Increase in Women Interested in Investing Crypto Since Start of Year
Over the last six months, the amount of women considering an investment in cryptocurrencies has gone from 6% to 13%, reports City A.M. June 9.
The report was based on a market research conducted by a UK cryptocurrency exchange London Block Exchange, which shows that cryptocurrency is most popular with women in the millennial generation, one out of five of whom express a desire to invest.
The research also suggests a difference in the way men and women invest, with women taking a more strategic approach as they are 50% less likely than men to suffer from a “fear of missing out” (FOMO).
London Block Exchange’s senior business analyst Agnes de Roeyer, however, believes this trend could be undergoing a change.
According to City A.M., Roeyer said, “There’s still a common misconception that cryptocurrency is a game for men, but we’ve seen hundreds of women sign up for our exchange in the last few months and some of the most inspiring and knowledgeable investors, leading the way in the industry are female.”
