GM! My name is Qiyi (chi-yi), also go by Sharon. I grew up in Guiyang (China). I came from information management and data science background. I graduated from Syracuse University's Information Management with a master's degree, and moved to New York in 2019.
Currently, I am a growth marketing associate at Bitstamp, the longest-running crypto exchange found in 2011. Before joining Bitstamp, I ran user growth at Chowbus, an Asian food delivery platform. I also freelanced at McCann as a web analyst for big pharmaceutical clients. However, my first job out of college was doing business development in a contraction company in Ghana. One of the main jobs was to negotiate with the Ghana government to prioritize and issue the outstanding payments.
I am also one of the founding members of Women Who Crypto, a global female-led community that focus on increasing the diversity of the crypto industry and empowering women to participate.
