There are hundreds of women in blockchain throughout every operation and implementation of the technology. All of these women are doing many brilliant things, but as with many industries, they do not get recognised. Here at Coin Rivet, we believe that women need to be supported and idolised.
Linda is the co-founder of Scalar Capital, a crypto asset investment firm. She has a massive 55,400 following on Twitter, which is not surprising for this inspiring woman. She first delved into the world of cryptocurrency in 2014 when she worked for Coinbase as their product manager. However, she first got interested in the space back in 2011 when she realised crypto was currency without government control, meaning no one could take it away.
