This survey also uncorked a major generational divide; while older millionaires still have no clue what cryptocurrency does or NFT means, the baby boomer tycoons examined reported more than 10 percent of their funds in cryptocurrency. Interestingly, 83% of American millionaires have none of their wealth in crypto, and just one in 10 preserve greater than 10% of their wealth in crypto belongings.

The younger investors were more intellectually engaged with the idea even though it was new.

We see increasingly more suppliers providing entry to crypto investing. It’s altering quick.” We have seen glorious examples of people turning into overnight millionaires thanks to Crypto, and it surely resembles the future of wealth.
