  • I studied Korean as my undergraduate major and I didn't touch math since I was 18 years old.

  • But now, I'm still leading a group of some of the smartest hackers in the world.

  • Hi, I'm Hope! I'm homeless, but not hopeless.

  • Hope travels around the world as the CEO of EximChain,

  • a blockchain technology start-up eliminating supply chain issues.

  • If I had been trading with you in the past six years or 10 years, you know that I've been

  • shipping goods on time and I've been shipping quality goods.

  • However, the record is only kept between you and me.

  • Hope's public blockchain allows everyone to see proof of a transaction,

  • but makes the details available only to the buyer and seller.

  • This ensures privacy - but could help small and medium businesses find a lot more customers as well.

  • The huge potential of blockchain technology is the reason why it's being called the next internet.

  • You may not know how it works, but just like the internet, it's going to bring about

  • serious consumer benefits, like more transparency and more options.

  • That's why worldwide spending on blockchain solutions is growing fast.

  • It's forecasted to reach $2.1 billion this year, more than double the $945 million spent last year.

  • Blockchain enthusiasts are so bullish on Hope's start-up

  • that she raised $20 million in funding, and turned down millions more.

  • But it wasn't an easy journey for this female CEO, particularly in the blockchain space.

  • Globally, the Unesco Institute for Statistics estimates

  • that less than 30% of the world's scientific researchers are women.

  • In the blockchain space, that statistic falls further.

  • Women reportedly make up just between four and six percent of people working in blockchain.

  • I felt, okay, as a woman I don't really want to be treated specially.

  • I want to get the same opportunity as other guys. However, I was questioned a lot.

  • I was meeting a very senior guy back in China, who has a lot of influential power in the industry.

  • So I was pitching him the idea. In the middle of conversation, he suddenly asked my male staff,

  • "Are you really sure this is what you want to do? She's a female CEO and she won't be able to make it."

  • Hope is one of the speakers at S/HE Blockchainers Asia, a Singapore-based blockchain community,

  • which invites only female speakers but welcomes everyone to attend.

  • Its organizer, Yuree Hong, invited Hope personally.

  • By having female experts to speak about the blockchain topic,

  • it really inspires other females to get interested in joining the group.

  • The group has about 500 members, and has chapters in Singapore, Seoul and Ho Chi Minh City.

  • Unlike most blockchain events, which have really low female turnout,

  • her events have a 30 to 40% female participation rate.

  • Yuree wants to grow the community of women in blockchain

  • and challenge the perception that there are few qualified women in the space.

  • So initially when, I told people that I'm going to have only female speakers,

  • people told me it was going to be difficult. But however, I found it not difficult at all.

  • Blockchain supporters are excited about the technology, not just because it could transform the global economy,

  • but also because of its potential to transform society through greater transparency and inclusion.

  • It's prompting blockchain conferences like this one

  • and other blockchain groups to partner with communities like S/HE Blockchainers Asia

  • to make sure that we see more female CEOs in the future of blockchain.

  • Hi, I'm Xin En. Thanks for watching.
