Rachel Siegel, also known as CryptoFinally, says that she and two fellow female crypto influencers, known as TechWithCatalina and GirlGoneCrypto, were deplatformed from Instagram following their criticism.
Siegel has been very vocal about underrepresentation of women in the crypto industry. She noted that out of 25 award nominees, she is the only female:
“I have been very local about the fact that there is a gender disparity in the cryptocurrency community and people are not happy with that. They have never been happy with talking about feminist values. So what we know is that the people who were removed were me, GirlGoneCrypto and TechWithCatalina.”
Nominees for the Binance Influencer Awards were apparently determined by both the community and the Binance team.
