One of the key figures of German fintech, Maria Pennanen, CEO of German crypto data insights startup Santiment Inc., thinks that cryptocurrency, like the Internet in its time, is going to change the world. Speaking last week at Calcalist’s WeTechBerlin conference, Pennanen said that while many are disappointed with the state of the crypto market today, and many refer to it as a bubble, she believes it will become mainstream.
