The alpha females of cryptocurrency
The cryptocurrency industry burgeons with increasing innovations and novel concepts. The industry has a far reach and widening possibilities in the future. Crypto enthusiasts mint money from coin and blockchain investments. But it is also important to know the people behind the promotion and development of the expanding crypto verse.
Blockchain industry like most other industries is a male-dominated industry, featuring many male figures at the center of the blockchain revolution. This year’s Forbes’ list of ‘the richest people in cryptocurrency’ paraded 19 men and no women. According to Coin.dance, women comprised only 8.78 percent in the world crypto enthusiasts and professionals engaged in cryptocurrency. Over 90% of the industry is dominated by men. However, this patriarchal society also has the presence of many influential women.
The former executive director of JP Morgan’s Blockchain Centre for excellence, Amber Baldet worked on Blockchain in a bank. She was on the list of ‘Most influential in Blockchain 2017’. She taught herself to code when she was 11. A tech wiz from childhood she started her own crypto startup called Clovyvr. Clovyyr aims to help consumers, developers and business explore blockchain based decentralized technologies. She stresses the need for expert help to take all the demographics into consideration to make the user experience easier.
Baldet said,” Women, I’ve found, are quick to postulate scenarios that unfortunately often hit close to home, like how GPS location sharing or an emailed receipt might disclose sensitive activity to an abusive partner,” she says. “Later those same privacy features might make someone love your app because you kept them from accidentally ruining a surprise party. Diversity in development isn’t about a numbers game. It’s about filling in each other’s blind spots to build a safer, more useful product for everybody.”
With a tech wiz heralding Clovyr, the start-up will take the road to Damascus in the future.
