What is DeFi, Crypto, and Web3 + Why Should We Care? (Presented by Zerion)

$0.00 USD

When people talk about “crypto” or “DeFi”, what they’re really referring to is the evolution of money from institutions, to platforms, to decentralized protocols – where a protocol is defined as “a set of rules or procedures that govern the transfer of data between two or more electronic devices”.

But what does that actually mean and how can we profit from it?

Join Claire Wasserman, the founder and Author of Ladies Get Paid, for a fireside with Rebecca Mqamelo, the former Head of Growth at Zerion, where we’ll address all your questions about the future of money, and how to make sure we’re not left behind.

About Rebecca Mqamelo

When I was 13, I packed off for girls’ boarding school where, amongst other things, I learned to be a lady and discovered my passion for communication. I represented South Africa on national teams for debating and public speaking, and my high school years consequently were a blur of debate boot camps and international oratory competitions. I went on to study economics and computational science at Minerva, a university that turns education on its head with flipped online classes, experiential learning and global travel. From Silicon Valley to Tokyo to rural Kenya – plus everywhere in between – I’m fascinated by new ways of doing money.

Inclusive, resilient and regenerative economies are possible – but we have to build them. I care about who builds them, and why. The tech industry is desperate for quiet leadership, slow thinking and feminine energy. These three things are guiding principles for how I live.

Today, I lead growth at Zerion, an investing app for decentralized finance. I also designed and led the world’s first randomized control trial on community currencies with Grassroots Economics. I explore decentralized governance models for real-world communities, organize projects aimed at bringing more women into crypto, and advise an insuretech startup in Ghana.
