Notable Women in Blockchain

Women Partners

By now everyone knows (or should) that there are very VERY few women in the technology sector. Specifically, in the cryptocurrency/blockchain sector, unscientifically women poll only a little over 8% (which, duh, means over 90% are male). So, what to do about that and attract more brilliant females into this fast growing sector? Start with these 24 super talented women to set the standard and become the leaders for other women to follow in their footsteps. Guys, you can’t fight women and robots ALL the time. Learn from these women and perhaps even the ones sitting next to you. GO Girl, GO.
