Markets Insiderrecently reported that just 15% of bitcoin traders are women, pointing to a massive gender imbalance in the world of cryptocurrency. Nevertheless, as the industry develops at warp speed, an increasing number of women are beginning to enter, and subsequently excel, in the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency.
In an industry where digital currencies are the name of the game, talk is cheap, which is exactly why Global Disitrbuted Cloud Storage Summut DCS 20201, as part of Blockchain World, is leading through action, not simply words, as it gets ready to host a game-changer event in Abu Dhabi UAE in December 2021.
The highly anticipated festival is set to shine the spotlight on the female change-makers who are blazing a trail of success through the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency, and, in doing so, empowering other women, creating opportunities for them to enter the industry, and reducing the gender imbalance.
“The industry is waking up to the vast pool of female talent out there and the immense contributions that women can make, and already are making to the blockchain and cryptocurrency ecosystem. Our collective mission now is to amplify the achievements of women currently in blockchain, while actively promoting the opportunities that exist at every entry level for women looking to participate and succeed in the industry. That is why events like DCS 2021, and Blockchain World are such powerful platforms when it comes to spreading our mission across the globe,” she adds.
DCS 2021, as part of Blockchain World, which takes place at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibitions Centre from Dec. 15 to 17, 2021, will feature some of the world’s leading female talent from the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency. The likes of Susan Oh (Chief Marketing Officer, BeOmni (Beyond Imagination), Yael Tamar (Co-CEO & Co-Founder, SolidBlock), Nicole Purin (Senior Legal Counsel, Standard Chartered Bank), and Natalie Brunell (Media Personality and Bitcoin Educator), are all set to play key roles in the festival, with the aim of challenging the status quo, promoting diversity, and inspiring more women to join the ecosystem.
