Who’s Who In Crypto: Gabriella Kusz, Chief Executive Officer at Global Digital Asset and Cryptocurrency AssociationRenata Szkoda
What does crypto mean to you and what drew you to it?
Crypto means transformation and evolution of the financial sector. As a professional who has spent a significant portion of her career ushering in financial sector transformation my ah-ha moment happened when I began to see the broader impacts of the industry as a first wave of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. In my previous roles, I have supported countries in transitioning towards free-market economies or in diversifying their economies away from petrochemical industry reliance or in advancing transparency and accountability post-Arab Spring. Crypto is the tip of the iceberg and ensuring inclusive, participatory and representative engagement in our global financial future will require supporting broad financial sector transformation. What drew me to crypto was the opportunity to lend my global lessons learned, experience in capacity building and enhancing shared prosperity in an emerging and more impactful way.
