Am I right in feeling like the crypto world is a bit of a boy's club?

I’m guessing you’re in a few discords/telegrams and the language indicates that. You’re right. The crypto space is like SV in the 90s. Mass adoption of crypto has barely happened and that’s why it feels like a boys club with folks saying whatever they want and not considering the women in the room.

What’s a boys club? What’s the point of this post? No one is preventing woman from entering into blockchain if that’s what you’re asking.

I think the point of the OPs comment was that it sure seems like the crypto blockchain crowd is largely comprised of aggressive scheming males. But that's just what I infer from the intent

Yes!! I was in a crypto/blockchain club in college & was the only female (or one of maybe three) in a group of 40-70 kids for almost three years.

I’ve seen that trend continue now, where almost everyone I know interested in crypto/blockchain is male.

Definitely seems like a boys club to me. With the mass speculation and anarchic tones obviously present, I have a feeling this won't end well.

I'm a woman and I've been interested in various new technologies throughout my career. To me it seems like if a technology gets a fair amount of women interested in it, it is automatically perceived as less cool, less revolutionary, less hard core, etc.

Great point, would you mind sharing some examples of where this has been the case? I want to reference this when making this exact point to other people. Thanks!

The only person I know who works at Coinbase is a girl so I thought it was a girls’ club...

So, boys have to self censor themselves and not enter the field to keep you happy.
