SatoShe – Bitcoin for women 


Having originally studied Psychology and Business Administration, I have always had a strong interest in societal relevant topics like (in)equality, financial literacy, macroeconomics, and psychological well-being. During and after my studies, I was able to gain insights into a globally operating bank from a HR perspective, quickly discovering the inefficiencies and hurdles that the traditional banking industry was facing by closely interacting with employees across different departments. After switching to the healthcare industry and working there during the global pandemic, it lay bare a lot of inefficient structures fueled by societal and political inequalities.

When I first heard about Bitcoin, I immediately sensed that there was something to it. Intrigued, I dove into this new world, and devoured every resource I could find, captivated by the transformative potential of this emerging technology. I listened to countless hours of podcasts, watched videos, read articles and newsletters, and tried to keep myself up to speed in this fast-paced space. I even had the honor of listening to Andreas Antonopoulos’ “Thoughts on the Future of Programmable Money” in Zurich in 2019. I realized the many opportunities for society that are being presented by building a new monetary system. And so, driven by an intrinsic motivation to learn and grow, I took the leap and pursued the Master’s degree in Blockchain and Digital Currencies at the beginning of 2022.

I sometimes felt inferior due to my lack of technical education, and I was eager to make up for it by fully dedicating myself to the course. The hard work paid off, and at our graduation ceremony in July 2023, as best master’s degree graduate from the School of Business, I had the honor of delivering a speech on behalf of my fellow students. I seized this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to talk about the significance of Bitcoin and blockchain technology.

Today, it is my genuine wish to contribute to the development and adoption of Bitcoin. Even though I do not necessarily want to highlight gender differences, women are still vastly underrepresented at conferences, meetups, and also in occupying blockchain-related jobs. Thus, I decided to host a meetup series specifically designed to create an inclusive and welcoming space for women to explore and engage with Bitcoin and blockchain technology. Since I strongly believe that this topic is relevant for every human in the world, we need to normalize the topic by talking about it.
