We’ve got developing countries inclusions and multiple markets that were untouched. We’ve got women in tech and marginalized people and places. We’ve got securitization of assets that totally eradicates things like white lie and prejudice in lending and other big barriers to opportunities for investment. But what is blockchain and what is cryptocurrency anyway? Go back to the basics with hosts Monika Proffitt and Tracy Hazzard as they provide a perspective for everyone who is new to the crypto and blockchain space on the whole blockchain technology, as well as go deep into issues such as women in tech, gender balance in the workplace, having enough value-based advancement for women in the workforce, innovation applications, applications built on blockchain or crypto, what you had to go through to make it happen, what’s not happening or what’s missing, what’s not working, what it’s like to be at this stage of disruptive technology, what do we do that’s sustainable, how do we find that, why should you invest in it, is it a good investment, and many more.
