Quinn Gibson is the founder of Mid Earth Crypto and a marketing consultant in the gaming dApp space for mass adoption and blockchain interactions. He has previously worked as the Brand Ambassador for Tronbet and as the Latin Rep for Team McAfee. Quinn studied International Business and Portuguese, settling in Ecuador, where cross border payment issues spurred his interest in cryptocurrency solutions.

Quinn joins us today to discuss the turmoil in Hong Kong and the considerable effect it has on Bitcoin. We discuss the origins of Hong Kong protests, China’s project funding in South America, and how state media controls the narrative. Quinn also highlights why Bitcoin buy volumes from Hong Kong are going up and how these protests are just the beginning of the troubles.
“The rush from HK Dollars into Bitcoin is only evident in what is happening. The buying volume has gone up from two million dollars to twelve million dollars in the last day.” - Quinn Gibson
