PRESS RELEASE | FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | August 2018
New $6 million diversity and inclusion fund for the global blockchain industry

Keynote Launches a new fund to support diversity and inclusion in the development and use of blockchain technology.

Keynote is thrilled to launch a new $6 million Fund to support diversity and inclusion in 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.

This year, Keynote are particularly encouraging applications to speak, volunteer and attend the World Blockchain Forum London from young people, women and people and people with disabilities as these groups are currently under-represented in the blockchain industry. These opportunities are aimed at those who will benefit most from this opportunity and who might not otherwise have the opportunity to develop their careers and knowledge within the industry. Applications to speak, volunteer or attend will be accepted on a rolling basis and will close on Friday 17 August 2018.

Keynote’s founder and CEO, Moe Levin, commented:

“Digital currencies and blockchain, are intended to be democratizing and equalising and it’s really important the industry is representative of the population across globe. Diversity is the basis for collective achievement, and we therefore need more people to join the blockchain conversation. The range of perspectives and experience diversity brings is an asset to the blockchain industry.”

Over the last six years Keynote has invested $3 million into the education of young people in blockchain in marginalized and underserved populations. This Fund will now enable Keynote to continue and extend its support to ensure the blockchain industry is inviting perspectives from a diverse range of people from across the globe to activate new ideas, conversations and educative experiences

Keynote Chief of Communications, Amandah Hendricks says:

“It’s important to understand this fund exists not only to both support diversity in blockchain technologies, it’s also about bringing more people into the general cryptocurrency conversations. Awareness and good communication are key to a more diverse and inclusive environment and this will be a big focus at this year’s World Blockchain Forum in London. We are looking to support new and fresh perspectives and give a voice to everyone.”

The $6 million Fund will be officially launched at this year’s World Blockchain Forum held in the heart of London at the Old Billingsgate. Tickets are available at: london.keynote.ae/tickets and a full list of confirmed speakers and the agenda can be found here .

For expressions of interest, please contact Amandah Hendricks, Chief of Communications, at amandah@keynote.ae. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and will close on Friday 17 August 2018.

As globalization spreads over the planet, the need for fast and cheap cross-border money transfers is growing rapidly. Cryptocurrency provides exactly that kind of transfers with the added benefits of security and lack of centralization. However, despite being what seems like the perfect solution to the global money transfer problem, crypto has yet to become a major player in the currency arena. It’s growing in popularity, that’s for sure. But that rate isn’t even close to what’s needed for crypto to become a recognized and universally accepted payment method.

The question is why?

There can be no doubt that the need for what cryptocurrency can offer is huge. It’s most obvious when considering the situation of migrant workers, who are also growing in number due to globalization. The amount of remittances in the world has risen to over $530 billion a year. However, the high cost of these transfers is such a concern that the UN launched a program dedicated to reducing those numbers to, at least, 3% by 2030.

One doesn’t need a degree in economy and finances to see what kind of difference cryptocurrency could make for this situation alone. At the moment, migrant workers are losing about $25 billion in money transfer fees. There are still some remittance…
