Rhian Lewis and Magda Loch founded London Women in Bitcoin in 2014 to provide a friendly space for women to meetup to discuss and learn more about cryptocurrencies. Neha Murarka joined in the summer of 2015 and together, we have been trying to grow this community. Since then we have expanded to cover blockchain in general as well.
Women from all sorts of backgrounds are welcome to the meetups. We try to structure the evenings in such a way that attendees can ask about the technology, learn new things about it and participate in some discussions. We welcome men as well but we would appreciate it if they are accompanied by women and/or have a genuine interest in helping the bitcoin/blockchain community grow amongst women.
