This is a fine question. We live in a world where women generally take the back seats when it comes to innovation and technology. The situation is even more worrisome in Asia and Africa.
Today, we see fewer number of women getting involved in cryptocurrencies and the blockchain. The following are some of the things that need to be done to get more women involved.
There is an urgent need to campaign for more participation of women and their inclusion in the disruptive economy of the future - cryptos. The campaign can happen on the social media, mass media, and through peer to peer network.
- Targeting Prominent Women
There should be deliberate efforts made to get prominent women and influencers such as Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce, Rihanna, Serena Williams, etc involved in crypto. These women have great followings that can be deployed in the inclusion of women in cryptos.
- Mass Education
There is a growing need to educate and empower women, especially in patriarchal societies. Only an educated woman can understand cryptos. This makes education compulsory and not an optional matter.
Airdrops are usually done by start ups to distribute tokens. Unfortunately, men are usually on the center stage. Therefore, to include women, airdrops should be more open and attractive to women, so that the few ones who are already involved in cryptos will have reasons to remain.
In conclusion, women are the bedrocks of society and they deserve to be involved in the waves of cryptos that will sweep the global economy of the future.
In the world of cryptocurrency, women are shockingly underrepresented, even compared to the overwhelmingly male tech sector as a whole. According to Google Analytics data as of June 2018, 91.2 percent of individuals engaged in the bitcoin community are men.
Cryptocurrencies are digital assets that are secured by cryptography and registered on a public blockchain. A blockchain is a distributed ledger that records transactions publicly and securely. Because it is distributed, it is not managed by a centralized entity, such as a bank or technology company. Blockchain technology eliminates the middleman, allowing transactions to occur directly between two people. The most prominent cryptocurrencies, like bitcoin, have focused on payments, but blockchain technology can be used to facilitate computation, storage, and many other cases. This technology has the potential to revolutionize many elements of our lives, in finance and beyond, though some are skeptical of its long-term viability.
So far, women have played only a minor role in shaping the applications of blockchain technology.
Introduce them to steemit platform. As most of them makes posts on other social media platforms. Make them know that they could earn cryptocurrency engaging on steemit.
By the time they onboard steemit, they will learn and know more about cryptocurrency.
It worked for me because my knowledge about cryptocurrency has grown and keeps growing because of my engagement on steemit platform.
I have been able to hodl other cryptocurrencies apart from steem or sbd lately.
I watch growth of these cryptos and I am not disappointed about involving myself in crypto. I wished I had this knowledge earlier but it's not too late because compared within my circle, I am among the few that are involved in cryptocurrency.
So the idea is to make them start earning and hodling for **free** without investing in it and after understanding it, they can invest in it if they like.
