The number of women investors in bitcoin has doubled since the beginning of the year

Over the last six months the number of women considering investing in crypto currencies has increased from 6% to 13%, according to the newspaper City A. M.

The material is based on the market research conducted by the British cryptocurrency exchange London Block Exchange, which shows that cryptocurrency is the most popular among women, Millennials, among whom approximately one fifth are willing to invest in them.

The study also clearly demonstrates the difference in how invested men and women, and women profess a more strategic approach, because they are 50% less likely than men to suffer from the “fear of missed opportunities” (FOMO). In addition, the study shows that women are more prone to cooperation than men because they are twice as likely to consult family and friends about their potential investment in comparison with men, who statistically prefer to “go it alone”.

Earlier studies conducted cryptocurrency exchange etoro show that until recently the industry was dominated by men: men accounted for 91.5% of all investors, women accounted for only 8.5%.

However, a senior analyst at the London Block Exchange Agnes de Royer believes that this trend may change. For словамCity A. M., Royer said:

Still there is a common misconception that cryptocurrencies is a game for men, but we see over the last few months only on our exchange have registered hundreds of women and some of the most inspiring and knowledgeable investors, which lead the industry for a women.
