She (256) will help women enter the world of virtual currencies

She(256) is a new scheme that is focussed on helping to encourage women to enter the cryptocurrency job market. The aim of the programme is to enable female students to benefit from the guidance of crypto OG, as well as to provide invaluable technical and business experience.

A University of California and Berkeley-led initiative, She(256) will present a chance for students and early-career young adults to learn from each other through serving as guides and allies.

The world of cryptocurrency, particularly when it comes to those being employed within it, is a somewhat male-dominated industry. Each woman that takes part in the programme will be assigned with a well-known and knowledgeable crypto expert as a mentor who will guide them through making their way into the sector.

Jill Carson tweeted about the project:

“Dear men of crypto, I would love to see many of you sign up to be She(256) mentors too! Many of you have been the most important mentors and influences in my career. It matters more than you know when you support your female colleagues,” 

Finding direction and career opportunities within the space can be daunting for many, especially when such a gender disparity exists. Through the use of mentors, young, professional women can identify areas of interest and seek out new career opportunities that they may not have been able to observe before.

Guidelines of the programme include connecting with the mentor via phone or in person 1-3 times a month, as well as maintaining regular contact via email. She(65) will also organise meet-ups and networking events where they can meet other like-minded individuals within the field. Mentorships run officially for a period of a year, but communication is encouraged even after the official programme has finished.

London Fintech Week discussed women’s involvement in this space

During London Fintech Week which took place between the 6th and 13th July, brought experts in the blockchain, fintech and crypto industry together to discuss issues about the new fintech technologies.

At the moment, Fintech is surging in popularity. Many financial sectors are embarking on Blockchain based technologies to keep up with this growing industry. Although blockchain is looked at as a field controlled by men, a number of women started to involve themselves in the Blockchain industry. In fact, one of the key panel discussions spoke about, ‘Women in Blockchain’.

Women in Blockchain

Since the blockchain industry is growing at a steady pace, only a small percentage of women work in the sector.  However, a substantial interest has been noticed in women joining the blockchain revolution. In a panel, made up of women involved in blockchain discussed ways how more women need and can be involved in the industry. They also mentioned the need for men in the industry to support women by creating more opportunities for them.

Women are attending many Blockchain and Fintech conferences, participating in hackathons being organised. The main aim of these women is to explore new areas in the sector and networking with possible partners for their company they represent.

At the moment we are seeing a number of women setting up their projects, one woman, in particular, is the co-founder of Neufund Zoe Adamovicz. Moreover, a substantial shift is seen within the fintech sector, with more women working alongside men, while others are known leaders in the industry.

One other point the panel emphasised was that the blockchain industry needs more women to be empowered and engage in this ever-expanding industry. Although the technology and financial industry are dominated by men, women from an integrated part with this dynamic space. Women are also the game changers to this ever-growing industry and should actively participate in the Blockchain revolution!

How can women better Bitcoin

How can women better Bitcoin?

Over the next two years, a large amount of capital could come flowing into the cryptocurrency ecosystem.  According to research from the London Block Exchange, whilst traditionally women have steered clear of the sector, we are now beginning to see a bigger interest from female investors.

Women in crypto

Women represent a huge chunk of the market, yet so far, they have only made up a small fraction of cryptocurrency investors at around 8.5% of the market share. The sentiment amongst women is changing, however, and over the last 6 months, the number of women that are considering investing in Bitcoin has doubled to 13%. These statistics are even more encouraging when we look at the numbers of millennial women that are considering investing – an impressive one in five.

The impact that these numbers could have on the industry is huge. By the year 2020, it is expected that women will hold around $70 trillion of private wealth and these numbers are expected to increase as more women take leading positions in the working world.

It is highly likely that this will lead to a change in the way in which cryptocurrencies behave. Studies have repeatedly shown that women are a lot more strategic when it comes to their investment methods. On the other hand, men tend to be more likely to take a risk and take a gambling approach to trading. A big pool of long-term investors such as women could help to significantly stabilise the Bitcoin market.

Make their presence known

As women represent around 50% of the global population, it is important that they start to make their presence known in the cryptocurrency market. It is only through mainstream adoption that the market will grow and we need women to ensure this is achieved. But women can contribute far more than just capital, their skills are needed in the fields of blockchain technology and cryptocurrency as well.

A company called Localcoin has created a series of initiatives that are geared towards encouraging women to get involved in cryptocurrency and blockchain markets. For example, Women in Crypto is a Toronto based conference that works towards attracting women and educating them to take part in this technological revolution. With a panel of established female stakeholders, it aims to create an open and friendly environment for beginners to get to grips with Bitcoin and the tech behind it. We need to see more of these events globally, and locally to encourage more and more women to involve themselves in this sector.
