This question is part of the New York Chapter Diversity in Blockchain Launch Event on May 7, 2019. We hope that our attendees can successfully interact with an Ethereum application after our evening of programming.
Diversity in Blockchain Inc. (DiB) is a nonprofit organization committed to creating equal, open and inclusive opportunities in the blockchain industry. Our mission is to empower everyone from all walks of life to engage with blockchain technology in order to ensure equal participation and distribution. True innovation includes everyone. Through education, discussion, and engagement we can build a support network as revolutionary as the blockchain itself.
Diversity of blockhain means the future, where people and companies from worldwide can connect and collaborate with each other.
Diversity in blockchain means actively preventing blockchain to be consumed by systemic biases existent in other technologies. Representation and active inclusion are just a couple of ways to ensure blockchain remains open and accessible to all.
For me diversity in blockchain means to finally build a more diverse and inclusive future, where we learn from our past evolutionary mistakes as humanity. I dream a blockchain future with a more open and conscious society, with equal opportunity for everyone regardless of race, color, gender or any status.
Diversity in blockchain to me is having a welcome and comforting atmosphere for people of all skill sets and geographic areas. This means that tailoring a message to each audience is essential to expand our network of all types of people in all sectors of the world.
Diversify in blockchain to me is like networking people or companies together around the world. It is the future of technologies that can connect the world.
Diversity in the blockchain to me is the core of blockchain. Blockchain can be used by anyone anywhere, with no discrimination based on race, nationality etc.
In my opinion “Diversity in Blockchain” is a process as well as an attainable state/end result. It is a process because at the beginning, it might appear that blockchain technology is bot diversified but instead is concentrated among certain groups based on how technologically educated they are, a particular languages (English by the most part), literacy (it requires certain level of education to grasp what this blockchain technology is all about), it seems male-dominated (the name was Satoshi and not Satosha) and also the main leaders of the movement seems to be male), and therefore there is no diversity so technically we can speak about “Diversity in Blockchain”, so as a process, the essence of “Diversity in Blockchain” is to start creating this diversity by teaching the usability of this “common human good” to all groups of people without forcing any particular standard of diversification upon the blockchain ecosystem that fits our pre-conceived ideas of what the term diversity means. As an end result, “Diversity in Blockchain” is not to have specific percentage of groups based on race, religion, social status, education, etc within the blockchain ecosystem but to make sure all groups of people as wholes are granted with the necessary opportunities (in a sustained, prolonged and progressive manner) to learn the know-hows of blockchain technology at these early stages when the level field is practically equal for everybody, whatever this leads in terms of a representative makeup based on any variable (e.g. racial, social, etc) is the product of creating Diversity in Blockchain that might not be “perfect” for some but fair enough for all.
For me diversity in Blockchain means that everyone has equal opportunities regardless of where you are from. Blockchain is here to break barriers and connect the world.
Diversity in the blockchain space means going beyond words and actively supporting people from all backgrounds to enter the space, particularly women and ethnic minorities. Crypto companies should be actively supporting stem programmes and getting kids into the space. It also means actively tackling maximalism and finding ways to counter abuse on social media.
I believe that the diversity in the blockchain is to take its place and that can puzzle people or create jobs in the future. This should be the future of our time when you know what and for whom you are trying!
