At the baseline, participation can be anonymous. One can contribute to the technology, mine bitcoin and ether, create a digital wallet and invest without anyone knowing who you are. But more than this, women have a chance to play at the forefront of shaping this industry, and to lead in unprecedented ways.
Currently, around 5% of the crypto enthusiasts are women —including developers, investors, founders and casually interested individuals. This doesn’t seem like much compared to women in the tech sector at large where the women hold only about 20% of tech jobs, and around 17% of startups have a female founder.
While the numbers are small right now, I believe that is about to change.
