Please join us for a special Wharton women breakfast meeting to discuss the World of Crypto and its impact.  We will have some light snacks and enjoy a presentation by Wharton alums, Jasmine Jia WG21 and Mayanka Melville WG07.


In this special session, we will discuss the keys to understanding blockchain, bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, what are the benefits and risks of these new assets, trends to watch for in the quickly shifting sector and how will the trend toward web 3.0 and decentralized finance impact our lives.


Whether you are new to crypto or an expert in the sector, there will be something for you in this session. We hope you will join us to learn more about the Crypto markets and to network with other fabulous Wharton women!
