Speaking on the mission, Okcoin CEO Hong Fang expressed his optimism towards gearing up the female population into delving into the wealth-creating opportunities provided by the crypto space.

Ensuring equality and ending gender marginalization in the crypto space has always been one of Okcoin’s top priorities since its establishment in 2013. True to their vision, Okcoin has recently announced its $1 million commitment to drawing more women into the world of crypto.

Randi Zuckerberg, sister to Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has been appointed as the inaugural member of the committee. Okcoin hopes to achieve a 50% female customer base by 2025, and Randi’s job would be to make the dream a reality.

As a successful entrepreneur and investor, Randi’s experience in the field makes her a perfect fit for Okcoin’s noble goals. With her vast experience, she will help guide specific projects, usher women into the crypto sphere, spearhead campaigns for women-run crypto programs, and more.

Accepting the appointment, she expressed her appreciation by saying:

“It’s always been a passion of mine to inspire and support women in technology, investing, and leadership, and I’m looking forward to continuing to do so as a member of Okcoin’s brand advisory council. Cryptocurrency has huge potential to make massive strides in creating a more equitable system, and it’s an honor to join in the Okcoin mission to create a more inclusive future of finance.”

The crypto space is currently a male-dominated industry, regardless of its flexibility and freedom to wealth creation. Although there are a number of women in the space, only few of them have been able to make the climb into the upper echelon of the industry.

Different surveys and data tend to show that there are more male participants than females within the industry. In fact, a Bloomberg report citing data from Citywire Alpha Female 2021 report said it might not be easy for women to break into the crypto space because the percentage of women who manage money worldwide rose to just 11.8% from 10.3% this year.

Speaking on the mission, Okcoin CEO Hong Fang expressed his optimism towards gearing up the female population into delving into the wealth-creating opportunities provided by the crypto space.

He further opined that women had been locked out of the traditional financial system for a very long time now. However, all of that is about to change with his platform’s $1 million commitment project which will be spearheaded by Randi Zuckerberg.

Okcoin’s CMO, Haider Rafique made supporting statements on the platform’s commitment project by assuring that Okcoin is committed to breaking gender inequality before the end of 2025. Rafique pressed on the importance and significance of more women in the industry which he believes will take the crypto industry to greater heights.
