Harris Poll Survey: Crypto Still Considered a Billionaire-Maker Investment
Although some investors have lost confidence due to the recent global downturn and subsequent price declines in crypto and traditional stock markets, many cryptocurrency investors remain optimistic. Harris Poll conducted a survey in July that revealed that cryptocurrency investors remain optimistic about the industry's future.
Harris Poll interviewed close to 2000 Americans about their opinions on billionaires and the society's perception of them. 71% of cryptocurrency investors polled believed that they could become billionaires in the future. This is a significant percentage compared to 44% for all other groups.
The poll also revealed that 60% of those surveyed said they would like to be billionaires, and that they admire the women and men who are part of this elite group.
Gen Z and Millennials are Confident Too
Survey results show that Gen Zers, millennials and others are confident about their chances of becoming billionaires. These people are often associated with financial technologies like fintech and crypto.
A survey by Devere group in 2020 found that two-thirds of millennials preferred bitcoin over gold as a safe haven investment. Nigel Green, founder and CEO of Devere, stated that at the time:
The findings that millennials prefer bitcoin to gold are consistent with that of the cryptocurrency's growing popularity as a safe-haven asset.
Green also mentioned that the rising interest in crypto by younger generations is linked to the inflation and devaluation global economies are experiencing due to the high level of unbacked fiat currency. According to Green, bitcoin's unique characteristics make it superior to gold and traditional fiat currencies. They are non-sovereign and decentralized and scarce. It also has a store value.
