From Money Laundering to Landian Metaverse Mirage: The Dubious Odyssey of Alejandro Castro

Alejandro Castro, previously known as Luis Alejandro Giralt Apestegui and a former convict for money laundering in New York, co-founded a metaverse called Landian in Colombia with Austin Javorsky.

Promised as a revolutionary virtual world, Landian abruptly disappeared, leaving hundreds of investors without their money and the promised digital environment.

This ironic twist sees Castro, transitioning from a financial criminal to a tech entrepreneur, only to preside over another dubious venture, sparking investigations and leaving investors facing substantial losses in a digital debacle.
