Diversity and the Blockchain

Two of my favorite things are coming together at the MIT Media Lab (another favorite of mine).

The Media Lab is hosting a bootcamp on blockchain technologies for underrepresented minorities and women.

The blog post announcing this event is here.

I will reblog the top part of that post:

The MIT Digital Currency Initiative is excited to announce a week-long intensive bootcamp covering key cryptocurrency concepts for women and underrepresented minority (URM) students. The event will take place at the MIT Media Lab August 21–26, 2016. The Kapor Center for Social Impact and Xapo have generously donated $70,000 to cover each student’s flights, hotel and other expenses to cover the cost of the bootcamp.

To apply for the program, click here. NOTE: all applications are due by July 11th.

If you are in their target group and want to work in the blockchain sector, this has your name written all over it. Make sure to apply by July 11th.
