Bitget Survey Reveals Younger Generation’s High Interest in Cryptocurrencies.
Bitget recently shared results from a survey revealing that younger generations, including Millennials and Gen Z, are interested in using cryptocurrencies in the future.
Bitget conducted research for almost seven months, involving 255,000 people from about 26 countries in Africa, Asia and Europe. The respondents were categorized into four groups based on their age: Millennials, Gen X-ers, Gen Z, and Baby Boomers.
The survey showed that many Millennials and Gen Z already own digital assets and are interested in cryptocurrencies. Bitget plans to hand over the responsibility of promoting crypto to the younger generation through Blockchain4Youth.
Gracy Chen, the Managing Director of Bitget, has said in a statement that the exchange wants to educate young people about blockchain and Web3 technology to ensure a future where everyone is connected to the blockchain. She added that Bitget plans to use its global influence to launch meaningful projects that will empower the younger generation.
Binance, a popular cryptocurrency exchange, has been expanding its Web3.0 ecosystem through various inclusion strategies, such as its recent expansion into Japan. Binance acquired a Japanese crypto firm called Sakura Exchange Bitcoin Co. (SEBC) last year, and plans to start operating in Japan in June.
