Women in Blockchain and AI

Why there need to be more: The blockchain industry is currently comprised of 97% men, which brings with it the traditional challenges of male and female equality in the world. However, when this imbalance is paired with the potential of blockchain to be the mechanism of wealth distribution of the future, this raises questions of disparity of access to income and power at levels that are exponential. Additionally, the way that artificial intelligence and machine intelligence learn is through the (biased) perspectives that the rules of its coders give it. How might we get more women involved in the coding and building of these technologies to ensure a world with equal opportunity for all, as the future unfolds.
