Martha Bueno is a fully bilingual Miami native. Her family has over three generations in farming both in Cuba and in the United States. Martha also lived over six years in Venezuela. As such, Martha embraces and understands the multicultural diversity that sets South Florida apart from any other city in the U.S.
She is a graduate of Florida International University, where she earned a degree in psychology, with a minor in business administration.
On Thursday, February 3rd, the official account for the Bitcoin conference sent out a tweet announcing that the CEO of QvaPay, Erich José García Cruz was confirmed as a Bitcoin 2022 speaker.
I suspect the organizers of the Bitcoin Conference didn’t expect any backlash, and may have been caught off guard with the criticism from the Cuban community.
