In this article we’ll show you what is related to women and their position on Bitcoin.
Very important, we must break paradigms.
As the Blockchain industry becomes more widespread, women are getting involved in the market, making it no longer a business only for men. As a consequence, women are changing their position on Bitcoin. Excellent for us.
In fact, Bitcoin emerges as an opportunity to consolidate the economic independence of the female population. A woman with access to a computer, smart phone and Internet can download a wallet and save money.

Women and Bitcoin
Indeed, a report published on December 4 by Bitcoin’s fund operator, Grayscale, suggested that 43% of the investors interested in Bitcoin are women.
Furthermore, the report showed that 80% of the women were also intrigued by Bitcoin’s potential. While 93% indicated that they would be more open to investing, if more educational resources were available.
To continue, a study published in December 2019, conducted by IE University’s Center for the Governance of Change (CGC), entitled „Crypto-Currencies and the Future of Money“. It found that women’s adoption of cryptomonies is lower than that of men. Especially in Latin American countries.
Even, according to another analysis by Heidrick & Struggles, fewer women have been chosen as CEOs in the world’s largest companies. Basically, since the beginning of the pandemic.
However, in the world of the Blockchain, more and more women are dominating new professions: investors, traders, analysts, promoters, journalists and even company heads.
In particular, few people are aware that more women are now in leadership positions in the Blockchain and crypto-currency industry.
