Sonya Kuhnel

Sonya Kuhnel has been interested in cryptocurrencies since late 2013 and one of the first women involved in the industry in South Africa. In 2013, she started a bitcoin payment company called Bitcoin Payments, a BitPay Affiliate partner, which allowed online merchants in South Africa to accept bitcoin. She realised how much education needed to happen around blockchain and crytocurrencies and launched Blockchain Academy and Blockchain Events which she now runs.
