Study Shows Millennials Favor Bitcoin Over Traditional Banking

This is an interesting post by Joshua Althauser over at CoinTelegraph.com that shows that most millennials now feel that it is safer to put their money in Bitcoin than depositing it into a traditional bank.

Uh-oh! There seems to be a bubble here soon to pop. The youngins have the needle and its the banks that will go poof. This is just my opinion of course.

bitcoin-millennialsOne in four millennials are investing their hard-earned money in the leading digital currency Bitcoin instead of opening traditional bank accounts. They claim that they earn more from their Bitcoin investments and their money is safer, according to a survey.

Based on the survey conducted Blockchain Capital, 70% of the 10,000 millennials who were polled claimed that they are not content with the interest rates offered by banks and almost 65% said that their money is safer in Bitcoin because they personally control it. The survey also showed that nearly two-thirds of female respondents have begun to branch out from Bitcoin and invested in other digital currencies in order to diversify their portfolio.

Other highlights of the survey

Despite their preference of Bitcoin as a form of investment, slightly less than 50% of the millennials surveyed said that they are also looking for a more convenient form of banking and 45% stated that they want their banks to integrate Bitcoin wallets in their operation so that they can directly invest in cryptocurrencies through their existing bank accounts.

The survey also estimated that the majority of millennials will invest around two-thirds of their savings into virtual currencies. According to the site founder Andrew Sung, the survey results showed that the younger generation is much quicker to embrace new technologies than their older counterparts.

“The younger generation has been notoriously quicker to act on new technologies, including the latest smartphones, which have enabled millennials to invest in Bitcoin over the last few years, before large hedge funds and financial institutions started to get involved.”
