Many interesting speakers and sponsors have announced they will attend BlockSplit conference in April in Split, Croatia. Here we shortly present some of them, but have in mind this list is not exhaustive!
It’s a common fact that there is a shortage of women in the tech industry, and blockchain industry is no exception. A recent article published by Forbes breaks down the number of women in the blockchain, stating that only 5-7% of cryptocurrency users are female, while only mere 1,76% of Bitcoin community falls into that category. Some studies even claim that women make only 4-6% of blockchain investors.
Looking at these numbers, it’s fair to conclude that this industry faces an evident gender bias problem. Diversity is not a characteristic feature of this industry, and the shortage of women is not the only problem – there is an evident shortage of representation of other minority groups, such as the people of color, varied sexual orientation, and different socioeconomic backgrounds.
In our previous blog post, we gave you an insight into takeaways from each track and workshop. Since then, the list of speakers has been updated. Therefore, we would now like to introduce you to some of our new speakers and give you a much clearer idea of their business and development presentations.
Anyone in charge of the conference agenda is well-aware that decisions about the type of lectures, workshops and speakers at a conference ultimately determine each participant’s experience and takeaways.
When we decided to organize this conference, our main motivation was to offer a platform that would serve as a starting point for all developers interested in the blockchain, and everyone else interested in implementing blockchain technology in their businesses, regardless of their initial industry.
