I'm a full-time crypto evangelist and investor. I have a background in marketing and advertising, but I left it all behind in late 2020 to pursue -- You guessed it: Crypto!
In October 2020, more than 20 local ladies in the ATX area asked me to help them get started with crypto...
So I decided to open things up to everyone and eventually get 'CryptoFemme' chapters started in other cities!
Less than one month later, I created @CryptoFemme (FB page) and this group because I understand the desire so many people have:
Wanting to make money in crypto without it taking up way too much time, or WORSE -- having your hard-earned money swept out from under you.
This group is a passion project for me because today (2022), 14% of adults worldwide are invested in crypto...But more than 70% of them are men. Let's change that statistic!"
Did you know that 75% of crypto holders are men? Moreover, 60% of crypto investors are white men under the age of 45 – creating an uninviting culture that gatekeeps women from participating in the $2.2 Billion crypto industry.
Join the CryptoFemme team and learn about their vision for bringing crypto to one million women by 2030 because the future is female, and crypto is the future. Natalie and the team are betting on the massive mainstream adoption of blockchain technology applications by startups worldwide in virtually all industries and niches within the next five years.
Today only 15% of crypto investors are women, and only 4% of blockchain professionals are women. Let's do our part to create equal representation in the space and ensure that women can win BIG when the time comes.
