The 35 Most Influential Bitcoiners Dominating Crypto ...
The most influential women in crypto
On International Women's Day, we’d like to give recognition to the incredible women who have made undeniable contributions to the crypto industry, crypto mass adoption, promotion, and development. Laura Shin - the chief editor for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technologies at Forbes, one of the founders of Forbes Fintech 50. She is also a host of Unchained, a podcast about cryptocurrencies and blockchain. Nina Nichols - the founder and president of Global Women in Blockchain. Elizabeth Stark - the co-founder and CEO of Lightning Labs, the company whose main product, Bitcoin Lightning Network, helps crypto users to use payment channels with skyrocketing speed and low fees. Galia Benartzi - the co-founder of a cryptocurrency exchange Bancor which allows users to exchange crypto without any mediators, on the basis of smart contracts. Rachel Wolfson - the cryptocurrency and blockchain journalist. Also, she is a host of the well-known “BadCrypto” podcast. She has been motivating lots of women to become a part of the crypto and blockchain sphere. Tiffany Hayden - the crypto influencer with 76k followers on Twitter, huge XRP (and crypto in general) fan and supporter. Also, she helps professionals and organizations in the finance industry understand blockchain technology in an easy and comprehensive way. Jennifer Greyson - CEO of AI Blockchain, which uses AI to make financial forecasts using blockchain technology. Connie Gallippi - the founder of BitGive, a Bitcoin charity organization that empowers donors and organizations to make a positive social impact by bitcoin donations. BitGive is a partner of many charity organizations such as The Water Project, Save the Children, Medic Mobile, and many others. Joyce Kim - the executive director of Stellar Lumens, one of those cryptocurrencies that are popular to use both within blockchain-focused communities and traditional businesses. Stellar provides the advanced speed of transactions, is customizable and highly accessible. Kim also works as a lawyer for immigrants as well as domestic abuse survivors. Jinglan Wang - the executive director of the Blockchain Educational Network that helps students all over the world to create and develop their blockchain communities. Jill Ni - Head of Binance Charity, Binance Charity is a non-profit blockchain-based organization that helps solve social and ecological problems using blockchain technology thus making donating more transparent, secure. Recently, the company has made significant donations to combat coronavirus in China. Maggie Xu - CEO of Jaxx Liberty, a cryptocurrency platform that empowers people to take control of their digital lives by managing digital assets, including stable coins. All Jaxx products (wallet, in-app exchange, portfolio, markets, news and block explorers) are non-custodial, always free and offer 7-day support to its global user community. Despite the fact that the number of women in crypto and fintech industries is still lower than that of men, more and more of them are getting involved in the industry and start playing significant roles in blockchain space from one year to another. This tendency wouldn’t come true if there weren’t women who inspire and be role models for other women. We hope that this trend will continue and, in the next decade, we’ll see more women in crypto!
The State of Cryptocurrency Media, According to Laura Shin
In the latest episode of “Balancing the Ledger,” the _Fortune_team turns the tables on Laura Shin, known in the cryptocurrency world for her own probing podcast interviews, for a critical discussion about media coverage of the crypto industry. One problem, Shin highlighted, is that cryptocurrency-focused media outlets are more prone to “pay to play” schemes, which involve journalists providing positive coverage in exchange for money or gifts. One reason for this, Shin speculates, is the global nature of the blockchain industry, and that many of the writers covering it hail from places where the norms around journalism are different than in the West. (Editor’s note: _Fortune_does not engage in such tactics.) Shin, who was previously a staff writer for Forbes, notes that it’s not just far-flung crypto outlets that have shown questionable ethics. Mainstream outlets, too, she says, have been irresponsible in feeding the frenzy during cryptocurrency’s bubble phases. “I just thought, ‘Oh my god, their audience is going to lose so much money. Why are they doing this?'” Shin says. As for her own fledgling media empire—Shin now runs two podcasts, “Unchained” and “Unconfirmed,” and is building out a live-events business—she has encountered the same challenges as the rest of the media industry, including fears of the monopoly power of the big tech giants. “What if someday there is the Google of podcast ads, and suddenly they tweak something and my revenue plummets?” Shin says. Meanwhile, the cryptocurrency industry itself may soon come to provide a new revenue stream for media outlets in the form of crypto micropayments, which would allow entrepreneurs like Shin to collect small contributions from thousands of readers or listeners. Shin worries, however, that such a system could come to resemble Spotify—where a handful of popular artists cash in but the majority only receive scraps. She also noted that her experience putting a “tip jar” on her blog hasn’t been a rousing success—”I’ve made like 42 cents from the tip jar,” she laughs. While Shin has now done hundreds of interviews in the crypto world, one guest was her all-time favorite: Binance’s CEO, Changpeng Zhao, better known as CZ. “It was the pleasure of giving somebody a tough question and having them coming right back at you with the strength of their convictions,” Shin says, describing CZ’s defense of his company’s regulatory arbitrage strategy as “interesting and thought-provoking.” As for the issue of regulation in the United States—namely whether the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is stifling innovation in the crypto sector—Shin says she is torn. “As an American, I’m like, ‘Hey, wait, these teams are actually American, they should be here [but] there’s all this talent leaving…but I’ve also had friends lose money to scammers,” she says. A major court ruling or act of Congress would bring much-needed clarity to the industry, she adds. For now, Shin remains hard at work on her forthcoming book, which she describes as “the second chapter of crypto history—picking up the story of cryptocurrency following the early days of Bitcoin as chronicled in Nathaniel Popper’s highly regarded Digital Gold. * More Details Here
