Isle of Man based bitcoin exchange, CoinCorner, will be hosting “An Introduction to Bitcoin for Women” talk at their office on Thursday 30th November 2017.
The talk has been organised by the company’s female staff members in order to encourage more women to get involved and learn about bitcoin.
Bitcoin is a hot topic at the moment, having seen exponential growth since the beginning of the year. Public interest is growing rapidly as more people explore the world of digital currency, however, the majority of interest still comes from men.
Molly Spiers, marketing manager at CoinCorner and one of the women organising the talk, said:
“When I joined CoinCorner in 2015, I was quite surprised to find that I was the only female employee in the company. I soon discovered that a lack of women in the bitcoin industry was not uncommon. It is intimidating at first, but I’ve been nothing but welcomed and encouraged in the space.
The industry is notoriously male-dominated, which unfortunately means that women often shy away from getting involved. By putting on this talk, we hope that it will encourage women to come along and learn about bitcoin in a relaxed environment.
Over the last couple of years, female interest in bitcoin has increased, however it still remains a minority.
The good news though is that in the last 6 months, we’ve welcomed 3 more wonderful women to the CoinCorner team who will be joining me in hosting the talk.”
Places are limited so it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
“An Introduction to Bitcoin for Women” will take place at CoinCorner’s office in Victory House on Thursday 30th November from 5:30pm. For more information or to book your place, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
