I really believe that Blockchain and DLT technologies can help companies in go ahead in their digital transformation path by adding trust to their operations. From Telefónica, we provide a huge portfolio of solutions to support companies in the adoption of blockchain and aim the massive adoption of blockchain in enterprise ecosystems, including use cases for supply chain management, traceability, document certification, electronic evidences, tokenization and more. Hot topics like decentraliced identity, NFTs and, of course, the metaverse, are also part of the priorities we are developing and devoting resources. Before leading the Blockchain unit, I developed my career in various areas of innovation within Telefónica, highlighting milestones such as the launch of Wayra, the technology startup accelerator backed by Telefónica, in 2011. I hold several patents related to both telecommunications services and improvements in consensus mechanisms and interoperability of Blockchain networks. I hold degrees both in Telecommunications Engineering and Business Administration and specialisations in Innovation and Strategy from MIT Sloan and Harvard Business School.
