On a discussion around women role models, Meta VP quipped that Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto who remains pseudo-anonymous to date could very well be a woman. She explained:

“I will give you one- Satoshi Nakamoto, I mean we all assume it’s a man right, is that our bias? It’s just a name it could well be a woman.”

Cornèr added that she believes the creator of Bitcoin is a group of people comprising of males and females rather than an individual.

Sandra Rao, GBBC CEO on the future of women in web3:

“I am very bullish on women’s future. We are in an era of collaboration irrespective of borders and countries. We need to support woman entrepreneurs from all walks of life.”
