A new study by Crypto Finance Circle demonstrates that women, representatives of generation Y, invest in digital currencies twice as often as male millennials.
More than 3,000 people from the United States participated in the Crypto Finance Circle survey. The study focused on issues related to investment, risk assessment, as well as the attitude to a new class of financial assets – cryptocurrencies.
According to the poll, 25% of the Millenials stated that they are interested in buying digital currencies within the next 12 months. From a gender perspective, 17% of men announced plans to purchase cryptocurrencies, while only 8% of women share the same plans.
The survey showed that 71% of respondents invested less than $1,000 in digital assets, of which 42% invested up to $500 and 29% invested $500- $1000. 29% of representatives of generation Y invested more than $1,000.
According to the results of the YouGov poll, about 80% of US citizens have at least once heard of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. A little less than 50% of the polled millennials are interested in using cryptocurrency as a regular means of payment. It also turned out that every fourth investor in the US is interested in bitcoins, but so far it is not planning a purchase, a recent Gallup poll showed.
