Camila Russo is a financial journalist with experience across continents and asset classes.

Her focus has been on the crazier/more volatile corners of the market.

Camila wrote the The Infinite Machine, the first book on the history of Ethereum, which was published by HarperCollins in July, 2020.

She is also the founder and CEO of The Defiant, an information platform focusing on decentralized finance.

During her eight years at Bloomberg Camila covered the Argentine market (bonds, stocks, FX) for 4+ years based in Buenos Aires; wrote about European stocks with a focus on Southern Europe in Madrid; analysed macro emerging markets moves for the Markets Live blog in New York; and was one of the most prolific and dedicated cryptocurrency reporters.

Previous to Bloomberg she wrote international news for Chile’s largest national newspaper, El Mercurio.

Camila has moderated and spoken at some of the most influential cryptocurrency conferences, done multiple TV and radio appearances, and was awarded first place for online journalism by Brazil’s exchange operator BM&F Bovespa earlier in her career.

She has a Master of Science degree from Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism and a bachelor’s degree from Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile.

The Infinite Machine

Written with the verve of such works as The Big Short, The History of the Future, and The Spider Network, here is the fascinating, true story of the rise of Ethereum, the second-biggest digital asset in the world, the growth of cryptocurrency, and the future of the internet as we know it.

Everyone has heard of Bitcoin, but few know about the second largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, which has been heralded as the "next internet."

The story of Ethereum begins with Vitalik Buterin, a supremely gifted nineteen-year-old autodidact who saw the promise of blockchain when the technology was in its earliest stages.

He convinced a crack group of coders to join him in his quest to make a super-charged, global computer.

The Infinite Machine introduces Vitalik’s ingenious idea and unfolds Ethereum’s chaotic beginnings.

It then explores the brilliant innovation and reckless greed the platform―an infinitely adaptable foundation for experimentation and new applications―has unleashed and the consequences that resulted as the frenzy surrounding it grew: increased regulatory scrutiny, incipient Wall Street interest, and the founding team’s effort to get the Ethereum platform to scale so it can eventually be accessible to the masses.

Financial journalist and cryptocurrency expert Camila Russo details the wild and often hapless adventures of a team of hippy-anarchists, reluctantly led by an ambivalent visionary, and lays out how this new foundation for the internet will spur both transformation and fraud―turning some into millionaires and others into felons―and revolutionize our ideas about money.
