About 3% of American retirees claimed to own some bitcoin (BTC), according to a new survey conducted by Gold IRA Guide magazine in April.
Gold IRA Guide received responses from 1,000 American retirees over 50 years old about their thoughts on investing in bitcoin. 56.7% of respondents were not interested to invest though were aware of the cryptocurrency, meanwhile 2.7% of the retirees claimed that they own some bitcoin.
According to the survey, 3.5% of respondents said that they wouldn’t mind to invest in bitcoin, but did not know where to begin, while 4.5% of retirees are interested in investing in bitcoin, but decided to keep an eye on it instead of real investments. With that, 32.9% of respondents have answered that they “have no idea what bitcoin is.”
