SHIB the Metaverse has now partnered with The International Women of Blockchain (IWB), an inclusive DEI Web3 hybrid event focused on honouring and empowering women in the blockchain ecosystem and NOWPayments, a gateway for accepting crypto payments, making donations as well as conduct payouts in over 160+ cryptocurrencies.
Through their partnership, SHIB The Metaverse, IWB, and NOWPayments are working to ensure that Web3 is welcoming to all genders and nationalities. By increasing diversity – from users to coders to CEOs – the decentralised community will grow faster and reach far greater heights through inclusion.
Olayinka Odeniran, chief creative director of IWB said, “In our efforts to build diversity in Web3 and metaverse, we are excited that the #ShibArmy is throwing their full support to onboarding more women into Web3.”
“There is nothing better than to have a strong, powerful, and supportive community take notice of your efforts to build a diverse future. As the Executive Director of Black Women in Blockchain, I am thrilled to partner with SHIB to increase the army of #Shibwomen and to use NOWPayments, a female-led crypto payment platform, as our source for donations,” Odeniran continued.
The partnership was sparked by a $25,000 contribution to a new fund that was established by Shiba Inu’s lead developer Shytoshi Kusama. The fund, which also benefits IWB, has now reached over $50,000.
Xena Kash, CEO of NOWPayments said, “As a female CEO, I am excited and honoured to have this chance to help onboard more women to blockchain, as well as spread awareness around those already there. It’s great to see our donation solution making waves in the SHIB community and going on to help involve more women in the space. From NOWPayments, I can say almost all our key roles are held by women — and we need more female CEOs in crypto!”
SHIB The Metaverse also recently announced that it will be built on top of Shibarium, Shiba Inu’s forthcoming Ethereum Layer 2 (L2) blockchain.
