The decentralized nature of cryptocurrency and blockchain more broadly has the potential to upend traditional power structures and empower disenfranchised and otherwise marginalized groups.
Unfortunately, many of the same structural problems that plague traditional finance are already emerging in cryptocurrency, like the concentration of wealth in the hands of a few men.
While Coinbase reports more than 13 million cryptocurrency accounts, 94 percent of the wealth is held by men, and 95 percent is held by a mere 4 percent of investors.
Join VSC + YPOSF for an intersectional dialogue about how blockchain-based businesses can empower women.
The panel discussion will be led by:
Lindsey Maule, CEO and Managing Partner of Luna Capital
Tammy Camp, Founder/ CEO of Stronghold
Lindsay Lin, Counsel & Program Manager at Lightyear.io
Brynly Llyr, General Counsel at Ripple
Maggie Philbin, Associate Director at VSC and event moderator
