Jutta Steiner: Career paths

Her first encounter with Bitcoin technology was in 2014 while she was doing her research about state-of-the-art encryption technology that could be used for sharing data.

Jutta was a mathematician by training, holding a PhD in Applied Mathematics. She worked as a management consultant before venturing into the world of cryptocurrencies.

She oversaw network security for the Ethereum Foundation between 2014 and 2016 assuming the role of Chief of Security prior to the launch of the public blockchain network in 2015.

This was when she came across the autonomous data network and blockchain-based platform “MaidSafe” from where she discovered Ethereum.

Jutta later built Parity technologies in 2015 to develop the technology that will become the foundation for the decentralized future of the web tagged as “Web 3.0”

She worked as the CEO of Parity Technologies and was tasked with spearheading a group of over 40 people in various tasks of both internal and external nature.

According to reports from a company insider, it was confirmed that Jutta Steiner had left the company Parity Technologies somewhere around 2021 and was due to be replaced by Gavin Wood, one of the co-founders of the Ethereum blockchain.

The current whereabouts of the crypto entrepreneur are largely unknown to most people in the crypto world but it seems like she is not too hard of a figure to contact looking at her presence on social media platforms like “X”.

She shows her excitement when talking about the newer token projects in the Bitcoin market like “OSCoin” which aims to provide funding and support for developers dealing with the creation of various open-source projects.

One of her concerns when looking at the potential of Bitcoin networks seems to be the problems that we will have to deal with if it is used with the wrong intentions.

The goal set for the protocol Pokadot, as described in her own words is to build the multi-chain framework that her company Parity is tasked with building. The goal is far from becoming a reality, but the potential for the technology and the ground for innovation is very vast.

We can formulate a lot of opinions and come to conclusions about her nature as a CEO of one the biggest and most impactful companies in the sphere of cryptocurrency through the number of interviews and talks she has given on a number of subjects including the cryptocurrency market, thoughts on leadership and even the role women working in the Cryptocurrency and blockchain market have to play.

In this interview, she also talked about having to convince the government to take measures regarding the adoption of blockchain technology and how she balances her life as a CEO of a multimillion-dollar company, as a mother, and as an influencer to younger generations of women.

Final Thoughts

Jutta Steiner is undoubtedly one of the most successful and influential figures in the field of cryptocurrency and technology. Her contributions as one of the more multifaceted individuals to the world must not be overlooked.
