Friday, May 28. The week is coming to an end, so we can talk about the most interesting news in the crypto industry for this week.
Women acquire crypt because of its capitalization
BDC Consulting conducted a survey among the weaker sex. There were 28 countries and about 400 women interviewed. The results suggest that they do not look at popularity or hype around a digital asset, but directly at the liquidity of the coin itself.
The age of the interviewees ranged from 25 to 44 years. Among them, more than half of the participants recognized their knowledge in this area as either “medium” or “above average”. And only 35% of girls work with cryptocurrency, the rest just invest in it.
36% of the people surveyed came into the crypto industry because of people who told them about digital gold, and 18% learned about it through the news. 57% of girls have started investing in crypts to improve their capital. 50% have decided to try something new in their lives and are driven by curiosity.
75% position themselves as investors, 20% deal directly with trading. Most of them were attracted that they could manage their finances, be decentralized, and feel financially independent.
Among the reasons why it is more difficult for women to enter the world of the crypto industry were named:
- Men’s style of project presentations.
- A lot of technical statements that many of the women just don’t understand.
- Condescension on the part of men on thematic forums, or incorrect behavior.
- Lack of material to study the topic.
- Lack of funds for investment.
Coronavirus Helped Cryptocurrency
The Crypto.com platform commissioned research from The Economist Intelligence Unit analysts, after which it became clear that people were increasingly favouring digital assets, and the coronavirus pandemic played into their hands and accelerated the process.
The Economist Intelligence Unit interviewed some 3,000 retail buyers and institutions with corporate treasurers.
Almost half of the respondents agreed that Covid-19 made it easier for people to see cryptocurrency as more interesting for use.
The most common form of digital assets among residents is cryptocurrency. It’s 18 percent, corporate cryptocurrency 12 percent.
According to interviewees, it is advantageous to keep cryptocurrency because of the increase in the cost of capital, as well as to make large money transfers.
Forbes: children of Pavel Durov took the 6th place in the ranking of the richest heirs
In one of our previous digests, we talked about Pavel Durov’s fortune and that he was one of the top ten Russian entrepreneurs according to Forbes, as well as the top billionaire in the UAE.
Now, the largest financial magazine in the world has reached his children. Pavel Durov estimates that he has a fortune of $17.2 billion. His two children would have inherited $8.6 billion. This placed them in sixth place among the richest heirs.
Pavel has both children with his ex-wife Daria Bondarenko. The daughter should be 12 years old this year, and the son 11. All information about them is carefully hidden by the parents, so the public only knows the name of their son-Mikhail.
The richest heir is the son of shareholder “Lukoil” Vagit Alekperov – Yusuf Alekperov. Second place to the daughter of co-owner of “Novateka” Victoria Michelson. The third son of Iskander Mahmudov (Director of Transformation of UMMC) is Jahangir Mahmudov.
Miners have contributed to the growth of Nvidia
In the first quarter of this year, the sales growth of an American technology company that develops graphics processors and systems on the Nvidia chip has been able to increase sales by 84% since 2020.
Processor sales have increased by more than 80%. According to the company, purchases in the video game industry have more than doubled over the past year.
The dedicated GPU for Mining, which was introduced in March, has already contributed $155 million to Nvidia. Nvidia also says that the long-term demand from miners can either increase or decrease. Everything will depend on the state of the market as a whole.
We remind you that in May, the company limited the hashrate to its three video cards: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080, 3070 and 3060 Ti. A special line of CMP (Cryptocurrency Mining Processor) chips was developed to satisfy the miner.
