A recent survey told by research survey YouGov Omnibus shows that half of the American millennials are interested in using cryptocurrency.
The survey, which collected answers from 1202 respondents from August 29-30, assesses the interest of respondents in using crypto in everyday life:
“Of the people who believe that cryptocurrencies will become widely accepted, over one-third (36%) say they would be interested in converting to primarily using a cryptocurrency rather than the U.S. dollar. However, a majority (57%) say they would not be interested in converting away from the U.S. dollar. Millennials are almost equally split between being interested (48%) and not interested (50%).”
According to the poll, 79% of the Americans know that at least one cryptocurrency, where Bitcoin(BTC) appeared to be the most well-known. The leading crypto is familiar to 71 percent of respondents. BTC is followed by the leading altcoin Ethereum (ETH), with 13 percent of participants saying they have heard of it.
87 percent of the people voted that they are interested in cryptocurrency whereas others do not give interest in crypto as there had not purchased cryptocurrency yet so don’t think that it’s a good idea to invest.
Per the survey, only 9 percent of respondents own crypto, while 25 percent said they will own some in the future. 66 percent of Europeans have heard of cryptocurrency, 35 percent agreed that crypto is the “future of spending online,” while 35 percent said it will increase in value in the following 12 months.
