A recent study carried out by Finbold has shown that out of ten people, only one answered they had no intention of ever investing in cryptocurrencies. Given the fact that digital assets are still not considered to be widely popular, these are rather interesting results.
The survey was conducted on a sample of 9,000 adults aged 18-64 across 17 countries, accounting for North America, Latin America, Asia-Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
Further results concluded that about a third of the interviewed had already owned cryptocurrencies, despite the fact that 60% of them stated they did not understand the intricacies of digital assets to the full extent.
Unsurprisingly, once again, the survey has confirmed that cryptocurrencies enjoy the greatest popularity among young people, namely the so-called Gen-Y and Gen-Z, as nearly 50% of them stated they had owned crypto. Moreover, while the younger generation views digital assets as a form of currency, those aged 41-56 tend to think of them as long-term investments.
The recent trends in public polls seem to confirm the growing popularity of crypto and digital assets as such in the mainstream. With regulatory clarity getting more precise by the day, the global acceptance of crypto does not seem like such a far reach anymore.
