10 Years Old Blockchain Entrepreneur Steals the Show at Tech-Summit in Bangkokby Fintechnews Singapore June 21, 2019
One of the ASEAN region’s youngest entrepreneurs, KIDLetCoin CEO and Co-Founder, 10 year old Kaede Takenaka, spoke about blockchain and cryptocurrencies at this year’s Techsauce Global Summit in Bangkok.
The entrepreneur spoke about educating young kids on smart currencies and new age education at the tech conference. Takenaka’s topic was: “What does the world look like for you in 10 years?”
Still a pupil, Takenaka attends school every day and spends her weekends helping kids learn about blockchain and how to manage their tokens. Takenaka was the youngest entrepreneur to take to the stage at this year’s event, alongside teen panelists.
Speaking about the importance of digital currencies into the future, KIDLetCoin CEO and Co-Founder, Kaede Takenaka said:
“As children we are told to prepare for life ahead. Digital currency allows financial freedom for everyone, even kids. Blockchain is distributed ledger, it’s like lego blocks. The world is changing very fast, and KIDLetCoin was designed to improve the way we educate young people.”
Talking about how the concept of a cryptocurrency app for children was developed and who inspires her, Takenaka added:
“It started when I was out with my mom and her friends in a restaurant. They were talking about adult stuff. They mentioned cryptocurrency and I said why can’t I make my own- so I did! My mom is my inspiration. I want parents to understand and let kids follow and take pride in their passion, after all that passion may be their job someday.”
