According to a recent study conducted by international data analytics company YouGov, cryptocurrency awareness is spreading like wildfire in the US.
Their data shows that at least one cryptocurrency is known by eight out of ten Americans, which would be unfathomable just a few years ago.
Bitcoin leads the pack
Unsurprisingly, Bitcoin is the most popular cryptocurrency with 75 percent of US adults being aware of its existence. Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum come in second and third places with 24 percent and 17 percent respectively.
The US dollar will stay
40 percent of those respondents who are familiar with the concept of crypto are certain that digital assets will see mainstream adoption before 2030.
However, most of the crypto-savvy Americans (56 percent) are not here for Bitcoin replacing the US dollar.
Millennials drive innovations
Another completely expected revelation is that millennials are the most crypto-friendly demo. For instance, 55 five percent of them believe that crypto will see mainstream acceptance compared to 29 percent of Baby Boomers.
Moreover, millennials are more likely to actually buy cryptocurrencies with 35 percent considering crypto to be a good investment option.
