According to Google Analytics, calculated by https://coin.dance/stats,
Bitcoin Community Engagement by Gender is 90 percent male, and 10 percent female.

I know some females on Telegram, but then, you can never be sure because it is Telegram Smiley



What is your experience like when it comes to gender in this community?

And here is Bitcoin Community Engagement by Age (18+ only)

Mostly 24-35-year-olds (48%), followed by 35-44 (28%). Then 18-24 (9.34%) and 45-54 came (9.6%).
So the age seems to be showing normal distribution around 24-35-year-olds skewed to the right side.
If you are too young or too old, you are one of the extremes.

I was expecting it to actually be slightly lower(probably 7-8%?), simply because I barely see women on bitcoin/cryptocurrency conferences besides event hosts(though I'm aware that this is a very inaccurate metric). This is not only in the bitcoin and cryptocurrency industry anyway, but in the technology industry in general, so it's really not surprising.

The statistics I guess was just made through random sampling. And of course the result was only due to people who willingly answered the survey. The result is not equal but a rough estimates on the actual number of women and men who are into cryptocurrency. Also remember that people are using fake names online and some wanted to be anonymous thus I guess the result is far from the real situations. But I do agree on some part that the majority of people who are into bitcoin are males.

Nope, it was not a survey, but Google Analytics numbers were used. I know a lot of people use female avatars/pictures to collect more followers, but you can't fool almighty Google!!!

We never know how many males and females who get involved in the bitcoin community because there are no right statistics about that. But I am sure that many females joined in the bitcoin community and they don't show themselves in this forum. That statistic could be a kind of information about the percentage of the people who are using bitcoin.

I guess Google Analytics can depend on each countries population so that it might be different from one country to another country. The female's picture or avatar can not be the information that she is females or not. But no matter how many of them, we need to give information about bitcoin and cryptocurrency for people in out there so they could follow us to use bitcoin and cryptocurrency. That is the important thing that we should do now.

Information is available all over the web(though mostly not public). It's not that there's no statistic about the percentage of females in the community, it's just that it's going to be quite inaccurate(because you know, false information on accounts and such). But the point still stands, that even without statistics and with simply being in the community itself, it's pretty obvious that females are a huge minority in the bitcoin community and in the technology industry in general.

Bitcoin Community Engagement by Gender is 90 percent male, and 10 percent female.

Look at the bright side, the female percentage has grown 6 times from 2016:

Quote
According to figures from Coin Dance, the margin between male and female use of the digital currency is too wide to talk of a balance at this point. In its Bitcoin Community Engagement by Gender using Google Analytics, it shows that there are 98.24% male users compared to 1.76% female.

Funny thing is that if you go to https://coin.dance/stats/gender
And look at the bottom of the page at the "team", there are no female avatars  Grin

And also, facebook had (or still has, I'm not sure) at one time at least 50 genders to choose from, so not even one person neither male nor female is interested in crypto?  Grin

There is no girls on the internet.
Are you absolutely positively sure? Or was that a joke?

It's a meme, the saying has been around for two decades already and is still used thanks to a lot of guys posing as females in multiplayer games to get free stuff trolls in chatrooms that simply...troll!

And it works even here on bitcointalk...see the Alia saga.

Really! How can you not know this without using statistics? It is very obvious that crypto is Male dominant territory, just this forum alone will give you a hint without going as far as seeking out statistics, go to any telegram group chat of any project, you will get your answer,  go to any blockchain seminars, you will get your answer,  except you have not pay attention  Roll Eyes

Don't know why you were so surprised really. It's a tech thing, go figure.

Now supposedly, one explanation is that women are proven to be more risk averse than men. I agree here, and the science seems to be pretty solid on that.

However, it doesn't explain why the gender disparity is even more pronounced in, say, developer communities or metrics like github commits.

So yeah. It's still a tech thing. Nothing more. You want to meet more women, look at the corporate blockchains where they have wider range of skillsets under employment.

In general investing is risky thing - and cryptocurrencies as such are more risky.

So far taking a risk was more common among males (a behaviour inherited since hunter-gatherer era of mankind), but it seems that as time goes by, more females are willing to take the risk.

Women are usually more calculated with their moves and more risk averse than men, so in that regard it's more likely to see them either just wait for it to become mainstream to enter, or flat out consider it a ponzi casino type of asset.

I am however aware of how flawed the men versus women metric is on a lot of sites, because for some reason women just check the men box when they sign up to a site. In that regard, I'm actually more interested to see the statistics of KYC exchanges, because you can't cheat there and thus get a more accurate view on what the ratio between men and women really is.

I agree that it would be interesting to see statistics from KYC sites. One way we could get that was to get our hands on that was the infamous binance KYC leak but unfortunately, I missed that.
Having said that, I am pretty sure google analytics is very accurate.

I saw this thread last 2017 already i don't know someone reposted this again but in much greater detail anyway, i think why there are more males than females hodling bitcoin is because males are into technological stuff than females but google analytics varies country to country or just gathering data based on details on the internet but i don't know how exactly google analytics works but anyway we don't know how much exactly how many males and females use bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and the community is still growing day by day since the bitcoin is already mainstream in some countries.

The statistics are impressive although I think the population of females involved in cryprocurrency need to increase. I'm more interested in the 65+ category that make up about 1.43%, it shows that not everyone is as obstinate as Dan Pena and Warren Buffet in terms of welcoming new technologies/inventions.

<…> What is your experience like when it comes to gender in this community? <…>

Specifically on Bitcointalk, if we go by the "gender" profile field we get:
It took me a bit to find the post where I’d provided this Information before:

<…> Looking over @piggy’s full profile database (generated at the beginning of December 2018), the gender field shows:

-   Male value informed:                      95.831 profiles (3,86% of all profiles)
-   Female value informed:                  20.308 profiles (0,82% of all profiles)
-   Uninformed or invalid content:   2.365.131 profiles (95,32% of all profiles)

Therefore, the ratio, based on the informed gender field, is 4,7 male per female. Now I don’t really believe the above ratio too much. It’s what the data shows, but the gender is highly uninformed on the profiles, and I’ve seen quite a few bot bursts creating accounts and adding a gender randomly.

I guess that, due to the lack of female representation, it seems quite usual to refer to apparently male profiles as “she”, especially when the discussion scales a tone or two …
The male to female ratio is the same as that on the official stats.

I don’t particularly trust the sincerity of the declared values on this field, and there could indeed be quite a large set of people that state a specific gender in accordance to how they believe will be more beneficial to their interests. Isolating the profile values that have been declared we get 82,5% male for 17,5% female. The latter value seems pretty inflated though.

I have a similar experience. Female participation is very low in most of the technical expects and specially cryptocurrency.
There are some female engineers as well as content writers working in this field but almost all of them are employee and there rarely are any crypto based business led by female.
This could be due to the social system around the world and empowering women has meant to provide them a salary for helping men in most cases.

Are you absolutely positively sure? Or was that a joke?

I don't know if 4chan trolls consider it a joke. Smiley

I guess you haven't learned the rules of the internet. See Rules 29 and 30:

Quote
Rule 29 states: In the internet all girls are men and all kids are undercover FBI agents.
Rule 30 states: There are no girls on the internet.


In all seriousness, this is probably where the answer lies. It's not just Bitcoin but the entire tech sector.
