Speaker:Caterina Rindi
Blockchain Consultant and Educator
Director, Corporate Social Responsibility and Impact

Caterina Rindi comes from a background in education and non-profits, having taught elementary school to bilingual students, and worked to support homeless families and disenfranchised communities in the United States.
Through her efforts developing more scalable opportunities and tapping existing resources via peer-to-peer technologies, she became involved in the bitcoin and blockchains ecosystem in late 2013. Caterina spent several years as an online community manager, rallying an international user base in Western and Eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, and the U.S.
With her focus on educating and introducing non-technical audiences to cryptocurrencies and the underlying blockchain protocol, Caterina works to decrease wealth disparities in the world through education and increased access to financial systems. She also aims to ensure that multiple and diverse perspectives and experiences are embedded into the development of these future technological tools.
Today, Caterina lends her expertise to fintech (financial technology) startups as well as other clients in industries ranging from P2P collaborative economies, consumer products, governance, and healthcare, and is helping organizations think about tapping the advantages of decentralized, transparent, secure databases and self- executing contracts.
She is also addressing the responsibility of our wealthiest citizens to care for the environment and their communities, and use their social impact positively, and has recently joined the team at Elefant as Director of Corporate Social Responsibility and Impact.
Caterina speaks four languages (three of them well), consults internationally, and travels frequently between the United States and Europe, where she has family.
She has a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Education from University of California at Davis.
Past speaking events and conferences include SXSW, Institute for the Future, Health 2.0, Inside Bitcoins, OuiShare Fest, and Stanford University.
