According to the digital asset management company Grayscale Investments, more than 30% of American investors are interested in investing in cryptocurrencies.
The researchers stressed that this should be a “Wake – up call” for financial advisers-they should start taking cryptocurrencies into account and explore this area.
“More than a third of American investors are interested in digital assets such as bitcoin. It’s time for financial advisers to advise this asset class, ” the company said on the social network Twitter.
Note that Grayscale Investments is the world’s largest cryptocurrency investment management company. According to the latest data, the firm has assets worth $5.5 billion under management.
Analysts expect that in the near future, the savings of the Boomer generation, estimated at $65 trillion, will pass to the millennial generation. Millennials are more willing to invest in digital assets, so Grayscale predicts an increase in the flow of funds to cryptocurrencies in the coming years.
According to a study by the analytical division of JPMorgan Bank, the older generation of investors prefer to invest in gold, while younger investors are happy to buy bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.
