There are 323.4 million residents in the United States of America. Fourteen percent (14.4%) are African-American women which equates to 18.4 million. Total buying power for all African-Americans is 114% higher than a decade ago at $1.3 trillion today.
Much of that growth is attributed to educational attainment; 2.6 million of Black women have earned 4-year degrees or better. Spending power for African-American women exceed $565 billion. The increased rates of formal education amongst Black Women heighten their adoption of blockchain technology, and digital assets like cryptocurrencies.
Nielsen studies have deemed 54% of all African-Americans as tech-savvy since Gen X, Millennial, and Gen-Z populations have lived entirely in the digital age.  Nielsen further noted that.
These factors contribute to the existence of the Black Women Blockchain Council which is committed to understanding the technology. Learn more at www.BWBC.io
