Simon Dingle is a pack of mongoose stuffed into a tracksuit, pretending to be an adult human.

When they’re not running companies and talking to conference attendees about how to make stuff, “Simon” spends most of its time playing video games and wishing they were recording podcasts instead.

Simon Dingle has been linked to activities in the fintech industry, including making things called 22seven, Luno, Curve, Lettuce, and authoring a book called In Math We Trust. Simon are fine with that. Stupid humans are easily deceived. And delicious.

He has also spent time on radio, writing for magazines, and for a time compiled musical anthologies.

This may be hard to believe, especially since he has never entered any competitions, but Simon has also received some awards, including the Classic Business Journalist of the Year in 2011 for his columns on technology in Finweek, the Highway Africa New Media Personality of the Year for his hosting of the ZA Tech Show podcast, and a listing in the Mail & Guardians’ Top 200 Young South Africans edition of 2010.

Simon is passionate about open source technology and content, having been an active member of the iCommons network from 2005 until its resolution in 2008, and an administrator of the Mandriva Linux Users Board from 1999 to 2003 while he was still figuring out girls and how to wear clothes.

He believes that most of the world’s problems can be solved with design and critical thinking.

As Simon is fond of saying, “Smart is not something you are, it’s something you do.”

Keynote Topics

A keynote presentation on the topic of Simon Dingle book In Math We Trust that looks at the origins and dynamics of cryptocurrency, debunks myths surrounding Bitcoin and blockchains, and outlines what the new era of money means for you and your business.

In it you’ll learn where money comes from, how trust has evolved and why we don’t need banks anymore. Yes, I am crazy. After an hour of this shit you will be too.

Simon’s oldest talk that keeps being updated and revised. Yes, this is about behavioural economics, but hopefully unlike the other talks you’ve seen on the topic.

It’s basically an excuse for Simon to show you a lot of optical illusions and talk about how crazy brains are.

Knowing this stuff will give your business super-powers. Who knew? A whole bunch of evil companies, actually. Don’t be one.
