E54 S2 – Spotlight: Lago Finance, Building Kadena’s First Stable Coin
SPONSORED EPISODE: In this episode, Ben and Kevin sit down with Lago Finance CEO Sergio Mello and CFO Matt Teeter to talk about their work in building the first Kadena native stable coin and Kadenas first bridge to the Ethereum network.
Who Is Matt Teeter?
CFO, Matt Teeter, is a self-professed tokenomics nerd. He got into crypto in 2015 with the launch of Ethereum. He would go on to drop out of his master’s program to found his first company, where he built an algorithmic trading platform that catered to both retail and institutions. Since then he has been involved with multiple crypto startups and ran an FX desk at a major financial institution.
Who is Sergio Mello?
CEO, Sergio Mello, is a generalist, an entrepreneur and a bit of an adrenaline junkie. He founded and exited companies in web1, web2 and web3. More specifically, he was pioneering VoIP infrastructure in Italy in the 2000’s, he pioneered the “data is the new oil” movement by connecting social media API to the travel industry in the early 2010’s and he has been in crypto since his friend Ian from Tasmania sent him bitcoin in 2014.
