According to a recent survey by the trading platform eToro, many single men and women are looking for partners who are not only financially stable but also knowledgeable about cryptocurrencies. 33% of US participants admitted that they are more likely to date someone who deals in digital assets.
Crypto makes people more desirable
In addition to diversifying one’s portfolio and providing potential for higher returns, cryptocurrencies could also make investors look more attractive in the romance scene, eToro research revealed.
Every third participant said they are more likely to date a cryptocurrency holder than a person who has not delved into the digital asset space. Furthermore, almost 75% admitted that they would go on a second date with a person who paid the bill in bitcoin (BTC).
There are numerous restaurants and cafes in the United States that accept the main cryptocurrency as a payment method. Such examples are Colorado-based Quiznos and the multinational coffeehouse chain, Starbucks.
People delving into the universe of non-fungible tokens also have their chances. According to the survey, 20% of singles would be more romantically interested if their admirer sets an NFT as their profile picture on a social platform or dating site.
According to estimates from the Pew Research Center, 16% of Americans have already allocated part of their wealth to the cryptocurrency market. Younger men between 18 and 29 years old (most active in the dating scene) are the most interested in the asset class. 43% of them have already immersed themselves in the digital asset industry. By comparison, only 19% of women under the age of 30 invest in bitcoin or altcoins.
The general awareness of cryptocurrencies among US citizens is also at a high level. 86% of survey participants admitted to having basic knowledge about the asset class.
Every fourth US investor owns BTC
According to another survey conducted by the world’s largest digital asset manager, Grayscale, 26% of US investors hold bitcoin. Furthermore, 60% of the participants admitted to being interested in cryptocurrency investments.
Subsequently, Grayscale estimated that 55% of current BTC holders in the States have jumped on the bandwagon in the last 12 months.
Cryptocurrency exchange Huobi went further, stating that 7 out of 10 holders entered the market in 2021. According to the company’s research, only 9% started investing in the asset class more than four years ago.
Nearly one in two investors disclosed having allocated $1,000 or less in crypto, while 25% said they had invested between $1,000 and $10,000.
