The internship program at Blockchain Commons in 2022 will focus on Bitcoin and blockchain technology. As well as human-rights privacy and decentralized identification.
This year’s version of Blockchain Commons’ annual internship program will take place remotely during the summer months. This is according to the non-profit organization focused on Bitcoin and decentralized systems. Bitcoin and blockchain technology and human-rights privacy and advocacy are a few of the topics. It also includes decentralized identification are just a few of the topics the curriculum covers.
Who Can Apply?
A GitHub post announced the internship. Blockchain Commons founder Christopher Allen wrote they search for interns with a wide range of expertise. Not just software developers and hardware designers. But also pre-law students, library science students, and technical writers.”
At least a third of the work during the internship, according to Allen, will focus on tools and resources to assist activists around the world in using the correct technology for their everyday advocacy efforts.
As Allan pointed out, “this has been a long-held goal at Blockchain Commons, where we’re trying to safeguard people, not just money.” For the second year in a row, a grant from the Human Rights Foundation is putting this endeavor in the spotlight.
The basis of Blockchain Commons’ mission is creating and campaigning for open and secure digital infrastructure. Allen wants interns to be equipped with the knowledge and coaching they need to help the organization succeed in this area.
What is the Cost?
Interns can expect to gain a full understanding of open development. They can participate in weekly “office hours” dialogues with each other and industry experts from leading Bitcoin and advocacy companies such as Blockstream, HRF, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. They can also team up to create powerful open-source projects at the intersection of their passion and Blockchain Commons’ most pressing matters.
In a Twitter thread, Allen remarked they encourage interns to work collaboratively together. They train them how to function in the open-source environment. Past internship projects include our Spotbit pricing server. These also include Mori-cli app for Bitcoin inheritance and a pseudonymity tutorial.
Over the course of the three-month summer program, Blockchain Commons expects 40 hours of professional work from all interns. As well as two mentoring calls and a small stipend for those who fulfil the three milestones laid forth at the start. The application deadline is April 22.
