Two Women with Powerful Stories Come Together to Bring Blockchain Awareness to Minority Communities
Finding one's own source of power is a life-changing event, and to find the ability to empower others is a generation changing catalyst that can only lead to a better world.
With this backdrop, into the picture walks Jessica Contreras, a Mexican American who describes her ethnicity in one phrase: “I am Mexican American — in that order.” She has overcome many challenges on her way towards success in starting her own tequila brand, and launching an international venture to provide a better payment system and ID verification method using Blockchain technology.
Then there is the story of Alicia Maria, an African American female from Oakland, California; she is an experienced corporate professional with a passion for wine who founded The Wine Noire in 2017. As a long time wine aficionado, her love for wine goes back 10 years. In the United States and internationally, Alicia discovered that women & people from all walks of life, produced amazing wines and champagne. She also identified the gap in the distribution/wholesale supply chain for wine and champagne makers of color. Out of this problem a solution was born which has come to be the mission statement for The Wine Noire, LLC.
The Aclyd and The Wine Noire partnership will provide wine & champagne makers a faster, efficient, and technologically advanced method using Blockchain technology and cryptocurrency to give these wines and champagne a broader reach in the global marketplace.
