50% of Americans Willing to Try Out Bitcoin


A new poll conducted by analytics firm Harris Insights and cryptocurrency startup Gem revealed that 50 percent of the respondents are inclined to try out the asset class. The survey also revealed that those with lower incomes are more likely to buy Bitcoin.

A new survey jointly held by a cryptocurrency startup and analytics company held among 2,000 adults reveals that half of the respondents are “willing to try out the new asset class”, Fortune reports.

The poll also reveals that around 8 percent of the interviewed have already invested and their preferred cryptocurrencies are Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC).

nterestingly enough, those who earn more, invest less. Only six percent of the households earning more than $100,000 per year own some digital currencies while this number grows to 11 percent in those earning between $50,000 and $74,900.

What is more, even those earning less than $50,000 invest more – around 7 percent of them own cryptocurrencies, according to the survey.
