New research from US crypto exchange Xcoins suggests gold investors are pretty evenly split between men and women, but men dominate the ranks of crypto investors by a significant margin.
The data also revealed that “gold investors are more likely to own a cat than cryptocurrency holders (45% to 38%), while cryptocurrency holders tend to be ‘dog people’ (43% to 38%).”
Xcoins’ research used Global Web Index data between 2017 and 2020, to find the differences between gold and crypto owners.
The research found that there is a significant disparity between women’s views on gold as an investment as opposed to crypto. Around 46.7% of gold investors are women and 53.5% are men, while among crypto investors, 71.9% are men and just 28.1% are women.
The crypto gender gap is nothing new and it is widely believed the crypto and blockchain sectors are male-dominanted. However, research is showing that the gap has been shrinking over the past couple of years, as crypto gradually embeds itself into mainstream society.
A report released by CoinMarketCap in April 2020 found that 43% of investors interested in Bitcoin were women, up from just 13% the year before.Title: Bitcoiners love dogs, gold bugs prefer cats — Important new research
