These 5 Women are Powering Through the Blockchain World

No, It's not all-men.

The world, since ages it seems, has been mainly two things, white and male. The same applied to the blockchain world; the male participation in the Bitcoin community was far more than that of their counterparts. Well that’s how it was initially. But the tables seem to be turning, as more and more women are taking their place in this newfound revolution.

These amazing young women are powering their way up in the blockchain world.

Amber Baldet

Baldet might as well be a genius considering she taught herself code at the age of 11. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that she was named to CoinDesk’s list of “Most influential in Blockchain in 2017” and also ranked #31 on Fortune’s “40 Under 40” in 2017.

She served as the Executive Director at JPMorgan’s Blockchain division, a post she left and went ahead to find a platform called Clovyr, which aims to bring the flexibility and ease of use of modern application development to the blockchain domain.

This Georgetown professor has a knack for the blockchain tech because she is a regular Forbes contributor through her blog, “The Beauty of Blockchain.” Impressively enough, she is also the founder of the Chamber of Digital Commerce, that aims to promote the acceptance and use of digital assets and blockchain-based technologies. Furthermore, she was named one of the “Top Women in Bitcoin” in 2015 and made CoinDesk’s “10 Most Influential People in Blockchain 2016” list.
