Fortaleza Digital Ltd. Aims to Breathe New Life into Crypto and Web3


Blockchain has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of the way we live, work, and interact. According to Fortaleza Digital Ltd. CEO J.F. Amyot, “We have only just begun to uncover the myriad applications of this incredible technology, and it’s already changing the way we think about finance, commerce, digital property, and so much more.” He and the rest of the Fortaleza Digital team are excited to be working in such a fascinating and dynamic industry. “Crypto is truly an amazing space to be in, and though it isn’t always easy, I wouldn’t trade it for the world,” he remarked. With a number of new developments in the works, the team is working to realize the full potential of DeFi and Web3.

Fortaleza Digital Ltd.: Creating a Global Fintech Phenomenon

Founded in September 2021 and led by renowned financier Jean-Francois Amyot, 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.

Charting a New Course to 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. is Breaking New Ground in DeFi

Fortaleza Digital Ltd. hopes to make a name for itself by breaking new ground in the DeFi and Web3 space. With their unique exchange, new mobile app, and the FORTE coin, they hope to establish a framework for innovation, advancement, and mutual benefit. “We’re just excited to be making progress in such a fast-growing and important field,” says Amyot of the team’s accomplishments, adding that “This is just the beginning. We have a lot of exciting plans for the Fortaleza Digital family.” With their unique approach to DeFi innovation, they aim to conquer the growing international crypto space.
