American HODLers weather crypto winter
2022 was a brutal year for crypto, with price crashes, crypto scams and schemes and bankruptcies, highlighting the overall negative picture that engulfed the industry. However, despite the events and all, the number of people in the US who own digital assets “remained largely unchanged.”
Per the report published on 27 February, 20% of the US adult population (which would be more than 66 million going by projected census as of January 2023) said they own crypto assets. In fact, crypto ownership as of 23 February 2023 was largely comparable to the historic numbers recorded in early 2022.
However, going by key crypto statistics for US, the number has increased from about 16% in 2021.
It is also noted that 76% of crypto owners see cryptocurrencies and blockchain as the future, with the majority being the younger population. Of these numbers, 54% of Gen Z and 55% of Millennials say crypto is the future.
