“For most of history, Anonymous was a women.”
Author Virginia Woolf likely never imagined concepts like Twitter or bitcoin, but that’s exactly whosewords were used to promote Bitcoin Women’s Day last week. Woolf’s famous words anchored a social media campaign last week (March 8) aimed at highlighting exactly what it suggests: bitcoin usage and women.
Reports suggest that only 5 percent of those involved in the digital currency community are women. But of course, like some of the elements of the cryptocurrency itself, that figure may be hard to really know. What makes it harder to track is the fact that bitcoin — still very much in its infancy — remains a small community, members of which aren’t always outwardly vocal about their investment or affinity for the digital currency.
But there’s a new cause being sprouted from one active woman in the bitcoin community — Sarah Martin, who recently took her love for bitcoin and tied it into an already established holiday (International Women’s Day) to create the first Bitcoin Women’s Day event.
