Amy Barker, Wirex Head of People and Power List judge commented on this years list, remarking upon the incredible women in the sector who were nominated this year:
“The calibre of nominees this year was truly outstanding, and it was extremely difficult to narrow down the list to just ten women. At Wirex, we’ve built our culture around empowering everyone to get involved and recognising everyone’s successes, which is why we’re proud that our Women in Crypto campaign has attracted the attention of so many people wanting to highlight the amazing achievements of their friends and colleagues.”
The power list for women in crypto recognises the achievements of these women who currently work in crypto, but also seeks to encourage more women to work in this field and rise up in this industry.
