AMSTERDAMSeptember 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ —

  • Following the success of the inaugural awards, the Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards 2019 are now open for global entries at http://www.techplaymakerawards.com
  • Winners will be announced at aawards ceremony in London, UK, on March 13th, 2019 
  • As part of Booking.coms commitment to drive awareness of gender diversity in the global technology sector, the awards shine a light on women making an impact with technology and inspiring future female tech leaders 
  • Over one in two (52%) women working in technology or students interested in the field say a lack of visible role models or mentors across the global tech sector is a major barrier to entry, according to new Booking.com research.

Today, Booking.com, one of the world’s largest travel e-commerce companies launched the Technology Playmaker Awards 2019. Introduced by Booking.com in 2017, the awards aim to recognise and celebrate women who are pushing the boundaries of innovation in technology and inspiring future generations of female technology leaders to do the same. This year, the awards are open to nominations from any country, to spotlight the diversity of talent in the global technology sector and encourage more girls and women worldwide to enter and succeed in the field. Nominations can be submitted at http://techplaymakerawards.com, in any language, before December 22nd, 2018.

Technology Playmaker AwardsWinners will be selected in seven distinct award categories, each of which celebrates a different aspect of achievement in technology: Role Model, Young Technologist, Business Leader, Digital Leader, Employer Award, Community Impact Award and Tech Innovator. The awards are open to women at all levels in any technology or IT-related field who are disrupting or transforming business, industry or communities using technology. The Employer Award recognises an organisation that has made significant progress in achieving gender diversity and inclusion in IT and technology.

The overall Booking.com Technology Playmaker of the Year 2019 will be chosen from among the individual category winners, and will be the person who our judging panel of industry leaders, politicians and academics consider to have made the most impactful change in the global technology sector. In identifying and championing remarkable examples of leadership, courage, ingenuity, tenacity and innovation in technology, the awards aim to empower the next generation of women to consider a career in tech and advance dialogue on the need for greater diversity. Each category winner will receive a monetary prize of €5,000 to help advance business and professional goals, with the overall winner collecting a €10,000 award.

“Encouraging more women to join and flourish in the tech sector is essential if innovation is to reflect and nurture the diverse communities that surround us. Creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce takes collaborative effort from companies, both inside and outside their own walls, as well as individuals whose example carries immense power to positively shape the collective destiny of this sector,” says Gillian Tans, Booking.com CEO.

“We need to create an environment in which more girls and women are encouraged to enter the field, and given more opportunities to advance, thrive and succeed. While there is more work to be done, great strides are being made thanks to the kind of businesses, communities and individuals we seek to unearth and recognise through the Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards.”

New global research from Booking.com sheds light into the key barriers for women to enter in the tech sector. Over one in two (52%) women working in tech or students interested in the field say a lack of visible role models or mentors across the global tech sector is a major barrier to entry for women. Another half (50%) say they are held back because the opportunities for women to advance in technology are not made clear. These are the gender diversity challenges that Booking.com seeks to unearth and help address through this awards program and other related initiatives.

The 2018 Booking.com Technology Playmaker of the Year, Hadeel Ayoub, CEO and founder of BrightSign, was honored for developing a smart “sign-to-speech” glove that helps individuals with speech disabilities communicate more easily by converting sign language to computerised voice.

For the 2019 awards, she will join the judging panel alongside a range of tech leaders and champions from business, academia and politics.

“I truly believe in the power of bringing women together to network and celebrate one another in order to make the technology sector more diverse and gender-inclusive. I was delighted to be recognised by Booking.com at the 2018 Technology Playmaker Awards, bringing further attention to BrightSign and helping my team and I continue to follow our passion to help people with non-verbal disabilities,” says Hadeel. “I’m very much looking forward to working with the other judges, hearing the stories of women doing great things with technology around the world and identifying the 2019 Playmakers.”

The Technology Playmaker Awards 2018 attracted entries from inspirational female tech entrepreneurs and innovators across Europe, highlighting their achievements across technology fields such as ecommerce, fintech, green energy, education tech, blockchain and consumer tech.

The Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards 2019 will gather together luminaries, leaders and supporters of women in technology from around the world in London, UK, on March 13, 2019. Nominations for the awards will close on December 22, 2018

Along with this initiative, Booking.com will also be partnering with the Web Summit in Lisbon on November 5-8, 2018for a Women in Tech mentorship program.

Bitpunter.io Lists Licensed Bitcoin Casino and Betting Sites

Published

on

Bitpunter

Bitpunter.io is happy to announce the launch of our brand new Bitcoin Betting and Casino guide. Bitpunter.io has more than 40 Bitcoin Casino and Betting site reviews. All the listed sites are licensed and offer provably fair casino games. Crypto and Bitcoin owners like to have a Provably Fair gaming platform. Now they can enjoy their Fair games at licensed operators as well. We aim to list only the Provably Fair casino and Bitcoin betting sites with gaming licenses. 

All the listed Bitcoin Casino and Betting sites are: 

  1. Licensed in Curacao 
  2. Offers Bonuses in BTC 
  3. Has BTC as an account currency 
  4. Offers games from top providers like NetEnt, Evolution, and Ezugi or offers provably fair games
  5. Available to play from all over the World

BitPunterBitpunter.io gives you the best and most secure options to bet and gamble with your beloved Bitcoins. Betting and gambling with Bitcoin gives you great advantages such as anonymity and security. Our aim is to provide the best reviews of Bitcoin Casino and Bitcoin Betting sites and make your gambling experience as smooth as possible. We only list licensed Bitcoin Casino Sites with great bonuses and customer service. You can read our Casino Reviews and check out the games and bonuses they offer.

This way you will be able to have a comprehensive look on the Bitcoin gambling sector and decide where to use your Bitcoins for casino games and sports betting.

Bitpunter does Bitcoin Casino Site ratings according to 4 different criteria:

  1. 🔒  Trust & Fairness: The most important thing about a Bitcoin Casino Site is to know if you can trust the house. The first criteria here is the existence of Provably Fair games where you can be sure about the fairness of the game outcomes. We also rank more classical Bitcoin Casino Sites highly if they offer casino games from trusted providers like NetEnt, Microgaming, Evolution Gaming, and Ezugi. The second criterion about Trust is knowing that you will be able to withdraw your winnings. This is mostly about the casino site’s license as the licensing authorities is supposed to prevent the player funds and make sure they get paid out. We mostly prefer Curacao-based casinos.
  2. 🎰  Odds & Games: When it comes to the availability of a wide range of games, we take into account the Bitcoin Casinos working with top casino game providers. They are able to provide 100s of live and slots games with their deals. If we are ranking a Provably Fair casino site we know that the games are most probably made in-house. We allow those casinos to have simpler designs and still get good ratings. A Provably Fair casino site is respected if they have more than 5 games but there are still very good casinos like Wolf.bet with only 3 games or Primedice with only 1 game of Dice. When it comes to sports betting sites we make sure that they offer decent odds and bet types.
  3. 💰  Bonuses & Promotions: Our criteria are different for classical Bitcoin Casino Sites and Provably Fair Casino Sites. When it comes to classical Bitcoin Casino Sites, we expect them to give away hefty sign-up bonuses even tough it is supposed to be wagered 40 times. 40 times wagering is considered a fair amount of wagering as these sites are casinos not charities. When it comes to Provably Fair Casino Sites we do not expect them to give away juicy bonuses as they work on very low house margins like 1%. We focus on promotions, hourly-daily-weekly-monthly tournaments and give aways. Loyalty bonuses and cashback offers become more important at Provably Fair casinos.
  4.   Customer Support: Offering customer support was almost unthinkable when the first Bitcoin Dice and Bitcoin Casino sites started. They usually came with on-site chat sections where users had to communicate with each other and hope for solutions. Thanks to the increasing demands of crypto gamblers and higher competition in the market, we are now able to get proper Customer Support with proper tools like Live Chat and Email. We take getting good customer support and showing respect to the users very seriously. We also take a look at the BitcoinTalk forum where we check how the operators respond to fellow gamblers and how likely they are to solve their problems.

Mission of Bitpunter.io

Our aim is to provide up-to-date information on all licensed Bitcoin Betting and Bitcoin Casino sites. I know that those Bitcoins are very valuable for every HODLer and we want to be sure about the safety of our funds when we bet or gamble with them. That is why I have gathered all the licensed Bitcoin Gambling sites and reviewed them for you. You can find both the Pros and Cons of every reviewed site and make your own calculated decisions. You can contact us through our website Bitpunter.io if you have any questions:
