“The biggest misunderstanding people have about Web 3 is that it’s just Web 2 plus tokens. We’ve come a long way from the days of initial coin offerings. Today, there are true decentralised applications that have hundreds of thousands of daily active users.

An awakening is happening and the Web 3 generation is craving an open-soured, decentralised, trustless, and permissionless internet.

There’s so much to be excited about, especially in the development of infrastructure around Web 3. That’s why I spend a lot of time incubating infrastructure around NFTs, decentralised storage, interoperability as well as how AI and other advanced data tools can be used in DApps. 

Of course, there’s a notion that Web 3 might be more male-dominated but I actually believe women leaders have a very strong say and influence in this industry. Women investors are strong listeners, provide more consistent support to portfolio companies and are usually great social engineers that identify strong partnership opportunities.

With that said, I also do think that there aren’t enough women founders in the field yet. But once crypto achieves the next 100 million users, it’ll no longer just be a cool thing that techy boys use, it’ll be an industry that will infiltrate the everyday lives of both men and women. And I think female product managers and designers will be in high demand in the near future.

That’s why I encourage projects to move beyond only employing women in business development or marketing. Look for female designers, product managers and data scientists.

Creators come in all shapes and sizes, and that’s what I like about ARC. I admire the team’s execution and echo its vision in building communities for true creators.

I’ve been in the very frontline of Web3 since I joined the industry in early 2020, and I can be a good pair of eyes and ears for the ARC community – bringing new ideas, introducing new initiatives from technical, commercial and investment angles.”
