Women hold just 6% of crypto CEO roles highlighting gap in leadership – report

A new report reveals women are vastly underrepresented in leadership positions across the cryptocurrency and blockchain industries.

The study analyzed 50 leading crypto and blockchain companies. It found only 6% of CEOs were women, while men held 94% of top executive positions.

Looking at broader leadership roles beyond CEO, men occupied 77.6% and just 22.4% by women. This highlights an imbalance despite more women reaching senior levels below CEO.

Chainalysis led in female inclusion, with women holding 46% of leadership roles. BitOasis and Coinbase followed with around 42% and 33% female leadership representation, respectively.

The report also examined crypto’s top 50 influencers on Twitter. Only 7 were women, meaning just 14% of prominent voices were female.

Layah Heilpern ranked highest for reach and engagement among women, while Ripple CEO Brad Garlinghouse was deemed the most engaging crypto influencer overall.

Developing nations saw the most equal engagement between genders in general crypto ownership. Vietnam had the smallest gap at 6 percentage points between male and female ownership. Kenya, Colombia, Indonesia, and others all saw strong involvement from women.

Over 24% of women own crypto in Vietnam – the highest proportion globally. India and the Philippines also ranked highly for overall female participation in crypto ownership.

The data indicates that while crypto is traditionally male-dominated, women increasingly adopt digital currencies, especially in emerging markets. However, work is still required to improve female inclusion across crypto’s upper echelons.
