At this point, gender inequality in tech is well documented.
As it turns out, the blockchain industry is absolutely no different – there is a staggeringly disproportionate amount of males employed by the next wave of cryptocurrency companies.
Recent analysis discovered men comprised an overwhelming majority of recent blockchain startups – just 14.5 percent of team members are women, reports blockchain data firm LongHash.
Even worse, female executives are in charge of just seven percent of these recently founded cryptocurrency companies.
For advisors, the number is just one tick higher, at roughly eight percent.
In addition to their general staff, 326 founders (including “C-Grade” executives), and 473 members of related advisory boards were also recorded.
