International Women’s Day was just last Friday, March 8th which marked a perfect time to focus on some of the most powerful women in the blockchain and crypto sector. (Uh, guys it’s not like Valentines Day so you’re safe). The media is always reporting about the lack of women in tech BUT here are some that are not only in the tech sector, they OWN it. Take a look at the Power Women who are changing the fintech world. Congratulations to all and we are extremely proud to personally know many of them.

“As women get into tech sector, there are fewer role models and mentors around them.
If they don’t see female role models and leaders they sometimes think they can’t see themselves there. Women in Crypto and Blockchain therefore are very valuable as they provide younger women with a model of how they could fit in such industries.
Here is an informal list of who I believe you can follow on Twitter (or elsewhere) that are indeed inspiring in the crypto and blockchain space broadly speaking.
