Blockchain and crypto awareness in the United States is highest among the young, per a new survey. But few people know the difference between the two terms, and many think Bitcoin (BTC) and blockchain are one and the same thing, despite the fact that BTC and altcoins are now grabbing headlines in the mainstream media.
These were the findings of a Forte-commissioned survey of more than 2,000 consumers and their behaviors toward virtual goods in games carried out by Vorhaus Advisors and shared with Our.
The report’s authors wrote,
“Only 18% of United States adults say they’ve used a product or service related to blockchain, but this rises to 25% among the 18-34 demographic.”
And 63% of gamers responded that they would be keen to spend more on game-related cryptoassets and blockchain if they saw “virtual goods had real-world value, and could be traded or sold.”
Furthermore, more than a third of the total sample and almost 50% of the 18-34 year age group said their trust in blockchain was “strong or complete.”
Meanwhile, at the time of writing (14:40 UTC), BTC trades at USD 18,952 and is down by 1.4% in a day and 1% in a week. The price rallied by 24% in a month and 151% in a year.
