There’s scant data on the diversity of crypto companies. Among 67 companies in the portfolio of Digital Currency Group Inc. -- a company that invests in blockchain technology -- 17 percent of employees were female, while a third had no women, according to a March 2016 blog post by DCG’s director of development Meltem Demirors. The figure is comparable to the percentage of venture-funded companies with female founders around the world, according to Crunchbase data.
nly 5% to 7% of all cryptocurrency users are women, making the industry a highly male-dominated one. This extends to every avenue of blockchain and cryptocurrency, proven by a brief look at the related statistics. In 2017, investors in Bitcoin witnessed wealth creation of approximately $85 billion – only $5 billion, or a mere 5.88%, of this was obtained by women. Ninety percent of Bitcoin users are men. When this group is expanded, it is seen that only a mere 1.76% of the entire Bitcoin community are women.
