According to Forbes, blockchain and cryptocurrencies are poised to become the largest disruptive technologies in the world, yet only 5-7% of the those active in the technologies are women. More women active in the field can inspire so many opportunities! For example on the tech side, there are opportunities for women to develop distributed apps (dapps) for more effective business processes. Women are uniquely poised to build dapps that could appeal to female users. Women investors and entrepreneurs have opportunities to build new solutions on public ledgers, shortcutting business processes to more fair and secure systems. The more women involved in the field, the more women mentors inspiring a future gender balanced workforce!
