Hesse and Saxony. On the territory of two German lands, more than 1,000 citizens were recently surveyed on the topic: Attitudes towards Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies, – as reported by Verbraucherzentrale Hessen.

The results of the survey will probably not surprise anyone: young people are positive about the idea of ​​Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. At the same time, 28% of people between the ages of 18 and 29 say they plan to purchase crypto-coins. The study was not aimed at a specific "tech-savvy" audience. For more accurate results, people from different social backgrounds were selected.

People aged 30 to 39 years thought that investing in cryptocurrency was "dangerous" in more than 50% of cases.

Lisk, head of marketing Thomas Schouten said about the study: "The survey conducted by the German Consumer Center shows a growing interest in cryptography.

The results of the survey in Germany are not very different from the survey conducted more than 3 years ago. On a global scale, both studies by the German Consumer Center showed that almost 80% of Bitcoin owners are young people under 35 years old. Almost 50% of which work with cryptocurrency for at least 2 years.

"More than half (55 percent) of Internet users surveyed know the term "cryptocurrency". But only one of the three can explain the principles of operation and the mechanisms of functioning of crypto-coins. Among those who know "crypto-terms", willingness to invest was declared." – German Consumer Center.
