Women are Taking Over the Crypto Market

Published

on

The crypto space has majorly been dominated by men but women are changing that notion now as recent findings from, AltcoinTrader revealed that women cryptocurrency owners are on the rise. The South Africa cryptocurrency exchange had revealed that more women are owning cryptocurrency unlike before and the ages of men who own cryptocurrency are between the ages of 18 and 40.

This is a remarkable feat as it will cause a great deal of diversity and inclusion in the crypto space. What we want is financial inclusion for everyone right? Then it’s a great thing that women are getting involved in the space. Richard de Sousa a partner at AltcoinTrader, say: “We think that the growth in this market is still at its infancy and as more regulatory frameworks get developed over time in this space, more people will get into it. There will definitely be an increase in our records across all of these generations as the market evolves.”

The report also showed that,“the group is a culmination of the Xenial and Generation Y or “millennials”. They are born between 1978-1988 and are dominating this space owning bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Although there are more men generally internationally in the cryptocurrency market, there is a high rise of women in various age groups. The cryptocurrency exchange revealed, “As cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin are still a new phenomenon, we are starting to see more South Africans get into this space.”

Although women dominated the space in the category of women aged 30-40, Males dominated the category of 18-30 year category. Women also dominated in the 40 to 80 age account groups. For the last six months, the number of women investing in cryptos has risen from 6 percent to 13 percent. African women are moving towards financial inclusion and liberty in the world and cryptocurrencies offer that freedom. It is not difficult to find out why more women are investing in cryptocurrencies.

Ditcoin Gets New PR Officer

Published

on

Ditcoin is taking the African market by a storm. Africa’s first privacy coin as the cryptocurrency is often referred to is taking things a notch higher by appointing a new PR officer to handle its affairs.  Brooke Miller the new Public Relations officer has worked with many businesses across America, Europe and the middle East. She will be dealing with questions and information from people who are not yet convinced of the safety, investment potential and ease of use that Ditcoin presents.

Earlier in the week Ditcoin had announced its new CEO Emeka Tony who had high hopes for the coin. He had announced his hopes that, “in a couple of months, we expect to see Ditcoin in coinmarketcap, Dit Refill, Ditpay, Airdrops, New exchangers and partnerships.”  He was also appreciative of the support they had got so far saying, “I want to use this medium to appreciate everyone who has bought into this vision and is still running with it. I pledge in my capacity as the new CEO to be a team player because together we can achieve great feats and make great impacts in this blockchain ecosystem.”

Ditcoin which is a privacy coin built on the Monero Blockchain to suit the African situation, the coin has other services to offer. They include DitPay module which is the world’s first “CryptoCurrency Powered e-commerce & Payment Processor”. Mr Brooke Miller expressed her excitement about the new prospect saying, “I am very excited about ditcoin and the possibilities and future it holds.” She expressed her dismay about the amount of resources and minerals the world had taken out of Africa and how she is glad that the coin would be bringing real indepence to the people.

Brooke Miller explains saying, “Tony has a vision of being able to be independent within the country using diction. Just as of bitcoin was being created for Africa. You know business is very different in Africa than it is in other parts of the world. It is extremely important to be able to have a safe secure way to be able to refill phone which is a day to day basis in Africa. And also to be able to pay, to be able to pay safely, to be able to pay quickly to be able to maybe send money when you don’t need people to see where your money is going.”

All You Need to Know About Airdrops

Published

on

Everybody likes free things, although we are usually suspicious of them. This is because we have been used to thinking that free things serve as a bait to hook you on to something else. So, people would usually shy away from free things particularly free money. But in the cryptocurrency world, there is actually free money and it is referred to as ‘Airdrop’

What is Airdrop

Airdrops refers to a process whereby a  cryptocurrency enterprise distributes its  tokens to a user’s wallet, completely free of charge. Usually, airdrops are done by start-ups, although, established companies or platforms can do them as well. The airdropped coins usually are fairly low in value or used within the ecosystem of a particular platform, but they definitely have the potential to grow. Airdrops are like marketing campaigns organised by a cryptocurrency startup to raise awareness about their services or products. That way, they can generate more interest and exposure for their products. As information about the Airdrop and that particular token spreads among the community, raising the awareness, which in turn increases the trading volume of a particular coin when it gets listed on an exchange. There are basically two types of airdrops. The surprise ones and the ones that are announced prior to the time it is airdropped.

Airdrops are different from Initial Coin Offerings. While ICOs involve a private sale where investors purchase tokens in a private sale often followed by a public sale round where small investors purchase tokens. However, airdrops do not involve any purchasing and are just token giveaways.

How to get free coins

Now that we have established that airdrops are just giveaways, you need to know how to participate in one, in these simple steps. First, you sign up for an Airdrop by filling out a form. Next, you give out your wallet’s address for receiving coins, and free tokens land in your wallet at the speculated time.

You can also sign up for online services that provide information about airdrops. These online services will send you an alert when there is an airdrop. Such as   Airdropalert.com or Airdropaddict.com. Also, there are telegram groups and twitter account of coins that announce new airdrops.

Beware of Airdrop Scams

There are many scammer out there ready to take advantage of every situation.  The cryptocurrency industry is not left out. It is still largely unregulated and still growing. For this reason, many scammers set up crypto projects for the purpose of scamming users out of their money. So one has to be very careful.

Some airdrops are setup to hack into the wallets of unsuspecting users thereby stealing their private key. You should ensure that the airdrop is authentic before participating in it. You can also store your crypto in cold storage to prevent them from being stolen.
