It’s 2018, and thanks to cryptocurrencies and the blockchain we stand on the brink of a sea-change in global economics. This revolution has the potential to sweep away traditional power-bases and institutions and pave the way for genuine diversity and people power, providing unprecedented access to technology, data, and control regardless of location, status or identity. Why then do we continue to see women and other minorities underrepresented at every level? Frankly if Silicon Valley regards itself as the future, we’re in big trouble.

Wall Street is steadily making it easier for a wider range of investors to buy and sell bitcoin. It’s a development that should, in theory, boost prices—if a torrent of institutional money is poised to rush into crypto, then the buildout of professional-grade infrastructure should be a boon for things like bitcoin, ether, and other offshoots.

In cryptocurrency circles, calling something “centralized” is an insult. The epithet stems from Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto’s revelation: a monetary system doesn’t need a central authority, like a government, to work. That’s such a potent idea that it’s morphed into a battle among crypto-enthusiasts between good—that is, “decentralized”— currencies and evil ones, or anything with a whiff of “centralization,” that are assumed to threaten the utopian view of cryptocurrencies as the vehicle for a new financial world order.
