A Majority of Americans Have Heard of Crypto or Bitcoin, Poll Shows

Read Time:1 Minute

– Despite growing mainstream adoption, many Americans still have no idea what cryptocurrencies are, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin, according to a recent Harris Poll survey.

– Harris Poll surveyed nearly 2,000 Americans in mid-February. The survey revealed a surprising result: over one in 10 adults in the U.S. still have not heard of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin.

– Only 16% of respondents said that they were very familiar with crypto like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin. Around half of surveyed respondents said they had come across the names before.

– However, an overwhelming number – 61% – of respondents said that they had limited to no understanding of how these digital assets functioned.

– Four percent of respondents familiar with the digital assets believe that Bitcoins price may someday plummet to $0. Eight percent predict it might climb over $100,000.

– Almost half of respondents 43% are skeptical that crypto constitutes a valid payment method, while nearly a third of surveyed Americans think crypto might vanish within the net days. Only 34% expect crypto to become a standard payment method.

– Age did not directly correspond to trust or optimism about cryptocurrency. Nearly 60% of Gen Z respondents aged between 18 and 24 said that crypto constituted a “very” or “somewhat” valid payment method, while nearly 70% of millennials, or 25 to 40 year olds, said the same.
