The future of money is being shaped by the technologists of today. This is creating a radical reimagining of money, its value, and who controls it - and we all stand to benefit. But it also means that the movement is plagued by the same blind spots and design failings as the tech industry in general. Gracias aims to ensure that, as we move boldly into the crypto-future, we design with a wide, inclusive vision of the world.
Gracias is passionate about Bitcoin and what it has to offer, and wants to see it more evenly distributed amongst people who are non-technical or who come from underrepresented communities in tech and finance. We are mission-driven to drive crypto adoption and literacy in corners of the market that have been left out of this powerful movement of new wealth generation.
Gracias was founded by Deana Burke, who previously co-founded the marketing and innovation firm, Agency of Trillions. She is also a co-founder of CO, a cooperatively run co-working space in the Hudson Valley, where Gracias is headquartered.
Our driving philosophy: the best way to learn is by doing, and the best way of doing is usually the most fun.
