CoinCorner To Host “Bitcoin For Women” Talk [PRESS RELEASE]


CoinCorner To Host "Bitcoin For Women" Talk

Douglas, Monday 13th November 2017


Isle of Man based bitcoin exchange, CoinCorner, will be hosting “An Introduction to Bitcoin for Women” talk at their office on Thursday 30th November 2017.


The talk has been organised by the company’s female staff members in order to encourage more women to get involved and learn about bitcoin.

Bitcoin is a hot topic at the moment, having seen exponential growth since the beginning of the year. Public interest is growing rapidly as more people explore the world of digital currency, however, the majority of interest still comes from men.


Molly Spiers, marketing manager at CoinCorner and one of the women organising the talk, said:
“When I joined CoinCorner in 2015, I was quite surprised to find that I was the only female employee in the company. I soon discovered that a lack of women in the bitcoin industry was not uncommon. It is intimidating at first, but I’ve been nothing but welcomed and encouraged in the space.
The industry is notoriously male-dominated, which unfortunately means that women often shy away from getting involved. By putting on this talk, we hope that it will encourage women to come along and learn about bitcoin in a relaxed environment.
Over the last couple of years, female interest in bitcoin has increased, however it still remains a minority.
The good news though is that in the last 6 months, we’ve welcomed 3 more wonderful women to the CoinCorner team who will be joining me in hosting the talk.”


Places are limited so it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.


“An Introduction to Bitcoin for Women” will take place at CoinCorner’s office in Victory House on Thursday 30th November from 5:30pm. For more information or to book your place, please contact [email protected]

We've Increased Our Credit Card Limits

Back in October 2014, we introduced card payments for bitcoin, however, due to the high risk nature of credit card purchases (fraud, chargebacks), our customers have been limited to a £200/€200 deposit per 30-day rolling period.



Over the last 6 months, we have been working with our payment processor, developing and introducing measures to prevent fraud. Our hard work has paid off and we are happy to announce that we have increased our credit card limits.



£300/€300 limit for all credit cards
We have increased our credit card limits from £200/€200 to £300/€300 (per 30-day rolling period). Next time you log in to your CoinCorner account, your credit card limit will automatically be increased.




£1000/€1000 limit for all credit cards after initial bank transfer
We will increase your limit to £1000/€1000 (per 30-day rolling period) after you make a deposit to your CoinCorner account via bank transfer.
Log in to your CoinCorner account now to see your new credit card limit.

Bitcoin Hardfork

You may be aware of a number of recent proposals for technical changes to the Bitcoin network. All BTC stored with CoinCorner will remain safe during the potential events below.

There is a proposed hard fork which is scheduled for 25th October 2017. If this goes ahead it will create a separate blockchain and coin, currently being referred to as Bitcoin Gold. CoinCorner will not support the new blockchain or its associated coin.

Customer funds held with CoinCorner will be kept safe when the above events happen, however to ensure that funds stay safe, CoinCorner may temporarily disable some functionality 24 hours beforehand, and during the period where the activation is due to happen, until the situation becomes more clear. This means that customers will be unable to buy, sell, deposit or withdraw Bitcoin until we are comfortable (we hope this will take no longer than 24-48 hours, but it may take longer).

If you do not want to have access to any new coins that are a result of a UAHF, or do…
