Is it possible to add a new word to the dictionary?

I'm the founder of GiveBytes.com - an innovative crowdfunding platform where users can support the fundraising campaigns of their choice by sharing their computing power. The power donated by all campaign supporters is used for mining cryptocurrency which is sent to the fundraiser's virtual wallet. I call this process crowdmining and I was wondering if it was possible to add it to the dictionary :smile:

Here's a link to a video explainer:

Thanks for your help and #GiveALittleByteOfLove

  • Hello @givebytes. We can certainly pass your suggestion on to our editors. We do need to see evidence of use of a word before it is added to our dictionaries. You can find information about this here.
