There is likely to be an entirely new generation of billionaires in the making as blockchain and cryptocurrency technology takes hold in the mainstream, as well as quite a few multi-millionaires amongst the "early adopters" still getting in now.

Unfortunately, many of the same structural problems that plague traditional finance are already emerging in cryptocurrency, where women make up less than 4% of total investors.

Join Gyals Network for an intersectional dialogue on the fundamentals of blockchain and cryptocurrency and learn how it will shape our future. Join this event if you are seeking answers to the following:

·      Blockchain and cryptocurrency: What is it?

·      Cryptocurrency: Is it safe? How is it real? How does it have value?

·      How are institutions investing in blockchain and cryptocurrency?

·      Confusing press: Blockchain and cryptocurrency in the media

·      How do I get involved? Is too late to invest?

·      How to get a career in blockchain/cryptocurrency?

The all-women panel discussion will be led by:

·      Alexandra Damsker, Securities Attorney & Blockchain Consultant

·      Saritta Hines, CEO Trustabit

·      Erin Penderson, Co-Founder Blockchain Beach

·      Nadine Shelton, Emerging Tech Consultant

·      Moderator: Jasmine Gill, Founder Gyals Network


·      6:30-7:00 - Sign up, Appetizers/Beverages and Networking

·      7:00-7:45 - Discussion + Q&A

·      7:45-8:00 - More Networking, Close

Note: While this event is being led by women, all are welcome to attend.
