Crisis to the rescue: 40% of millennial investors will invest in crypto during the collapse of the economy

Millennials are ready to massively transfer their money to crypto-assets if another crisis occurs in the world. At least that's what the eToro study claims.


Millennials will throw out stocks and go into crypto during a crisis

The eToro Investment Platform conducted a study among 1000 American investors from different generations. It turned out that two-thirds of them fear the next crisis in the near future. Moreover, in the case of a recession, each generation has its own plan. This is reported by Cointelegraph

According to the study, 40% of the polled millennials “exit” the stock and invest their money in crypto-assets during the crisis. 50% of respondents from generation Z in this case would prefer to hedge risks through real estate. And 38% of representatives of generation X will invest in commodity assets.
