Why are there so few women in Blockchain land?
The diversity of ages, nationalities and backgrounds at DevCon2 was amazing. Although all the presentations were in English, probably a minority of the attendees were native English speakers.
But less than a handful of the presentations over three days were given by women, and the total number of women in the audience of several hundred was probably less than a couple of dozen. Many of the women I did talk to where not directly involved in coding.
So where are all the women? Why are they not better represented? Is it the insane hours — a life style choice? Or are women just not that interested in new technologies?
For a technology that is so open, so inclusive, so democratic this is a paradox!
