Zia Word

Founder of Crypto Queens


After exiting 途赞 - I now consult businesses as Crypto Queens. In Blockchain & Crypto since 2013. I have (moderately) exited two startups. My biggest drivers are moving the needle and impacting creative change - making a positive mark on the universe. My focus is on blockchain, decentralised/distributed web, fintech, Web 3 & DeFi. I absolutely believe we are in an extraordinary age where major world-changing companies are continuing to be built in every corner of the planet. I am determined to ensure I'm a part of that - lead, guide, build, inspire with measurable outcomes.

My strengths are in building companies on a global scale, understanding customers and markets (across geographies), leading teams, predicting the next big thing, strategy, marketing, growth, expansion, fundraising & building relationships. I possess a strong combination of IQ, EQ & AQ.

I have invaluable working knowledge of the cool, scary, exciting, sometimes daunting & invigorating experiences in startups - 13+ years across industries including travel, finance, blockchain, health, F&B, music & advertising in UK, Europe, US, Australia & China.

As well as strong startup DNA I have worked with tech giants & large corporates from Facebook to BMW. I was Co-Founder/CSO of blockchain ecosystem, chozun 途赞 . Straddled Marketing, Strategy and led rapid expansion - within 12 months and on a tight budget we were able to launch in 22 destinations globally, targeting the Chinese consumer.

I was lucky enough win the GBC Women Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 in China, have been a guest speaker at Conde Nast, Coinsbank Cruise, Catalyst Conference, Tech Summit London and RISE amongst others. I was voted one of the World's Top Ten Cryptocurrency Experts by The Cryptocurrency Magazine. I regularly speak on blockchain & crypto around the world.

As a multipotentialite - I think everything relates in seen and unseen ways allowing us to solve unique problems. I pride myself on learning as much as I can. Always.

Split my time between Australia/Asia & UK/Europe.

A lifelong vegetarian and longtime vegan & childhood activist. I am also interested in environmental, sustainable & social causes. I love discussing big, world defining problems and ways to solve them.

Quietly working on some of my own projects in stealth. Open to discussing roles at companies with opportunities for massive impact.

To add me as your connection, please send a quick introduction with background on how we met or why you wish to connect. I am available for media interviews or speaking engagements.
