“Crypto is for the oppressed”

In 2016, Ariel Wengroff produced Woman by Gloria Steinem, an acclaimed documentary series on violence against women. Six years later, here she is at Ledger, in charge of writing the story of this French champion of Web3 security.

You were one of the very prominent American producers. Why did you join Ledger?

When I was working in the media, I saw the emergence of the creator economy. And it seemed very clear to me that Web 2.0 did not offer the necessary infrastructure to allow these creators to take full advantage of their content. Web3 is the future of this economy. Blockchain has the ability to reward communities for their participation.

Can Web3 include those that Web1 and 2.0 left out?

Crypto and Web3 are for the underdog. The loudest voices today may be those of people with more resources, but the truth is that many cryptocurrency users never had a chance in the system before. current financial. Simply because it is designed against them.

A more accessible Web, what does it mean?

By two important points. First we must continue to create products that are accessible and easy to use. At Ledger, we are working on this subject, in particular to ensure that, depending on your physical abilities, you can always see our screens or use our buttons. The second point is education and particularly free education. We thus entered into a partnership with The Sandbox, where we created a game [School of Block]. Through it, we issued almost 100,000 certifications in less than two months, which means that 100,000 more people have understood how to participate in Web3 and stay safe.
