EP 10 - Gender equity in emerging technologies: women in cryptocurrency

Crypto has been the best performing asset class over the last year.

Bitcoin has consistently earned higher returns as compared to stocks, except in 2018. Still today, Bitcoin transactions account for just under 9% by women.

Furthermore, the lack of diversity in crypto has deep and lasting implications beyond the sense of a need for equal opportunity.

In this episode, Sophie discusses with an expert and early adopter of Bitcoin, Dubai-based lawyer, and certified blockchain expert, Irina Heaver the future of crypto's market and why women need to get in the game.
