Our guest this week is Alejandro De Le Torre, Vice President at Poolin. Alejandro and Poolin have launched taprootactivation.com to improve on the communication and transparency of the Taproot activation process. Alejandro has been in Bitcoin since 2014 when he founded SendChat, later acquired by wallet and data service Blocktrail, where Alejandro led BD until it was acquired by Bitmain. Inside of Bitmain, Alejandro cofounded BTC.com, and led their European office during the Segwit upgrade process. Now back with former BTC.com colleagues at Poolin, Alejandro leads their global Business Development. We talk about lessons learned in the Segwit and blocksize debates, bitcoin upgrade activations and taprootaxtivation.com specifically, operating in the mining pool space and more.
