Keynote has announced a $6 million fund to support diversity and inclusion within the blockchain industry.

“The fund exists to ensure everyone has the opportunity to play an active role in the development and evolution of blockchain and opportunities to work and develop in blockchain are open to all regardless of age, disability, gender identity or gender expression, race, ethnicity, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation or any other equality characteristic,” the company has said.

The fund is also aimed at creating better opportunities for those blockchain and crypto experts facing obstacles and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to further their careers and knowledge within the industry.
