Study: Women Are Now Leading the Market for Crypto Investment
A recent study by the London Block Exchange suggest that women are catching up to their male counterparts in the crypto world. With the number of women willing to invest doubling in the last six months, a concentration in growth among millennials, and women displaying advantageous tendencies such as an inclination toward collaboration, it's clear that cryptocurrency is not just a men's game.
In some areas women tend to fare markedly better: The study notes that women are 50 percent less likely to suffer from the "fear of missing out" that can fuel more rash investment decisions.

New research shows that the number of women considering to invest in cryptocurrencies has doubled in the last six months.
Although demand among men is starting to level out, one in eight women, almost 13 percent, would potentially invest in the digital currencies compared to six percent at the end of last year.
The market research was carried out by London Block Exchange and it found that especially within the millennial generation, cryptos have gained popularity, with one in five female millennials wanting to invest.
Agnes de Roeyer, senior business analyst at London Block Exchange, 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.”
