43% of Investors Interested in Bitcoin are Women – Grayscale
A new study by Grayscale has revealed that 43% of investors interested in the flagship cryptocurrency bitcoin are women. The study involved 1,100 U.S.-based participants aged 25-64 active in personal investing with at least $10,000 in tangible assets and a household income of at least $50,000.
The study found both women and men “share similar perceptions” of bitcoin which means that the cryptocurrency space is not as male-dominated as believed. However both groups have a different approach to investing in crypto.
The study revealed that women are “generally less optimistic about investments and more risk-averse, “but see identical opportunities in digital assets. Around 49.8% of women and 49.9% of men claimed that bitcoin’s finite supply may see demand, and hence price grow.
According to the study, women showed that more education on cryptocurrencies could lead to greater interest. 76% revealed they lack familiarity with bitcoin, and 93% indicated they could be more attracted to cryptocurrency if they had more educational resources on it.
