Carolina is attorney and PhD candidate of International Law at Korea University, she believes that cryptocurrencies are part of a bigger picture which reflects the movement of the contemporary society towards to a global financial system where the regulatory role of states is challenged and diminished. She thinks it is part of one-in-a-generation process reflecting the tensions within the traditional political organization of the world, whereby private/public and national/international actors converge to reshape a new financial global system. For this reason, for her, Bitcoin is an invaluable opportunity to acquire a transversal knowledge from insiders, technicians and practitioners about those new dynamics.
Originally from Colombia, and after having worked for several years as a legal adviser at Colombian presidential agency, Carolina has found in Korea and Asia the rebirth of her professional vocation. Currently, she is working into a research project on the multilateral legal framework concerning digital transaction platforms and blockchain, and the construction of feasible and reliable principles to regulate those matters; the field wherein she aims to place her contribution.
