Female Bitcoin and Litecoin Spot Market users are showing an increasing interest in these two altcoins, with one group claiming to be more active than others.
Female Bitcoin users, or ‘tards’ as they’re known, have been trading the two digital currencies for months, and recently joined a rival trading platform called Bittrex.
One of the largest female bitcoin miners, the 24-year-old from Sydney, said she had been mining Litecoin for about six months, but her interest in the altcoin has risen recently.
Ms Williams told the ABC that her mining operation was still small, and she would be buying more than just the coins at the moment, but said she was getting “a lot more” interest.
“I’m starting to feel more confident and have a lot more people come to me,” she said.
“It’s really cool.”
‘Not a penny of profit’ Ms Williams said she used her own bitcoin wallet to store her holdings, and that she paid her miners about $0.25 per coin, which she estimated to be around $4,000.
“Not a single cent of it goes to me.
The miners get the money,” she added.
“They don’t pay me anything for it, they get a percentage of the money.”
However, some users are reporting having problems with the system, which has been in operation since October.
“Some of my miners have had problems with it, and they’re sending me bitcoin, and then when I open my wallet, it just goes back to zero,” Ms Williams added.
While some users reported difficulty opening their wallets and losing bitcoins, Ms Williams has also been having difficulty keeping track of all the transactions.
“All I can remember is that I’m getting more transactions every day, and it’s definitely been going up,” she told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
“A lot of people are saying ‘well we’ve got to get rid of it’ but I’m really happy with it.”
I just feel like I’m helping people.
“[But] if you’re not able to mine and keep the value of Bitcoin, it’s going nowhere,” she explained. “
Bitcoin is a very strong currency, and if you have more mining power, you could make more money, and you could do all sorts of things,” Ms Tyshkina said.
“[But] if you’re not able to mine and keep the value of Bitcoin, it’s going nowhere,” she explained.
Ms Williams, however, said the lack on her side of the equation was not affecting her bitcoin purchases. “
There’s a lot of mining power out there, but if you just have no money you’re really not going to make much.”
Ms Williams, however, said the lack on her side of the equation was not affecting her bitcoin purchases.
“We’re just getting a little bit of a push in there, and I think that’s going to keep going for a little while,” she claimed.
“In the long run, I think it’s a very good thing.”
‘No-one can beat me’ The majority of female Bitcoin users seem to be using the alternative digital currency for their daily life, but others have noticed the advantages of the digital currency.
“Litecoin is the new bitcoin, with the more people supporting it, the better,” Ms Emsworth said.
Ms Ebsworth, who also runs a social media website, said her group of female bitcoin users were “getting a lot” of support from other users on Twitter.
“As a group, it definitely seems to be a lot bigger than the old bitcoin,” she commented.
“The biggest problem we’ve been having is that no one can beat us.”
