Prior to joining the team building the world’s most intuitive DeFi interface, Rebecca worked on blockchain-based currency development programmes in Kenya. With a background in Economics and Data Science, her focus is on redesigning money for the 21st century – which means leveraging alternative currencies to facilitate more inclusive, resilient and sustainable local economies. She believes we ought to recognize the “fintech revolution” for what it is: a nice UI update to the same financial operating system. It’s time to shift gears with decentralized finance.
Rebecca has lived and worked in nine countries on all continents and is committed to bringing African talent to global economic challenges. When she isn’t working with the coolest DeFi team in the world, she’s writing on politics and culture for popular South African publications, mentoring African startups, or sharing her experiences at www.rebeccamqamelo.com
