A non-profit organization in India has announced a new cryptocurrency-mining program aimed at the rural youth. More specifically, the initiative is aiming to empower the country’s most impoverished, a demographic that mostly consists of a particular caste known as ‘Dalits’. Individuals belonging the Dalit community are often subjected to extreme discrimination from the moment they are born, leaving them with no choice but to lead a life of poverty.
The Dalit Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (DICCI) is spearheading the program with the help of a cryptocurrency-related platform, Mahabfic, and social entrepreneur, Dr. Tausif Malik. According to DICCI and Mahabfic, the collaboration will result in the ‘world’s first and largest Bitcoin Mining Training Program (BMTP) for self-employment.’
