Hii!
Just wondering if there are any fellow girls on here who are into Bitcoin mining, trading, etc. It seems it's mainly guys. We are roughly 50% of the population of this planet yet I can't find any girls who are into Bitcoins, anywhere.

Everytime I try to mention Bitcoins while hanging out with girlfriends they always look confused and change the subject, yet they're not "dumb girls", they've been to Uni, spend a lot of time online, have paypal acc's, online banking, etc. Why are they so reluctant to hear about Bitcoins?

The Bitcoin network protocol was designed to be extremely flexible. It can be used to create timed transactions, escrow transactions, multi-signature transactions, etc. The current features of the client only hint at what will be possible in the future.

My scammer alert alarm is sounding. Yeah, there are a few girls involved in bitcoin, but sadly most of the ones on here who go out of their way to tell everyone about their female gender are unfortunately just gearing up to try scam people.

Whoa! Stereotyping much? Not all girls are bitwhores, OKKK??
I have 4 KNC miners + a cute butterfly on the way (hopefully 2, they haven't arrived yet).
Please be a bit more welcoming to girls, with this sort of harsh stereotyping going on it's no wonder I can't find any girls on here.

Hi and welcome. There are other women here, but you can see why they don't mention it much.

Gender is of no relevance here. People with and without penis/vagina tend to look confused and change subject when it comes to bitcoin. The other thing is that male individuals tend to fake beeing female in order to get loans etc. Thus anyone that outright claims to be female will be considered a scam until proven otherwise. Isnt it fantastic how our society has evolved since we went digital?

Fair enough, I get it, I'm reading the "I'm in love" thread right now.

Ps. Who the hell is King Vod and how do I get him to verify me as legit?

No not all girls are bitwhores, but the ones pretending to be female on here with the same usual tricks are. I've seen it all before. It's unfortunate but that's what people do on here. Out of the last ten users claiming to be female 9/10 of them have been men pretending to be girls. I also tend to think it's people like you that do the stereotyping. I mean, would a girl really go around referring to a bitcoin miner as 'cute'? I don't think they would, but someone pretending to be one will usually use words that they think will make them sound a bit more believable. Don't take it personally, but this place is full of scammers and there are certain things that will always arouse suspicion, and being a 'girl' is one of them.

The post is a bit ironic. Most of the gamer girls on twitch already have a btc address for donations w. their paypal.  Cheesy

They actually prefer bitcoin since they dont want to pay taxes.

Lol ok, for a start I call everything cute cause I'm a girly kind of girl! Plus, something named after a cute monarch butterfly, come on! Also, my miners are cute at night, turn off all the lights and the flashing lights are cute, you should try it and you'll see I'm right.
ps. when I said "bitwhores" I didn't mean for it to start catching on...
ps.2. I'm a girl I promise and I don't need any help or loans thank you, just want to be welcomed as an equal.

I know but I meant girls genuinely interested in Bitcoins (how it started, mining, trading, etc). I didn't mean girls who got a wallet set up for them and have no clue or interest on what Bitcoin actually is.

Maybe because you sound like a preacher trying to sell a religion? Don't do that. Only talk about bitcoin if you are asked about it and even then be brief.

There is a lack of girls in the Bitcoin community AFAIK, but as someone else mentioned, not all of them are Bitwhores lol. Some of them are creating legit content, check this out:

I'm sure there are a few girls, but considering that I've seen some rather sexist comments on here quite recently, I'm not surprised that they are hiding their gender and/or not hanging out on this forum very much.

This is the internet; there are sexist and racist and generally ignorant commentators everywhere, though users on here tend to be pretty tolerant and open-minded in general, but there are a few terrible bigots lurking around here.

Julia is great. I recommend here channel, though she may be too opinionated for some, but I like that about her. She seems to be a really big bitcoin fan.

Pot... meet kettle....

Take a look at these two recent threads, this one by user Supraman, and this one by user grumpyoldtroll (whose first word in his post is "Guys,"). Both are newbies, both are asking questions that have been asked a hundred times before that could easily have been answered by a web search, both are guys. They both got warm welcomes and/or informative responses.

Now take a look at this thread, with someone asking a question that hasn't been asked a hundred times before, but a girl, and the first couple of responses (hilariousandco and serje) were anything but warm, in fact I'd call them downright disgraceful.

As far as I'm concerned, anybody on this forum could be a scammer, and I'd never do business with anyone until being convinced otherwise. But it's completely inappropriate to throw up a red flag unless you have real concerns or evidence, and not just "but she's a girl! and lots of guys lie and scam pretending to be girls!" Even though I fully concede that statistics might support the latter, it's nonetheless perpetuating a sexist stereotype.

There are no personal attacks intended here... it just saddens me when people who are clearly a significant benefit to the Bitcoin community come forward with posts such as those above.

*A Wild White Knight appears*. This has nothing to do with being sexist. It would be pretty sexist to think women just like cute fluffy pink things... s/he must be a woman because they would think things are cute, right? I have more respect for women than to think they would come on a bitcoin forum and do such a thing, whereas this is unfortunately the type of behavior men will attempt when they're trying to sucker in white knights into dropping their guard, so a warning is relevant. Maybe this user is a woman, no way to tell, but gender shouldn't even matter, but when you come along to a forum and the first thing you go on about is you being a female it sets alarm bells off because why is it relevant? It isn't.

I would imagine there are other girls here, they may just be lost in the crowd amongst the men Smiley I know a few women who use bitcoins themselves so I know women have an interest in bitcoins.

I am sure in time more people will learn about bitcoins and hopefully your friends will soon show an interest in bitcoins Smiley
