One in four millennials are interested in investing in cryptocurrencies over the next year.
Crypto payments startup Circle conducted a survey of more than 3,000 individuals earlier this week, finding that a majority of millennial investors believe themselves to be “agresivo,” according to the results. Three different generations were interviewed –millennials, generation x and baby boomers.
The Goldman Sachs-backed payment platform used Survey Monkey to collect its results, though only it only published responses from users who identified as “aggressive investors.”
Notably, the results found that nearly twice as many men invest in cryptocurrencies than women, showing that 42 percent of male millennials, 34 percent of gen xers and 16 percent of baby boomers have looked into asset classes like cryptocurrencies, versus 27 percent of millennial women, 19 percent of gen xers and 9 percent of baby boomers.
Por separado, and perhaps unsurprisingly, the survey found that as investors get older, the percentage of “agresivo” investors drop, de 65 percent of millennials to only 25 percent of baby boomers.
The insight that women are a minority in the crypto space is not novel. The social trading platform, eToro, surveyed its users this past May. Their report revealed that only 8.5 percent of all users, who identified as ‘female’, were women. A partir de marzo, the company had over 9 millones de usuarios.
