Seen by many as a financial revolution and a global technological development, the cryptocurrency industry is prevalent among people younger than 40-years-old. With that said, it is no wonder that more than a third of those born between 1980 and 1996 and 51% of those born 1997-2012 would like to receive half of their salaries in bitcoin and/or alternative coins, a recent deVere Group study determined.
Nigel Green – CEO and Founder of the company – explained that youngsters find the asset class attractive due to the technological developments happening when they were kids. Influenced by the “enormous surge” in innovations throughout their life span, they are the ones to understand the “massive potential of digital currencies.”
