Okcoin Makes $1M to Increase Crypto Women’s Access, Randi Zuckerberg Joins The Inaugural Brand Advisor Council

Okcoin, one of the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency platforms, today announced that it is kicking off the next phase of its mission to make the crypto industry more inclusive through the launch of a $1 million commitment to bring more women into crypto. Okcoin has also named Randi Zuckerberg as the first member of its brand advisory board. Her primary role will be to help the company achieve the 50% target of having 50% of female customers by 2025.

Zuckerberg is an entrepreneur. He also has a bestselling book, is an investor and is the founder of Zuckerberg Media. The council will include advising on projects like allocating contributions, increasing women’s participation in crypto, supporting women-run cryptocurrency projects and programs, as well as sponsoring female-run blockchain technology program.

“It’s been a passion for mine to inspire, support, and lead women in technology, investment, leadership, and it’s something I’m excited to continue to do as a member Okcoin’s brand advisory committee.”
said Zuckerberg.

The potential for cryptocurrency to be a huge force in creating an equitable financial system is immense. It’s an honour to participate in Okcoin’s mission to build a better future.
Crypto is inclusive by design — permissionless, decentralized currency not only defies geographic borders, it democratizes the opportunity to build wealth regardless of geography, gender, or any other factor. While many women have advanced in the industry and become widely respected leaders, it’s still heavily male dominated. A recent survey found that cryptocurrency is a popular investment choice for twice the number of men than women. This gap in cryptocurrency investing is even larger than what exists between men and women when it comes to traditional investments, such as mutual funds, individual stocks and real estate.

Okcoin plans to alter this dynamic by creating initiatives that make crypto markets more accessible for women, and other people who have been left behind in the traditional financial system.

Okcoin plans to increase access to cryptocurrency’s wealth-creating advantages. To do this, it will also expand its brand advisory board with more members who are committed to equity and inclusion.

“Historically, financial institutions have kept women and those from other economically marginalized communities out of their traditional systems. This norm is being flipped by cryptocurrency, which offers wealth-creating opportunities through decentralized finance. However, we are still seeing lower adoption from women.”
Hong Fang is the CEO Okcoin.

We are committed to making crypto more inclusive with our $1M investment and dedicated brand advisory board.
As we strive to have 50% of our customers be women, “We are breaking down gender barriers. Being a long-standing crypto worker, I feel this goal is crucial. As we build a better future in finance, I view this as an obvious focus. We make our products more accessible than ever before and create a brand that is more friendly for everyone.
said Okcoin CMO Haider Rafique.
