Social Block

In this episode of the Social Block, we dove into a topic that can completely alter what the blockchain industry (and the world) could look like in the years to come.

Episode #8, with guest Amanda Wick, CEO of the Association for Women in Cryptocurrency (AWIC), explores the pivotal role of women in Web3 and blockchain in their capacity as everything from investors to employees, founders, and more.

Amanda’s experience with AWIC, as well as in her roles as Chief of Legal Affairs at Chainalysis, Inc., a federal prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), and Senior Policy Advisor at FinCEN, make her the perfect guest for this episode.

As you’ll soon hear, this session isn't just about how blockchain can help women and other underrepresented groups transcend unconscious bias and other hurdles to equality; it’s also about why we need women for our space to evolve and improve.

Episode #8: Women in Crypto

In this inspiring, and (hopefully) industry-changing discussion, Magy and Amanda dissect crucial topics surrounding women's growing influence in the cryptosphere, such as:

🌟Intentional inclusion: Why giving opportunities to women that would have otherwise been given to men is crucial for industry progression.

🔍Risk assessment: Why women's unique approach to evaluating risks is increasingly being valued in the blockchain space.

💼Trends among female investors: Namely, extensive research, risk assessment, a notable confidence gap, and a tendency for long-term investments (HODLing).

💡The systemic issue of limited VC capital for female-founded projects.

This episode is a must-listen, not just for those invested in crypto, but for anyone interested in the dynamics of gender, equity, and technological innovation in modern industries.
