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: and a full list of confirmed speakers and the agenda can be found here.

August 2018.
