different profile, therefore the experience of another individual cannot be taken as a methodology to imitated.
After reflection on this matter, Ortiz de Artiñano points out the advantages that cryptocurrencies bring, focuses on the needs of companies to be able to maintain their cash flow. Currency controls in countries such as Venezuela or Argentina have hampered the ability of companies to carry out their commercial activities. Consequently, and because of governments’ management of foreign exchange reserves, companies have turned to cryptocurrencies to maintain cash flow. Rather than being stored, these financial assets can be used to acquire assets, pay the payroll, and settle payments to suppliers.
Cryptocurrencies are becoming more and more popular, and there are more than 10,000 cryptocurrencies available on the market. Ortiz says that this is great because it allows finding the ones that best suit the needs of each one while visualizing a promising future on the growth of the blockchain world.
As for GBM Ortiz de Artiñano explains that the GBM coin is a token backed by the Natural Capital of Atlantic forests, which provides a unique opportunity for investors to support and participate in the growth of a new class of assets. The idea of being an environmentalist and making money at the same time may seem like an oxymoron, but the world of green investing has changed dramatically in recent years.
The green economy is here to stay. Protecting forests and fighting deforestation are new ideas that have been rolled out in many countries.
The GBM coin is a cryptocurrency with a tangible asset behind it. Unlike other stablecoins, its fluctuating value will go hand in hand with the value of financial instruments that are used to tackle climate change.
