Early adoption is essential to creating an equitable Web3 and ensuring women are leading the way."
In today’s digital industrial revolution, having an established digital identity is critical to women’s advancement in Web3, allowing for greater data security, privacy, and scalability. By providing women with Web3 domains, The FQ and Unstoppable Women will break down barriers to entry and encourage women to participate and excel in the Web3 community. In the months ahead, The FQ will continue to safeguard women’s place in Web3 by providing a series of digital domain onboarding events and a slate of programming to help women and leaders understand the "why" behind Web3.
"Unstoppable Women of Web3 was founded to ensure that the future of the Internet is accessible to everyone, including women and people from underrepresented communities," said Sandy Carter, SVP and Channel Chief for Unstoppable Women of Web3. "This new partnership with The FQ helps us to reach more women and diverse groups on Web3 and the Metaverse."
This news comes on the heels of The FQ’s entrance into the Metaverse and its collaboration with Decentraland as its official Equality Partner.
