    • Hi FinTech World,

      Thank you for your comment.

      But we have to disagree with you:

      1/ Marcos Galperin is a pioneer and leader in e-commerce, not in FinTech properly. We agree that is set to become a leading player in Argentina but we see Marcos Galperin as more of a Tech influencer rather than pure FinTech.

      2/ Wences Casares has spent most of his career in Palo Alto so it is hard to include him in a list focusing on Argentina. Nevertheless, he is undoubtely a great mind with his amazing achievement at PayPal, Kiva or Lemon Wallet.

      What’s your bet? We like to be challenged…
