IWB announced the latest collaboration in an official press release Thursday. According to the press release, the partnership aims to promote gender diversity in the Web3 scene by incentivizing and encouraging women’s participation. Moreover, the initiative aims to foster diversity in all aspects of the field beyond just gender.

Per information from a Forbes report, a study from December 2021 revealed that only 5 out of the 141 crypto-focused entities surveyed had female founders, underscoring the need for female participation in the sector.

This Partnership to Leverage NowPayments

NowPayments is a non-custodial payment gateway that allows businesses and individuals to accept crypto payments quickly and securely. It supports over 160 assets, including Bitcoin, Shiba Inu, and Ethereum. The partnership will leverage NowPayments as a conduit for further contributions. A NowPayments donation button has already been embedded on the IWB website.

The partnership initiated By Shytoshi Kusama

The partnership was initiated with the fund recently introduced by Shytoshi Kusama. As previously reported, the fund initiatives aimed at empowering female participation in Shibarium started with Kusama’s $25,000 contribution.

Following contributions from several entities, including NFA Labs, Marcie Jastrow, Lisa Watts Sherri Cuono, and Unification, the fund now boasts $50,000. This resulting partnership will attempt to bolster the Shibwomen numbers.

Kusama recently called attention to the collaboration, emphasizing its significance to the growth of the Shiba Inu community, especially in terms of female participation.

Xena Kash, CEO at NowPayments, remarked:

“As a female CEO, I am excited and honored to have this chance to help onboard more women to the blockchain, as well as spread awareness around those already there. It’s great to see our donation solution making waves in the SHIB community.”
