Over a third (36%) of US investors would consider an investment in Bitcoin. What attracts them in particular is that they can start by investing small sums in Bitcoin. The potential for growth and the limited availability also argue in favor of an investment in Bitcoin.
These are the principal findings of a survey of 1100 US investors aged between 25 and 64 carried out by Q8 Research on behalf of crypto currency asset manager Grayscale.
The factors cited as a deterrent to investing in crypto currencies include primarily the lack of regulation and theft on the exchanges. Investors with an interest in Bitcoin are often in their middle years. They are also somewhat more experienced and risk-tolerant than the average investor. Although an enthusiasm for Bitcoin is generally associated with American youth, most prospective investors (70%) are parents.
