All e-currency careers are made for women. And men. E-currency is for all. In order to get e-currency in the mainstream, it has to be used by the general population. And right now, women aren’t involved with e-currency. Women need to get involved in this growing field.
There are a few ways women who are already trained in a particular career can join the e-currency movement easily. Or, if women are looking for ways to escape the tech-bro culture while still taking part in the e-currency movement, these are a few options:
Take Part Where You Are
Women can join the e-currency movement from their current jobs. Whether they are small business owners who want to accept bitcoin as payment or specialists who may see value in specializing in e-currency, we are moving towards a world where e-currency is part of the our commodity system.
Specializing your current career around e-currency can help you make more money or find an underserved audience. For example, barely anyone is paying taxes on their bitcoin gains and they may not know how, and specializing your existing knowledge in tax law around bitcoin could help people realize that virtual currency is property, not money. This can be very important for the 28 million bitcoin wallets worldwide that may not be playing taxes because they don’t understand it.
One of the biggest ways to get women involved isn’t just making it available or talking directly to them about how great e-currency is; it’s also vital to make women feel like valuable when they are trying to get involved. The North American Bitcoin Conference in January was held in a strip club and as e-currency joins the ranks of other big tech clubs, it takes part in the typical tech gender discrimination. Diving into the movement head-on would be a fantastic move for many women, but a safe workplace that provides an environment of success is vital when looking to hire female workers.
Women are late to the c-currency game. But unless they take part and e-currency goes mainstream, the bubble will pop. They can integrate e-currency into their small businesses or their current careers, or they can dive directly into the movement. But it’s vital to take part.
