Global investment titan J. Todd Morley (pictured above) on women and the blockchain imperative.
I have completely upgraded our thinking to account for the effects – and to invest in businesses – which take advantage of the blockchain. Why? Because it’s Internet 3.0.
The blockchain will open new ideas and markets and it will unleash the power of humanity at an exponential pace. And it’s very likely that 50% of the world, WOMEN, can take the lead and utilize the powers of the blockchain.
The blockchain is the great equalizer that can be the key catalyst for the Decade Of Women. The protocols of Ethereum and others are gender neutral. The blockchain doesn’t feature gender bias, it doesn’t care! The blockchain, Internet 3.0, will allow women to create and exchange services and ideas…with intention…and with connection to like-minded people. Women need to understand the awesome power of Internet 3.0.
“The super powers of women are about to roll throughout the world, with tsunami-like force. But women need to quickly understand the gifts of Internet 3.0.”
Education is critical because the utility of the blockchain is here, and now. The super powers of women are about to roll throughout the world, with tsunami-like force. But women need to quickly understand the gifts of Internet 3.0. It is simply the latest in a string of disintermediation technologies that decentralize power. A good place to start is “The Truth Machine: The Block-chain and the Future of Everything,” by Michael J. Casey and Paul Vigna.
The quest for empowerment, at its essence, is power transference. It has arrived with the blockchain.
The blockchain offers safety and connectivity with intention. Purpose-driven people are proliferating these new protocols so unheard voices and unseen faces can find a market, find capital, and find protection due to the unique state of the blockchain protocols and the open ledger system. Intention is now unhackable!
That’s why I participated in the Decade Of Women Collaboratory led by 5th Element Group. And it’s why I am pledging to focus my best (100%!) energy toward this blockchain space. This frontier technology represents a game-changer moment, when financial inclusion and independence for women can be achieved at a dramatic new scale. I’ll do all I can to help make it happen with partners that can bring the change.
