A survey was carried across 17 European countries to research about the cryptocurrency holders by Bitpanda, a fintech based in Vienna, in alliance to the GlobalwebIndex. The primary purpose of the survey was to throw light on the cryptocurrency investors in Europe and proffer an insight into their significant attitudes that differed them from the average handful of investors.
Eric Demuth, CEO at Bitpanda, regarding his survey, narrated people how he wanted to “demystify the people that shape the cryptocurrency industry.”
As per the reports, the critical point of the data involved the challenge to the stereotype as 1 of every five investors of cryptocurrency were women, signifying an ascending diversity. 40% of these women are above the age of 35.
Chief Research Officer at GlobalWebIndex, Jason Mander commented, “When it comes to attitudes, there’s very little difference between men and women. The slight differences pale when we compare cryptocurrency holders to the general public”.
Secondly, the cryptocurrency holders have appeared to be young, highly-educated, high-income males working in European financial sectors in IT, engineering, or finance. They have the technical knowledge and incline towards risk-taking. Along with this, it has been reported that the digital currency holders possess an exceptional sight of economic empowerment and seek originality.
Confirming the protection of privacy and valuation of the latest technological products by the cryptocurrency holders, Demuth honored the survey remarking, “I’m hoping this report will help everyone to understand better who these people are, what their attitudes are, as well as their lifestyle, finance & investment behaviors.”
The survey did mark a significance as it highlighted the change in diversity and also challenges other reports which include more than 90% of men.
