New survey reveals: One in five Europeans who hold cryptocurrencies is a woman
Jul 31, 2019
Although the crypto industry continues to be heavily male-dominated, it may be about to change, at least in Europe.
This according to a new survey done by the fintech company Bitpanda and the research firm Global Web Index.
According to the survey, which was done by gathering large amounts of data, one of five Europeans who own cryptocurrency is a woman. Previous surveys have shown that 90 percent of those who invest in cryptocurrencies are male.
Crypto women earn more
The survey also shows that women who invest in cryptocurrencies are 30 percent more likely than their male counterparts to be among the 10 percent who earn the most, Cointelegraph reports.
Whether this is because women are better at investing in cryptocurrencies or if they are profiting from something else is unclear.
