Best Practices for Working Remotely


There’s no one-size-fits-all formula. Everyone has different work styles. Different times at which they work. Different work locations. Different time zones.
Even though the rise of remote work isn’t a new trend, many people are still figuring out how to work remotely through trial and error, doing their best to stay happy and productive. The challenges exist both for those who are remote work veterans and people who are just getting started.
And it’s not just people, companies struggle at making remote work too.
What’s the key to getting remote work right?
we wanted to understand everything we could about working remotely. Including its challenges, how people feel about it, and the best ways to work remotely. Plus people’s tips and best practices for working remotely.
Why do people love remote work?
It’s flexible. The lack of commute. The reduction of distractions. The ability to travel and live anywhere, including outside of major cities. The increased productivity. And of course the ability to be closer to one’s family.
But even though most people love working remotely, remote work has a lot of challenges. It’s easy to fall into many of the traps of remote work, especially if you’re new to it.
We asked people “What is your #1 challenge with remote work?”
  • Communication topped the list, with 27% of people mentioning it as their #1 challenge. Remote work makes it harder to read body language, hear what people are saying, ask follow up questions in the hallway, or quickly ask a coworker for clarification at their desk.
  • Lacking social opportunities was the second-largest challenge cited by participants. Office culture doesn’t exist when there’s no office. That’s why people struggle with the lack of social opportunities, like grabbing drinks with coworkers.
  • Loneliness and isolation was the third most-cited challenge. Sitting at home alone day after day can leave you sapped of energy and feeling down. A few survey participants even mentioned not quite feeling like they were part of the company.
Here are ways to ensure you succeed at remote work in spite of its challenges based on everything we learned. You’ll find tips and best practices from people who are working remotely.

How social distancing can help to stop Coronavirus

As endeavors to stop the spread of COVID-19 raise far and wide, consideration has gone to how people and networks can secure one another. The ailment, brought about by a newfound coronavirus, has advanced over each mainland, other than Antarctica. The exhortation from wellbeing specialists has been consistent: Wash your hands and don't contact your face. Yet, progressively stringent measures are being recommended by clinical specialists, including expanding social separating and confining mass get-togethers, trying to "straighten the bend." What does that mean?

LG CNS, a subsidiary of South Korean LG Corporation that supplies information technology services, has recently launched its own blockchain-powered service, local Yonhap News Agency reports Sunday, May 13.
LG CNS’ own blockchain platform “Monachain” has been designed to enable blockchain-based logistics in the fields of finance, manufacturing, and communication, according to Yonhap.
One of the main deployments of Monachain provides a digital authentication system, as well as a digital currency, and a digital supply chain management tool. As the local source reports, Monachain enables a new type of identification, a decentralized identifier (DID), that can be used for personal identification and online payments via smart devices.
Monachain also allows users to open a digital wallet and conduct financial operations. According to the report, LG CNS is seeking agreement with domestic banks to bring its digital currency business to a wider audience. A representative of LG CNS commented:
"Even further, Monachain can help business owners boost productivity as the company provides a digital supply chain management system that enables suppliers to manage the entire production processing efficiently."
In May 2017, LG CNS partnered with R3, a blockchain consortium made up of over 200 firms.

how-many-women-in-blockchain-and-crypto

The percentage of women invested and involved in cryptocurrency is far lower than that of men. This could be confirmed by numerous surveys and research studies. Moreover, incidents like the North American Bitcoin Conference, where only 3 of the 88 speakers were women and the conference after party was held at a strip club, show a disparity trend present in the industry.
Recently, there has been a push to get more women involved in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. Initiatives like Mogul’s “Women in Crypto” events and organizations like the Women in Blockchain Foundation have been making an effort to get more women involved in the blockchain and crypto space.
So what exactly do the participation statistics reveal, and what could women do to get more involved in the emerging blockchain and cryptocurrency industries?

Disparity in involvement

According to Coin.dance, as of May 2018, 94.73 percent of Bitcoin community engagement and active participation comes from men and 5.27 percent from women.

In Oct. 2017, a survey conducted by Reddit user loveYouEth, found that 96 percent of Ether users are men, and MyEtherWallet reported that 84 percent of their wallet holders were male.
Image source: Twitter @MyEtherWallet
The discrepancy between a number of men and women involved in cryptocurrency could possibly be explained by a study titled “Risk and Reward Are Processed Differently in Decisions Made Under Stress”. The study found that “stress amplifies gender differences in strategies during risky decisions, with males taking more risk and females less risk under stress”. This could be a reason why there are fewer women than men involved in Blockchain and cryptocurrency. Careers in banking and finance sometimes involve making risky decisions in situations that can induce stress.
In an article regarding risk-taking, leadership consultant Doug Sundheim noted that women put more emphasis on the negative consequences of risk than men do:
“When facing a risky decision, leaders must weigh a lot of factors. Two of the biggest are, first, the likelihood that the risk in question will help hit strategic objectives and, second, the effect the risk will have on people involved...In my consulting practice I’ve noticed a tendency for men to put a stronger emphasis on the former and women on the latter.”
It is possible that the volatile nature of cryptocurrencies and differing levels of risk adversity biologically assigned to men and women is why the disparity exists in blockchain and cryptocurrency investment and involvement.
Phu Styles, founder of the Women in Blockchain Foundation told Cointelegraph about another possible reason there are more men than women involved in blockchain and cryptocurrency:
“As with most things tech related, men are the target demographic for crypto, thus due to a lack of exposure, there are fewer women invested/involved in cryptocurrency.”
However, this trend could change as the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries are looking to create work opportunities in a number of fields.
The Commodities Future Trading Commission's Primer on Virtual Currencies reports that blockchain technologies have used in financial institutions, government organizations, and cross-industry applications such as digital identities and smart contracts. Applying blockchain technology to these fields could create a number of work opportunities.
With more blockchain related companies going into business the demand for developers, project managers, customer support, lawyers, web designers and many other careers could spawn from companies needing to fill blockchain related roles in their organization.

How to get women involved: from wallet to research

At a recent event “Women in Crypto”, Kelsey Cole, co-founder of blockchain digital advertising company Adbank, suggested that to become involved in the cryptocurrency industry, women should take the following three simple steps:
  1. Set up a wallet and write down its private key, as a position in crypto usually requires acquaintance with some form of cryptocurrency wallet.
  2. Participate in the community, activity that increases knowledge and reputation, which is invaluable to career progression.
  3. Do research on the technology and the market, because due diligence is crucial to success, from both a career and investment perspective.  
Phu Styles also shared with Cointelegraph her vision of possible measures to involve more women to the industry:
“Every crypto investment fund should also be actively seeking to invest in female led blockchain companies, governments grants should be given to incentivize women to start blockchain projects, and on a personal level, both men and women who are already involved in blockchain should share their knowledge and mentor women who are new to the space.”

Increase awareness

Allie Mullen, head of global marketing at the women-focused technology platform Mogul told Cointelegraph that for more women to get involved and invested in blockchain and cryptocurrencies it is important to increase awareness and education.
“I think it's about creating more awareness and educating the industry. Once you understand the general concepts and realize that, even though it’s complex, it's less complicated than it appears. I wrongly assumed that it was a complicated industry meant for software engineers and those in finance. But after learning more, I realized there is actually a lot of opportunity and potential for everyone to get involved.”
The comments from Styles and Mullen suggest that if women are interested in getting invested and involved in the blockchain and cryptocurrency industries, building a knowledge base in both industries is beneficial. Becoming more acquainted and expert could make women well rounded when it comes to blockchain and cryptocurrency and could put them in a position that leads to job opportunities.
For the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry to really advance and be the best it could possibly be, the women and their ideas could be of great value. The more perspectives and angles can be provided by all sorts of people, races, backgrounds, and ethnicities, the better a development in the space would turn out. That is why we need to have more women sitting at the table and contributing to – and also starting – the blockchain and crypto conversations.

Bitcoin, and the idea of digital cash has taken hold of the banking sector as banks and financial institutions start to experiment internally with blockchains and cryptocurrencies in order to be at the forefront of these technologies.

This, coupled with the fact that government organizations and even global leadership bodies such as the G20 are looking to regulate cryptocurrencies, again give more legitimacy and longevity to the industry.

The latest wave of adoption is now coming from corporations who, traditionally have come to be successful thanks to their centralized domination over different aspects of the market. Microsoft, in the world of computing, are legendary in driving the world to be digital; then there is Amazon, the pioneers of e-commerce.

These companies are in some manner getting forced towards blockchain technology as it has become apparent that this is the future, and even though it goes against their centralized values, they simply cannot miss out.

Microsoft’s entry
Microsoft has always been one of the biggest companies to give Bitcoin its dues. Back in Dec. 2014, content on the Windows and Xbox stores could be bought in Bitcoin, and this was at a time where Bitcoin’s mainstream adoption and appeal was minimal.

This, of course, was merely a nod towards alternative payment methods, and Microsoft being flexible to its customers wants and needs. However since then, and since blockchain has grown, Microsoft has been pushing to be in front of the innovative queue.

Microsoft has obviously identified the power of blockchain and its far-reaching potential for disruptive applications in the world of enterprise business. The company is now developing blockchain applications - which are not that flashy as some of the solutions put forward by startups, but equally practical.

Microsoft is also looking to build platforms on which businesses can grow their blockchain applications upon, such as the Confidential Consortium (Coco) Framework, an Ethereum-based protocol, which falls under Microsoft Azure, the company’s cloud computing arm.

They have also announced that they are looking into plans to integrate blockchain-based decentralized IDs (DIDs) into its Microsoft Authenticator app.

The latest from the computing giant is that Azure has released its blockchain app creation service, Azure Blockchain Workbench, on May 7. Workbench aims to allow businesses looking to create bespoke blockchain apps to speed up the development process by automating infrastructure setup.

Amazon’s own efforts
Both Microsoft and Amazon have similar origins with their founders - Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos - being driven men with revolutionary ideas. Therefore it is unsurprising to see these two companies pushing to be at the forefront of a new technological wave.

Gates may be spouting some pretty negative things about Bitcoin, and Bezos may be under siege to accept the digital currency on Amazon, but despite what the two founders think of the cryptocurrency space, it is becoming clear that the future is conquering the companies.

Amazon revolutionized the e-commerce space and is looking to at least be near to the top of the pecking order when blockchain technology truly takes a hold. Just like in banking, there is a rush to get blockchain figured out and usable before the rest of the competition gets to market.

Amazon is already in a battle with IBM and Oracle with its own “blockchain-as-a-service” offering. The blockchain framework for Ethereum and Hyperledger Fabric, which is allowing users to build and manage their own Blockchain-powered decentralized applications, is being developed in different forms by all three.

Essentially, users would be able to create their own blockchain applications via the Amazon Web Services (AWS) CloudFormation Templates tool to avoid time-consuming manual setups of their blockchain network.

Oracle and others also entering the space
Oracle, the world’s second-largest software company, also recently unveiled blockchain products, and will be releasing them over the next two months. Again, it was a similar cloud service built on the open-source Hyperledger Fabric project like Microsoft, and equally similar to IBM’s blockchain service, announced a year ago.

Major companies are also jumping on the blockchain bandwagon in different easy, shapes and forms. Huawei is loading its phones with a built-in Bitcoin wallet;  Samsung revealed that it will use blockchain for managing its global supply chain; Spanish banking group BBVA became the first global bank to issue a loan on a blockchain, and use-cases continue to grow around the world.

Oracle and others also entering the space

Why the blockchain drive?
It was not long ago that people were calling Bitcoin a fad, a scam, and something that will not last for long. Those voices have been silenced somewhat as even banks, one of the biggest detractors of cryptocurrencies, are realizing that they need to be on the forefront of this emerging technology.

The excitement is spreading, and it is creating an arms race even outside banks and the finance sector. Blockchain technology, while intrinsically attached to cryptocurrencies, also has many applications for other sectors. These applications are being explored and evaluated.

Companies like Microsoft, Amazon, Samsung, Huawei, and others, all realize that with all these possibilities, it would be blind to not dive in, and quick.

AWS vice president Jeff Barr explained in a post:

“Some of the people that I talk to see blockchains as the foundation of a new monetary system and a way to facilitate international payments. Others see blockchains as a distributed ledger and immutable data source that can be applied to logistics, supply chain, land registration, crowdfunding and other use cases,. Either way, it’s clear that there are a lot of intriguing possibilities and we are working to help our customers use this technology more effectively.”

Neil Patel, advisor to Kind Ads, a decentralized ad-network that consults companies such as Amazon and Microsoft, reiterates that these major corporations almost have no choice but to embrace blockchain technology as it is being regarded quite openly as the future of technology. Patel told Cointelegraph:

"Microsoft and Amazon have no choice but to focus on blockchain because it is the future. If they don't, they know that it will hurt their growth in the cloud computing space. Just look at Facebook, they see the value in blockchain so much that they moved around their executive team to put the ex president of PayPal on blockchain projects."

Patel’s example above makes mention of how David Marcus, the former president of PayPal and the Facebook executive who has been running the company’s Messenger app, is now assembling a team to explore blockchain technology for the social media platform.

Contradicting ideas
Bitcoin, blockchain and cryptocurrencies, in general, all continue to split opinions. However, the voices in the detracting camps are becoming quieter, especially if they are just single voices.

Jamie Dimon, the head of JP Morgan, called Bitcoin a fraud and spouted much vitriol about cryptocurrencies - and yet, JP Morgan is building its own blockchain, Quorum. The Head of Microsoft is in a similar situation as he says he would bet on Bitcoin collapsing while his company pushes to be a blockchain leader.




Many of these older viewpoints about how things were done, the centralized control of a sector and the move to monopolize a service, still reside in the likes of Gates and Dimon, but on the company floor, it is a different story.

Blockchain technology is being touted as the future, and it is not just empty words. The amount of money, time and effort being put into blockchain-based research and development by banks and corporations prove there is something more to it than a passing fad.
