Wences founded Patagon, Latin America’s first comprehensive Internet financial services portal. This was sold to Banco Santander for $750 million. He is currently the founder and CEO of Xapo, a bitcoin wallet startup based in Palo Alto, California.
Recently, Wences moved to a 500,000-acre ranch in northern Patagonia where he currently lives with his wife and kids. I spent a morning with him while on assignment for Endeavor Global.
