When it comes to women in crypto, the pre-2016 OG heads will probably come up with names like Alena Vranova and Blythe Masters.
Alena Vranova is the former CEO of Satoshi Labs, the company that manufactures the Trezor hardware wallet. She was truly one of the pioneers, having met Stick and Slush in 2013 at a (at that time very small and niche) bitcoin event in Prague and eventually leaving her cosy job in an insurance company to start the blockchain technology venture Satoshi Labs.
The fact that she was one of the very few known women in bitcoin industry arguably helped Trezor catch the well-deserved attention a little faster on then very male-dominated cryptocurrency subreddits.
For a time the Czech trio was extremely prolific: Vranova, Stick and Slush developed the first ever hardware wallet, open-sourcing the code, and Slush started operating the first ever BTC mining pool. However, the public interest in bitcoin mining soon waned with its increasing difficulty and the onset of ASICs while Trezor wallet fell to second-best place, losing to the more affordable Ledger Hardware Wallet.
Vranova eventually left Satoshi Labs for work in the area of the connection of legacy finance and blockchain technology.
Blythe Masters became widely known in the cryptocurrency community in 2015 when she was an executive at JPMorgan Chase. During that time the price of bitcoin was in a long slumber, ranging around 200 USD per BTC and the community was very welcoming of any bitcoin advocate within the legacy finance industry.
However, Masters soon left JPMorgan Chase to join a new startup, Digital Asset Holdings, as chief executive. Digital Asset Holdings is a fintech startup dedicated to the development of tools for cost-efficient settlement of trade and financial transactions in regulated industries.
Masters is also the chairman of the Linux Foundation board for Hyperledger, the open-source distributed ledger project heavily used by trade finance blockchain consortia.
Masters has since vanished from the public eye of the crypto community but her advisory memberships make it clear she is deep in the business network concerned with blockchain for banking and finance.
One of the blockchain female executives that still keep in the limelight is Perianne Boring, the founder and president of the Chamber of Digital Commerce. She has been in the lead of this organization for several years, building it into the world’s largest trade association representing primarily the blockchain industry.
To name one example for all, one of the current advisors of Chamber of Digital Commerce is none other than Blythe Masters.
Perianne Boring regularly gives talks at blockchain and fintech events, she appears on CNBC and has been sharing knowledge in her informative interviews about blockchain for digital commerce since 2016.
