Insights from the Heart of Blockchain Australia

We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Amy-Rose Goodey, the dynamic Chief Operating Officer at Blockchain Australia.

In our conversation, we explored her journey in the Web3 space, her insights into the industry, and her advice for aspiring professionals.

So, Amy-Rose, could you share with us who are your must follows in the industry to stay up to date?

"Well, I keep a close eye on Blockchain Australia, Mark Monfort, Steve Vallas, Anthony Day, Victor Dominello. 

What resources were pivotal in starting your career?

"It was less about tools and more about people. Having a supportive partner and family made all the difference. They were my real starting point."

Everyone's talking about Web3. What’s your bold take on its future?

"Let's take a broader perspective. Web3 is indeed a significant component, but it's just one aspect of the emerging digital economy. This broader landscape encompasses distributed ledger technology (blockchain/DAG), artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and quantum computing (among other things). Together, these elements are forging a new paradigm in how we interact with technology and conduct business. Web3, with its decentralised approach, plays a key role, yet it's the synergy among all these technologies that's truly transformative. As we move forward and evolve, this integrated approach is set to redefine industries, enhance user experiences, and open up a realm of new opportunities in a dynamic, interconnected digital world."

You've been involved in some amazing projects. Is there one that stands out for you?

"Managing Blockchain Week three years in a row, usually with just a team of four, was is an extraordinary challenge. The event is always significant due to the intricacies involved in managing a week-long event that caters to a broad spectrum of the blockchain community, including all our members, stakeholders, government, and beginners. I am currently in the throws of building out Blockchain Week 2024 to be held in June, this one will be a ripper and unlike the years preceding."

What excites you the most about working in the Web3 space?

"What excites me the most about working in the Web3 space is the sense of being at the forefront of a digital revolution. We're in the early stages, laying the foundational 'plumbing' of a new digital world. It's thrilling to think that we're not just building technologies and frameworks, but we're crafting the digital environment that our children and future generations will inhabit. It's about creating something enduring and impactful, shaping how the digital world will function and how people will interact with it. To me, that's not just exciting; it's a profound responsibility and an incredible opportunity to make a lasting difference."

What do you find to be the most challenging aspect of working in Web3, and how do you navigate these challenges?

"One of the biggest challenges has been overcoming the years of scepticism and associations with crime and the dark web. We've always been a legitimate industry, and now the world is starting to see that. It feels like we're going through a rebranding, shifting perceptions to highlight the real potential and ethical applications of this technology. This change is key for our industry's future."

What advice would you give to other women aspiring to enter and make an impact in the Web3 industry?

"Find something within this space that you're incredibly passionate about, something that excites you so much that you can't contain yourself. Immerse yourself in it every day; learn it, live it, breathe it. Become an expert in that area. Then, when you're ready, get on your soapbox and make sure the world knows about it too. Share your knowledge, your excitement, and your vision. It's this combination of deep passion and active advocacy that truly makes a difference."

Our chat with Amy-Rose highlighted the intricacies of the Web3 world and the passion and dedication needed to thrive in it. Her journey is a testament to the power of support, continuous learning, and staying at the forefront of innovation.
