Crypto News

Crypto has been used, invested in or traded by 21% of Americans polled by NBC last month.

Cryptocurrency has been used, invested in, or traded by one in five Americans, according to a recent poll by NBC News.

The poll was conducted between March 18 and 22 and involved 1,000 Americans. Among the key findings: 21% of participants have already gotten involved with crypto in some capacity. 

Men aged 18 to 49 were the biggest share of demographic groups, as about half said they had been involved with crypto. They were joined by 42% of people aged 18 to 34.

In terms of viewpoints on the industry as a whole, NBC’s poll found that “only 19% of those polled by NBC News said they view crypto positively and 25% indicated they view it in a negative light.” The remainder expressed neutrality or were unsure. 

The findings come as the US government continues to hammer out its approach to crypto regulation.

President Joe Biden’s White House released a research-centric executive order last month, pushing for the investigation of different areas well as a US-focused central bank digital currency. Congress, too, is pursuing regulatory approaches on numerous fronts, which could reshape how agencies like the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission conduct oversight of US-based firms.
