New Survey: A Third Of Young Americans Used, Traded Or Invested In Crypto

It’s been revealed that about a third of the young Americans have used, traded or invested digital assets. This is according to a new survey and you can check out more data about all this below.

According to the latest reposts coming from the online publication the Daily Hodl, Washington-based think tank Pew Research Center revealed that a considerable number of young American adults have dabbled in cryptos.

Most Americans are familiar with crypto

Based on results from a new survey, Pew says that most Americans are familiar with digital assets.

“Overall, 86% of Americans say they have heard at least a little about cryptocurrencies, including 24% who say they have heard a lot about them, according to the survey of U.S. adults, conducted Sept. 13th-19th, 2021.”

Pew’s research is also noting that younger Americans are more likely to say they have used cryptocurrencies compared to their older counterparts.

“Roughly three-in-ten Americans ages 18 to 29 (31%) say they have ever invested in, traded or used a cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin (BTC) or Ethereum (ETH) compared with smaller shares of adults in older age groups.”

The study is also highlighting the differences between genders. The same notes are saying that American men are more likely than women to use crypto, especially when comparing younger age groups.

“Men are about twice as likely as women to say they ever used a cryptocurrency (22% vs. 10%). These differences are especially pronounced when looking at age and gender together.”

The notes continued and said the following:

“About four-in-ten men ages 18 to 29 (43%), for example, say they have ever invested in, traded or used a cryptocurrency, compared with 19% of women in the same age range.”
