Top 3 Upcoming Women-in-Crypto Collectives to Watch
For outsiders to the industry, the world of crypto might look like a tech-bro’s paradise. However, these 3 online collectives are disrupting the male dominated industry.
The crypto space is no longer a boys club. That’s the message from dozens of new Web3 communities.
Statistically speaking, it is. Although the ratio of men to women in the industry is still higher, the gap is narrowing. According to a BlockFi survey released earlier this month, 1 in 3 women plan to buy crypto in 2022. Additionally, of the women surveyed, 24% of women own crypto and 92% said they have at least heard of crypto.
However, the disturbing statistics of the survey reveal that there is still work to be done. 80% of women surveyed find crypto confusing and 72% say it’s too risky for an investment. There is a correlation. A lack of education and understanding around decentralized finance leads to the assumption that crypto is “too risky”.
This data also suggests that the only thing known about crypto is from an earnings and investment perspective. In fact, women could use the variety of crypto utilities apart from investing, which brings greater digital freedom and creativity.
Do not fear! There are communities springing up left and right in an effort to meet this need. These are the top 3 upcoming female-focused collectives to monitor in space. #women-in-crypto

Their strategy: Learning is the key! “We strongly believe in the power of community learning. Our IRL events are designed to spark web3 curiosity. We showcase the incredible work of other women on Web3, which creates moments of community bonding. Our online content and our community are an extension of the sentiment of these events.
