Make way for ladies in web 3! Abu Dhabi is attracting major crypto players, such as Binance, thanks to the efforts of regulators who want to create an environment conducive to the growth of the sector. A new initiative to make the cryptosphere more inclusive is expected to contribute to the development of the crypto ecosystem in the city and in the UAE.
FREE CRYPTO DOMAIN NAMES FOR WOMEN IN ABU DHABI…
Access Abu Dhabi and the Abu Dhabi Investment Office (ADIO) announced, in a statement on June 2, 2022, their collaboration with NFT domain name provider, Unstoppable Domains, to offer a free crypto domain name to women residents of the Emirati capital.
The statement points out that women make up only 5-7% of all cryptocurrency users. They make up only 12% of blockchain workers. These figures contrast with the fact that 50% of small and medium-sized enterprises in the UAE are owned by women.
… FOR GREATER INCLUSION OF WOMEN IN THE WEB 3
This initiative of Unstoppable Domains and its partners aims to give the opportunity to women who reside in the capital of the United Arab Emirates to participate in web 3.
It was announced during the visit to Abu Dhabi by a delegation of the “Women of Web 3”. The latter are a group of American women entrepreneurs who have specialized in disruptive technologies.
In addition, U.S. women entrepreneurs specializing in Web3 technologies met with business leaders and key people from the Emirate’s ecosystem from May 24 to 26.
With these free web3 domain names, Access Abu Dhabi, ADIO and Unstoppable Domains provide women with:
« (…)a decentralized web address and digital identity that give them full control of their data and content in a space that belongs entirely to them.»
As for the acting ceo of ADIO, Eng. Abdulla Abdul Aziz Al Shamsi, he considers that this partnership with Unstoppable Domains “embodies the emirate’s promise of inclusion”.
A growing number of women working on crypto and web 3 projects can only be favorable to the development of the ecosystem in the medium and long term. NFTs are already being used today for causes aimed at women’s empowerment. They have, for example, been used to support the right to education of Afghan women. An NFT was also issued as a declination, in the web3, of a statue that conveys a strong message in favor of women.
