Blockchain and the Economic Empowerment of Black Women with Olayinka Odeniran

Blockchain and the Economic Empowerment of Black Women with Olayinka Odeniran

This week host Alex Kehaya talks with Olayinka Odeniran, the CEO of CybSecWatch, a cybersecurity consulting firm, and the founder of the Black Women Blockchain Council, a community designed to support and inspire black women pursuing careers in blockchain and fintech. 

We follow Olayinka's blockchain journey and how a friend suggested she should "look into Bitcoin." Although she was initially skeptical of Bitcoin, Olayinka, a seasoned cybersecurity professional with over 16 years of experience in the financial sector, soon realized the power of the technology behind the cryptocurrency. 

Olayinka soon set out to educate others about Bitcoin and blockchain technology but quickly noticed a severe discrepancy regarding female and black representation in blockchain communities. She then made it her mission to close this gap immediately. 

Listen to Alex's full interview with Olayinka Odenrian to learn more about the Black Women Blockchain Council and their efforts to support and empower black communities on Web3. 

Olayinka shares her thoughts on how crypto empowers black women and underrepresented communities to help build generational wealth. Also, what impact the new creator economy has had on black artists, and how she's helping ensure these artists navigate NFT communities successfully.

The podcast is now available for download via Apple, Spotify, and other major streaming platforms.
