Crypto’s Gender Disparity: What Can Be Done About It? 4 Women Weigh In

Crypto sits at the intersection of two male-dominated industries: tech and finance. I was asked to moderate a panel for the Amber Group with four leading women in crypto to discuss the role of gender in the crypto industry and what can be done to bring more women into the space. Panelists include Mia Deng, partner at Dragonfly Capital; Amy Zhang, vice president of sales at Fireblocks; Alexis Gauba, cofounder at Opyn; and Annabelle Huang, partner at Amber Group. Show highlights:

  • how each panelist got into crypto, what it is they do, and which company they work for
  • why women have been somewhat reluctant to speak on crypto gender disparity in public
  • what the main obstacles to bringing about better gender diversity in crypto
  • whether the crypto space is harder to break into than traditional finance for women
  • how gender issues in the U.S. are different than in Asia
  • why more women have begun trading cryptocurrencies and how to increase that interest
  • which crypto explanations are most effective for female friends
  • why there are so few female crypto co-founders
  • good hiring practices for bringing more women into the space
  • advice for women trying to break into crypto
