About Us

Digital Natives Academy, a non-profit, was established in 2014 to help spark imaginations and help transform lifes.

DNA’s vision is to inspire the next generation of digital leaders. We do this through three pou; coding, animation and esports. We take a Te Ao Māori worldview and are open to all.

Our goal is to support rangatahi who don’t have access to technology. We do this to inspire them to become makers and innovators of technology, rather than users and consumers of it.  

Over the years, DNA has become more than a platform for skill acquisition and career pathways, it’s become a sanctuary from an often cold, uncaring world where the outliers of society can find whānau, friendship and most importantly a sense of belonging.

Satoshi had it right. The world needs a decentralised system that doesn’t require the involvement of a third party.   This is DNA’s BTC Wallet.
