According to a recent survey by the Pew Research Center, nearly half of U.S. investors who invested in cryptocurrencies expected better results.
As part of the study, the Pew Research Center surveyed 6,000 randomly selected U.S. residents. Of the citizens surveyed, only 16% invested in cryptocurrencies, and 71% of Americans reported that they did not invest in digital assets. At the same time, 12% of respondents said that they had never heard of bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies.
Of those Americans who invested in cryptocurrencies, only 15% reported “incomes higher than expected.” The profit of 31% of respondents was comparable to the expected, and another 46% of US residents who invested in cryptocurrency reported insufficient profitability.
Most investors investing in cryptocurrencies have chosen this asset class simply as a “new way of investing.” Also, Americans often bought cryptocurrencies for quick profits.
A recent survey by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) found that only 20% of cryptocurrency owners consider their investment approach risky.
