May 12, 2020  BitcoinWoman Magazine  and Ultracoin announce that we are partnering to sponsor Elsa Hammond in the Great Pacific Race 2014.

On June 7, 2020, Elsa Hammond will be competing in a 2400 mile boat race across the Pacific Ocean, from California to Hawaii.

The Great Pacific Race is the first rowing race on the Pacific, with teams of 1, 2 and 4 rowers competing against each other on the world’s largest ocean. Ms. Hammond will be traveling solo in a boat carrying no sails or engines, moved only by her muscles pulling the oars, in a journey expected to take up to three months.

Ms. Hammond has dedicated her race to two causes - the Plastic Oceans Foundation, a charity that works to raise awareness of plastic pollution in our oceans; and the GREAT Initiative, an inspirational and growing gender equality charity.

Ultracoin, a cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, will be sponsoring Elsa in her journey with donations and publicity. “Team UTC and our community are thrilled to be able to support Ms. Hammond in her attempt to complete this amazing voyage and we are amazed by her drive and perseverance. Our community will also donate a substantial amount of UTC after completion to show our support in this incredible endeavor” said the founder of Ultracoin in a statement about the sponsorship.

DCGirl, lead application developer for Ultracoin and a writer for BitcoinWoman Magazine adds “We were awestruck when we read of Elsa Hammond’s race. She is taking on something that most of us would find impossible and providing inspiration to women everywhere. I join with my team and the entire Ultracoin community in supporting Elsa in her quest.”
