As the report published by Grayscale proves, women show almost as much interest in Bitcoin (BTC) as men. Even thougha piece of information like that might surprise, as many as 56.2% of women see great potential in cryptocurrencies.
As it was suggested by data from GoogleAnalytics, the industry, up until now, was seen as a space dominated by men. The data indicated that men are as much as 90% of the involved Bitcoin community. It turns out, though, that there is an analysis according to which these statistics could be undermined.
Women are also interested in Bitcoin
1,100 American investors (both men and women) in the 25-64 age range participated in the research carried out by Grayscale. The survey was conducted between March 28 and April 3 this year. According to the report, 56.2% of women and 56.4% of men see the potential for value increases in cryptocurrencies. In addition, as many as 49.8% of women and 49.9% of men surveyed were of the opinion that the limited supply of Bitcoin may increase the demand and, thereby, positively affect its price.
Although 80% of the surveyed women were interested in Bitcoin, as many as 93% said they would be more open to the assets of this class if they had access to more educational resources.
Women are more cautious than men
The report also shows that women see investment more as a way to protect their capital than as a way to get rich. As many as 60% of women said they pay more attention to financial security than to multiplying capital. Of the same opinion were only 48% of men.
In the field of self-confidence, the winner was the male sex. The reason is that a great number of women lack faith in their own investment skills. 44% of women participating in the research said they felt insecure in this field. On the other hand, only 22% of men admitted to feeling this way.
Even though the report showed that interest in Bitcoin is almost the same among men and women, a great number of other analyses have suggested something different. Looking at these results, however, it is worth considering the fact that the surveys were conducted among people who were already associated with various investments.
