Sonya Kuhnel, Co-founder @SonyaKuhnel

Sonya Kuhnel comes from a web development background and has been interested in digital currencies since late 2013. She started a bitcoin payment company called Bitcoin Payments, a BitPay Affiliate partner, which allowed online merchants in South Africa to accept bitcoin as a payment method for goods and services. Sonya was one of the first women involved in the industry in South Africa.

She is the co-owner of Bitcoin Events, a company that hosts the Bitcoin & Blockchain Africa Conferences in Cape Town and Johannesburg. The conferences attract local and international venture capitalists, government delegates, top level executives from large financial institutions as well as experts in the industry.

She is also the co-organizer of the Bitcoin Cape Town Meetup Group, which has almost 400 members to date and holds its meetings at the Bandwidth Barn.

Sonya is passionate about disruptive technology, digital currencies and the blockchain technology. She feels there are a vast number of opportunities for using bitcoin and blockchain technology in both financial and non-financial industries and is therefore committed to educating people in South Africa on this exciting technology.

    Lorien Gamaroff, CEO Bankymoon

    Schalk Nolte, Founder Entersekt

    Alon Stern, Founder Slide

    Priya Mistry, Founder CommuScore
