Celo Kenya Weekly Recap
Diversity in Web3
Web3 is being touted as the future of the internet – introducing new concepts from the metaverse through to DeFi (decentralized finance) and augmented by other blockchain technology such as NFTs (non-fungible tokens). It also promises greater user participation and online communities that no longer rely on a handful of tech companies. Some fundamental barriers to increasing participation in Web3 relate to diversity and Inclusion. In this twitter space, we hosted Betty Waitherero from Azima Finance, Telos Foundation, and Green Trace to delve into Diversity in Web3. We touched on the general diversity and Inclusion in Web3, barriers to increasing participation and diversity in Web3, what can be done to spark and trigger more inclusivity in the ecosystem, how to welcome new users from web 2 and keep them engaged in the web 3, and how the inclusion of web3 has benefited education and industrial development.
