Okcoin has announced that it will promote its grand program for bringing more women into crypto: Bitcoin for Fairness and Ladies in Bitcoins. Okcoin has outlined cryptocurrency as more inclusive for building, learning, and connecting. It will span blockchain development, education, career mentorship, and more. As a part of this initiative, Okcoin has also partnered with Emmy-winning journalist Natalie Brunell host of the top-ranking "Coin Stories" podcast, and Randi Zuckerberg, inaugural brand advisor of the company.
As more than 40% of Okcoin's customers are female, it wants to lessen the gender gap that outweighs traditional investments such as mutual funds, stocks, and bonds. Therefore, to address this, Okcoin has recently set a goal of having a 50% female customer base by 2025. In addition, it has allocated $1 million in terms of diversity-oriented grants.
Web3 is still young enough for women to get involved at the ground level and lead the next generation of innovation, which will be defined by digital assets, decentralized finance, and NFTs. We're excited to support Bitcoin for Fairness and Ladies in Bitcoin in making this possible. Crypto adoption may be lower among women right now, but with education, career resources, and community support, we can change this."
Hong Fang, CEO of Okcoin.
Okcoin also mentions that members of underrepresented populations can apply at okcoin.com/cryptoforall to support crypto-oriented work. Up until now, Okcoin has granted over $1 million to Bitcoin Core developers, who volunteer to build Bitcoin blockchain for anyone.
