75% of Millennials are More Likely to Date Someone Who is Into Bitcoin
A recently conducted study has reportedly found that 75% of millennials would be more likely to date someone who possesses knowledge about cryptocurrencies. The survey comes amid apparently increasing fascination with millenials’ views regarding cryptocurrencies.
Surveys Probe Millennials’ Views on Crypto
An increasing number of companies have published surveys probing the views held by millennials regarding virtual currencies.
A recent study claims to have found that “Over 75% of millennials [are] more likely to date someone knowledgeable about cryptocurrencies.” Despite the find, the survey also revealed that 12% of respondents would “rather date a non-violent felon” than “someone who has all their savings in cryptocurrency.”
Of the millennial participants, 40% indicated that they currently own cryptocurrencies, with 48% of males and 26% of females reporting to currently hold virtual currencies.
The survey also noted several “interesting items respondents have paid for with cryptocurrency,” including “a dog, a wedding, and 4 cases of Sriracha.”
1 in 10 Millennials Cash Out Crypto to Afford Down Payment on Home
At the start of the month, it was reported that a survey focusing on U.S. resident ages between 24 and 38 who indicated that they were planning to purchase a home in the next 12 months found that 10% of millennials have sold cryptocurrencies in order to finance their down payment.
A U.K. survey of millennials, crypto, and property published last month found that more than one in five (21%) of 21 to 35 year-olds see bitcoin as a better investment than real estate. “For Millennials the soaring performance of Bitcoin – followed by an almost equally profound correction – holds more intrigue than the prospect of steady growth in house prices,” the survey said.
Additionally, a recent survey of 18 to 35-year-old Canadian investors found that 40% describe cryptocurrencies as producing high returns, whilst 39% of all 18 to 34-year-old Canadians identified crypto as a high performing investment.
