Cryptocurrency is owned by 14% of Americans, according to the results of a study conducted by the Gemini cryptocurrency exchange. The survey, which was conducted from October 19 to November 16, 2020, involved 3,000 respondents aged 18 to 65, living in households with an annual income of $ 40,000 or more.
If we extrapolate the figure of 14% to the entire population of the United States, it turns out that over 21 million Americans own the cryptocurrency. Gemini predicts that their number will double in 2021.
74% of cryptocurrency holders in the US are male, and 77% of cryptocurrency holders are under 45. 71% of cryptocurrency holders are white.
The average American who owns cryptocurrency is 38 years old and makes about $ 111,000 a year.
The number of Americans who do not own cryptocurrencies, but are interested in them, exceeds the number of owners of “numbers” by 4.5 times and is 63% of the US adult population. About 13% of Americans plan to buy cryptocurrency in the next 12 months.
The share of whites among Americans who are interested in cryptocurrency is 76%.
