25 percent of millennials said they are interested in crypto purchasing during the next year, this is 10 percent higher than among Gen X and Baby Boomer generations, a new study by crypto finance company Circle has revealed.
According to the poll, millennial women invest in cryptocurrency at half the rate of men —18 percent of young men and 7 percent of women plan to invest in crypto over the next 12 month. More than 3,000 people from across the Baby Boomer, Gen X and millennial generations in the US were surveyed for the study.
At the same time, market research from the London Block Exchange showed that the number of female investors doubled in the last six months.
“There’s still a common myth that cryptocurrencies is a game for men, but we’ve seen hundreds of women sign up for our exchange in the last few months and some of the most inspiring and knowledgeable investors, leading the way in the industry are female,” London Block Exchange’s senior business analyst Agnes de Roeyer commented.
As a reminder, 42 percent of the world’s top 50 universities offer at least one crypto- and blockchain-related class, according to recent research by Coinbase crypto exchange. The study was conducted by Coinbase jointly with Qriously survey company. A total of 675 U.S. college students from 50 international universities were interviewed. 15 percent of 172 crypto-themed classes reviewed in the study were offered by finance, economics, law and business departments, while 4 percent of classes were in social science departments.
