A survey among 2068 Americans by Finder showed that since 2018, the number of Americans owning cryptocurrencies has almost doubled.

Researchers Finder concluded that about36.5 million people in the United States own one or another cryptocurrency - an average of $ 5447, while 75% of them invest on average only $ 360.

The same survey showed that more than half of cryptocurrency owners store more than one cryptocurrency. 55.4% of Bitcoin owners (BTC) said they also have altcoins.

As in previous Finder polls, there were almost twice as many male owners of cryptocurrencies as women.

61% of cryptocurrency owners surveyed saidthat they acquire cryptocurrencies as investments, while 29.3% use cryptocurrencies for transactions. 26.5% believe that cryptocurrencies help them keep wealth “outside the traditional financial system,” thereby hedging it.

47.9% of respondents who do not have cryptocurrenciesconsider them difficult to use, and 23% say that this is a "risky occupation." 45% of respondents from the same group simply never were interested in digital currencies.

An ING Bank survey previously showed that 32% of Europeansconnect the future of online payments with cryptocurrencies, while more than half of the respondents mistakenly stated that "cryptocurrencies are accepted at most retail outlets in the world."
