After rising to prominence as the underlying technology for various cryptocurrencies, blockchain first made its presence felt in the financial industry. At first, the hype claimed that blockchain boasted a number of clear wins, but over the next few years its impact remains muted at best. Among the factors that slow it down, while many see it as an opportunity, 55% of business leaders still consider it a security risk.

Determined to prove critics wrong, Susana Esteban is an expert in blockchain, digital assets, decentralized finance, non-fungible tokens, Web 3.0 and the metaverse, with extensive experience advising organizations in the areas of finance, retail, supply chain, healthcare, insurance and real estate sectors. She provides clients with strategic advice on how to design, implement, maintain and evaluate projects involving digital assets and develops practical solutions that can be operationalized enterprise-wide.
