Young men don’t just seem more interested in cryptocurrency than the average person, they actually are: New research shows that almost half of all American men ages 18 to 29 say they have invested in, traded or used a form of cryptocurrency.

Though only 16% of Americans say they have used some kind of cryptocurrency, 43% of men ages 18 to 29 say they have, according to a survey of over 10,000 U.S. adults from Pew Research
There’s a gender gap between crypto users of all ages: 22% of men say they’ve used cryptocurrency, compared to only 10% of women. 
Cryptocurrency is most popular with young adults: 31% of people ages 18 to 29 have used it, compared to 21% of people ages 30 to 49, 8% of people ages 50 to 64 and 3% of people age 65 or over. 
Income status does not appear to have an effect on cryptocurrency use: 17% of upper and middle income people have used cryptocurrency, and 15% of lower income people have. 
86%. That’s how many U.S. adults had heard about cryptocurrency, even somewhat, according to the survey. 
Two popular cryptocurrencies soared to all-time highs this week, making the industry market worth over $3 trillion. Ether, the world’s second-largest coin, jumped 4% Monday to reach a record high of $4,782, though it has since slightly decreased. Bitcoin jumped 6% to $66,095, though it also has since gone down. The surge comes as incoming New York City mayor Eric Adams asked to receive his first paychecks from the city in Bitcoin and said he would create a city-wide crypto coin similar to Miami’s — moves he hopes will make the Big Apple “the center of the cryptocurrency industry.”
