Breaking through the glass ceiling as women in the blockchain ecosystem.

Talking about the pros and cons of participating as a woman in the blockchain ecosystem, Kanık also mentioned the survey titled “Women in the Blockchain Ecosystem,” conducted by Akademetre in collaboration with Paribu and Istanbul Blockchain Women as well as the survey results.

Kanık states that it is important for women to have a voice in an ecosystem that is developing and promising. On the other hand, she pointed out that women may have certain disadvantages based on some results of the professional survey. She said, “Whereas women are expected to be hindered less by job loss due to technology in OECD countries, men are expected to take more roles in new business lines that need a workforce,” emphasizing that this may create an unfair competition environment against women.
