An animal lover at heart, Ciara has a particular fondness for cats and currently has two pet cats that she adores. She regularly shares photos of her beloved Exotic Shorthair breed named Cookie on her official Twitter account (@Crypto_Ciara), demonstrating her softer side and her ability to connect with creatures of all shapes and sizes.

Ciara began her career by attending the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance in 2013. She then went on to complete an MBA in Financial Analysis from 2014-2016. In 2015, she joined Deloitte as an MBA summer associate, where she gained valuable experience in strategic consulting and financial analysis.

Prior to founding C² Ventures, Ciara held various executive positions across several multinational consulting companies, including Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte Consulting, and Ernst & Young. During this time, she advised banking and capital markets groups for 15 major banks and performed investment analytics to support clients with billions of dollars of AUM, including hedge funds, private equity firms, and investment management corporations.

In 2015, Ciara joined Huobi Global, a world-leading crypto exchange, where she eventually became the head of listings and blockchain investments. As Vice President of Huobi Group, she built the global business development and partnership department for the company and led global markets, institutional business unit, blockchain project listings, incubation and investments.

But, if the following tweet from Huobi is any indicator, it appears that Ciara Sun’s departure from the company was not amicable.

As a leading female leader in the blockchain space, Ciara is highly regarded and constantly invited to prominent global events, such as the World Economic Forum, Bloomberg Crypto Conference, GameFi Asia, Token2049 Singapore, EuroMoney, Forbes, and NFT.NYC. She is also a strong advocate of gender equality and has founded Women Who Crypto, an NGO dedicated to empowering and supporting female participation in the crypto space.

In February of 2022, Ciara launched the mint of her first collection of CiaraDAO NFTs in partnership with Web3 credential data network Galxe to promote her Womenwhocrypto initiative. The art pieces in this collection were created by 3D artist Per Jonsson and NFT artist Richard Jacobs.

With her extensive experience and success in both traditional finance and the blockchain industry, Ciara Sun is a prominent and influential figure in the world of finance, Gaming, and Web3 technologies, earning her the well-deserved title of “Female Asian Global Crypto Leader” among her peers.
