DecentraNet’s Tiffany Madison in Forbes: Meet the Woman Advising The World’s Top Blockchain Companies
Forbes sat down with DecentraNet’s Tiffany Madison to discuss her experience as a female cofounder in the blockchain space, where we’re headed, and why it’s more important than ever to have more women and inclusion when dealing with a technology with the potential to massively impact people’s lives — for the better.
“How can we get more women into blockchain?
1) Create new opportunities: As the blockchain industry is transitioning from its newborn phase into infancy, new opportunities are emerging for women. Until recently, most of the positions in this space targeted technologists, a niche underrepresented with women. While we still have work to do, more women are entering STEM and technology-related fields than ever. As the industry continues to grow, positions where women often shine become more in demand, especially operations, marketing, public relations, content development, and media. Further, over the next decade, many industries where women dominate will be disrupted by blockchain, creating a catalyst for their interest.
2) Offer a platform: I also think industry events are a very public way of demonstrating support for inclusion and diversity. Event organizers and leaders can play a very important role by continuing to foster an inclusive culture welcoming to all. At d10e, we specifically sought female moderators to mediate all-male panels. Our emcee, still to this day, is the very talented young woman, Naomi Brockwell, also known as Bitcoin Girl. The result was that more women leaders felt empowered by their roles as early adopters and thought leaders, and more inclined to speak at future events. When DecentraNet hosts events, we promote inclusion by seeking out as many talented and diverse presenters as possible.
3) Focus on cryptocurrency adoption first: In my experience, interest in cryptocurrency almost always leads to interest in the power of blockchain technologies. Estimates currently place that 5 to 7 percent of all cryptocurrency users are women, making the industry a highly male-dominated one.I think this will change in the next 5-10 years. As cryptocurrency investment platforms, including wallets and exchanges, continue to become less cumbersome and more user-friendly, many women that do not consider themselves technical, but financially savvy, are apt to become interested.”
