According to a recent poll, conventional asset classes have not been successful in getting more women into the investment space. However, crypto seems to have been successful in bringing women on board. The findings of the poll indicate that there has been a notable increase in the number of women who possess cryptocurrency. According to the data, the percentage of people who owned their home rose from 29% in the third quarter of 2022 to 34% in the most recent quarter.
The team at eToro believes that this indicates that cryptocurrency is “succeeding where conventional financial markets have sometimes failed,” and one way that it is doing this is by attracting a greater number of women.
During the last three months of 2022, the rate of crypto adoption among women skyrocketed, whereas the rate of crypto ownership among males climbed by just one percent during the same time period. The percentage of worldwide investors that own cryptocurrency increased from 36% to 39% from the previous quarter, despite the fact that cryptocurrency was regarded as the asset class that performed the poorest over the course of the previous year.
In addition to being pushed by the participation of women, the data was also affected by the participation of elderly investors who bought the dip.
The percentage of retail investors aged 35–44 and 45–54 who own cryptocurrency increased by 5 percent apiece, which suggests that older investors are also acquiring crypto.
Regarding the question of why more investors are getting involved in cryptocurrency, 37% of those who took part in the survey said they are seizing the opportunity to make high returns, while 34% of those who took part in the survey said they believe in the power of blockchain and think cryptocurrency is a transformative asset class.
Retail investors aren’t the only ones who are showing their faith in blockchain technology by making investments; corporations are beginning to do the same thing.
The results of a poll conducted by Casper Labs on January 12 revealed that of the 603 companies that took part in the study, 90% had already used blockchain technology in some form.
