Research: a quarter of Americans of generation Y own cryptocurrencies

Published

Most of the wealthy American millennials either already own or want to buy bitcoins or other cryptocurrencies. This is the conclusion reached by the authors of the research Millenials With Money from the company Edelman.

According to them, 25% of secured millenials already own cryptocurrencies. Another 31% are actively interested in this topic.

Researchers consider Americans between the ages of 24 and 38 years old to be wealthy with a personal or family income of $ 100,000 per year or $ 50,000 in investment.

At the same time, the report says, the millennials are unhappy with the current financial system. Of the 1,000 respondents, 77% of the wealthy and 65% of Americans who do not belong to this category believe that the current system is in the interests of only the rich and powerful people.

Three-quarters of the well-to-do millennials fear that the global financial system will be hacked and their personal data stolen. The same concerns are shared by 58% of the “poor” millennials.

It is noteworthy that both categories of respondents are united in the expectation of another global financial crisis in the future, and all of them expect that the blockchain technology will make the financial system more secure.

Earlier this month it was reported that only 1% of Russians would like to receive a salary in bitcoins.
