The blockchain boom is revealing new solutions to a wide range of problems, with impacts reaching far beyond the realms of finance. The companies working to uncover these innovative solutions and benefits are the pioneers of a revolutionary field. Their discoveries will pave the way for a new generation of crypto traders and investors. One such company is Fortaleza Digital Ltd., led by President and CEO Jean-Francois Amyot. “Crypto is the place to be right now,” he says. “Blockchain and DeFi are proving to be so much more useful than we could have anticipated. It’s such an exciting time for creative minds that love to innovate and find the next great solution.”
Fortaleza Digital Ltd. is Advancing Web3
Founded in September 2021, Fortaleza Digital Ltd. is a global fintech company that aims to advance the cryptocurrency and Web3 space. It provides a comprehensive Web3 infrastructure that includes decentralized exchanges for coins and NFTs, the Metaverse, and Fortaleza’s very own DeFi coin, FORTE. Fortaleza specializes in cryptocurrency (including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Doge, and more), trading, digital assets, and digital securities. Though the company primarily works in emerging Latin American and Caribbean markets (especially Panama and Mexico), the impact of its work is global in scope.
Working Towards Success
Amyot’s vision of success, which he works towards every day in his role as CEO of Fortaleza, is “operationalizing an idea into a profitable and scalable business that adds value to all stakeholders from shareholders, including employees, and the global community.” With that measure of success, Amyot is already well on his way to achieving his goal with Fortaleza Digital Ltd.
Amyot has faced his fair share of challenges on the road to success. Regulatory issues and run-ins with the SEC became major roadblocks in his career, but Amyot is glad to have learned from even the most difficult of his experiences. “I would say that bad judgment leads to experience, and experience leads to good judgment,” he says. “Everyone makes mistakes, but the important thing is that we learn from them.”
He believes that the struggles he’s faced have shaped his values and goals for the better. “Today, I am committed to being a positive and empowering leader for all stakeholders, including the global community,” he explains.
Fortaleza Digital Ltd.: Growing the Company and Community
DeFi is changing lives, but without the fintech firms working to bring us innovative applications, it wouldn’t be of much use to anyone. With Fortaleza Digital Ltd., J.F. Amyot aims to bring the benefits of crypto and DeFi to new audiences and communities internationally. “We hope that the benefits we create for emerging markets in Latin America and the Caribbean will bring success to new investors, stakeholders, and the global community,” says Amyot. He is working to take Fortaleza to the next level and turn the growing fintech firm into a billion-dollar brand.
