On Jan. 21, digital payment platform Wirex released a special report devoted to the topic of cryptocurrency adoption in 2021. Compiled in partnership with the Stellar Development Foundation, the report includes survey results from 3,834 people across 89 countries, aiming to understand the latest trends in the global adoption of blockchain-powered digital payments.
According to the survey results, more than 30% of respondents between the ages of 45 and 54 — the largest survey’s age group — were using crypto. The study also found that 26% of women aged from 55 to 64 invested in crypto, compared to 14% of men in the same age group.
Other firms have also noticed a trend of older generations moving into Bitcoin. In June 2020, British crypto trading app Mode reported that Baby Boomers and Generation-X investors increased their monthly crypto investments by a factor of nine amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
