Women can keep pace with the fast-changing world across business, commerce, and technology. With an emerging reputation of being early adopters rather than simply following tech trends that were once traditionally being led by men, women in today’s IT world are known for their vision, aspiration, and innovation in building brands and business models centered around technology.
Blockchain, an emerging technology that has considerably gained traction across industries is looking to be the foundational platform that will redefine the 2020s decade as it will reshape business and information systems. Its benefits include automation of processes, non-centralized ledgers, transparency, security through cryptographic encryption, and optimal operating conditions that will take businesses to new levels of cost-efficiency.
This week just right after the celebration of Women’s Month, DynaQuest, in partnership with BitPinas and the Philippine Blockchain Association, bring some of the Philippines’ biggest Blockchain women influencers who are driving blockchain to new heights and building new business models centered around the groundbreaking technology. These women of Blockchain are trailblazers in tech to embrace the possibilities within the disruption.
The future is bright with Blockchain, filled with potential and it will reward those that are bold, creative thinkers, and those having the vision and passion to mold tech into a centerpiece across the enterprise.

Blockchain Influencers is an unranked assessment of professional women who are immersed in the Blockchain industry. Blockchain is an expansive field and there is more room for new innovators to make a name for themselves. We hope this article series encourages other women to become influencers and inspire many others. Our influencers have displayed leadership, influence, initiative, management and vision. They are all also from different fields: tech companies, startups, non-profit organizations, consortiums, and professional associations, with different backgrounds in technology, management, business development, and science. This initiative aims to inspire more women to consider a career or build a business model in Blockchain, while also promoting Blockchain and its equal opportunities to everyone who would invest time, effort, and innovation in further developing the technology for the future.
