Top Bitcoin Educator Let’s The Crypto Community Know How He Feels About “Booth Babes”

Andreas Antonopoulos Calls For The Ban Of “Booth Babes”

Recently, one of the most prominent faces in the crypto ecosystem Andreas Antonopoulos expressed his distaste towards marketing strategy of employing marketing campaign “booth babes.”

Booth babes is a term used to refer to women employed by brands to staff booths at trade shows. Booth babes are paid to dress in sexually revealing clothing for the purpose of enticing men to come over to the booth, and ideally, view and buy the products being advertised. Booth babes are frequently required to wear clothing that is demeaning and behave in a manner welcoming of the people sexually objectifying them. This usually includes posing for pictures with male attendees that showcase how much the men are enjoying the sexually attractive traits of the booth babe.

Marion Vogel, director at eternity, had earlier said:

“The crypto scene started off as a male-dominated space and probably will be this way for a while. That’s okay, but let’s also put an emphasis on not only welcoming women to the space but also on having them prove and demonstrate their skills. I believe every talented person will find a home in crypto, regardless of gender.”

At the recently held Blockchain Week 2019 Hong Kong Andreas mourned:

“Ugh, Blockchain attracts the worst people and the worst in people. I was invited to this conference. This right here would have been a breach of contract if they allowed it. Good to know, adding the organizers to the blackest of blacklists. Speakers in blockchain: you can (should) prohibit this kind of behavior in your contract.”

One of the main organizers at the event NexChange says:

“I am the main organizer of Hong Kong Blockchain Week and we have no idea about the hiring of Russian Models. Someone out there is hijacking our event to promote false information. We make every effort to promote women and blockchain and have created content and panels to support women in technology. This is totally false and we do not condone this type of activity.”

However, Antonopoulos doubled down on his position and said:

“It’s about the conference not establishing a code of conduct that prohibits ‘booth babe’ marketing by sponsors. My contract requires that code of conduct (adopted, published and enforced) explicitly.”
