Why crypto is the smart choice for women who want to build wealth

Article by Katharine Wooller, Managing Director, Dacxi

Over the past few years reports from respected commentators such as the FT, the well-known investment blog The Motley Fool, and Forbes have shown that women are better investors than men.

We’re talking about men who are amateur or hobby investors. If they buy something that doesn’t quickly go up, they get bored, sell out and buy something different. This could equally translate as ‘all the gear and no idea’ — you’ve may have come across men like this in all walks of life!

In truth this is really quite bizarre as the legendary ‘alpha male’ professional investors like Warren have a philosophy of buying into good ideas then sitting and waiting. It might not drive much adrenalin, but Mrs Buffet is probably very happy they have male partners who buck the trend.

Of course, on a day-by-day basis, cryptocurrency looks to be something of an adrenalin driven sector. But, in my experience, there are two sorts of investors in the cryptosphere. The first are those with a gold rush mentality who are trading and trying to ‘game the market’ looking for short-term returns to turn back into their local fiat currency. The second, however, believe that crypto is the future of finance and that, unlike fiat currency where sovereign governments can print money at will, blue chip coins with a finite quantum will increase in value over the long term.

Of the many reasons I believe crypto is a natural fit with women who want to invest, one of the foremost is that we feel a natural affinity with decentralised finance or DeFi. In global terms governments, still predominantly male driven, waste fortunes whilst enabling financial institutions to make millions from bank charges on cross-border transactions. Crypto, for many reasons is fairer, more democratic, and — to be blunt — doesn’t care about your gender.
