On a special two-part episode of The Tatiana Show, Tatiana sits down with Gabriel Kurman from the Latin American Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference and also David Skarica, founder of the online newsletter Addicted to Profits from the island of Eleuthera, Bahamas.
First up is a chat with Gabriel Kurman from the Latin American Bitcoin and Blockchain Conference in Montevideo, Uruguay. Now in its 7th year, Tatiana and Gabriel talk about LABitConf’s evolution since its beginnings in 2013 and how the Bitcoin ecosystem has grown in the Latin American Community. The conference will be held December 12 and 13, 2019 with between 90 and 100 participants giving lectures and participating in panels.
A recent recon trip to Eleuthera, Bahamas for the upcoming Crypto Cares event is the setting for Tatiana’s conversation with David Skarica, the founder of the online newsletter Addicted to Profits.
A native Canadian and fellow liberty lover, David became interested in Libertarianism and precious metals at a young age after reading the works of Doug Casey and James Dale Davidson. He started attending investment conferences and wrote a book called Stock Market Panic. After investing in some junior mining companies, he moved to the Bahamas in 2005 and settled on the island of Eleuthera in 2013.
Get some insight into the island life and David’s thoughts on the market and whether we are in a bubble, and his opinions of politics in America and his homeland Canada.
He also gives us a sneak peak into his new venture which will be called Profits in Paradise, a mixture of travel and lifestyle on how to live and work from your dream location.
Tatiana and David provide some details for the upcoming Crypto-Cares event in Eleuthera January 5-12,2020. It will be a multimedia event with live music and a free educational workshop focusing on the challenges the Bahamas have faced due to the damage by Hurricane Dorian.
