This is not a male world
Contrary to the common assumption that the crypto market is dominated by men, women also have a significant share in it. In, a survey conducted by Coinmarketcap covering the first quarter of 2020, we can see the rapid spread of cryptocurrencies around the world. A significant increase in popularity can be observed especially among young people and women.
More and more female users
In 2020, women aged 18-24 increased by 65%. A large increase can be observed in the number of female users from Europe and America. In some countries, such as Greece and Romania, the number of female crypto users has more than doubled.
Has the crisis affected women’s interest in Bitcoin?
Since last year, when only 13% of BTC investors were women, it is now up to 43% and is still growing. What could have affected this? Women tend to worry about the future and present it in a pessimistic way. Perhaps the vision of problems with holding entire savings in uncertain currencies makes them look for alternatives such as gold or crypto. So many people in hyperinflation-affected countries are investing their money in Bitcoin so it seems to work. More women use cryptocurrencies to store their assets in this way than to trade them for profit. Many of them use cryptocurrencies as they would use fiat money. They pay with crypto for clothes, coffee, and other everyday goods.
