A survey among 2068 Americans conducted by the Finder website showed that since 2018, the number of Americans owning cryptocurrencies has almost doubled.

Finder researchers concluded that about 36.5 million people in the US own cryptocurrencies of some kind – on average, in the amount of $ 5447, while 75% of them make an average of only $ 360.

The same survey showed that more than half of cryptocurrency owners store more than one cryptocurrency. 55.4% of Bitcoin owners (BTC) said they also have altcoins .

As in previous Finder polls, there were almost twice as many male owners of cryptocurrencies as women.

61% of cryptocurrency owners surveyed said they purchase cryptocurrencies as an investment, while 29.3% use cryptocurrencies for transactions. 26.5% believe that cryptocurrencies help them keep wealth “outside the traditional financial system,” thereby hedging it.

47.9% of respondents who do not have cryptocurrencies consider them difficult to use, and 23% say that this is a “risky occupation." 45% of respondents from the same group simply never were interested in digital currencies.

Previously, an ING Bank survey showed that 32% of Europeans associate the future of online payments with cryptocurrencies, while more than half of those polled mistakenly stated that “cryptocurrencies are accepted at most retail outlets in the world.”
