US Cryptocurrency Ownership Rates
Bitcoin (44%) is the most popular coin among US crypto owners, followed by Ethereum and Dogecoin (32% each).
Finder.com’s crypto editor Keegan Francis is not surprised that adoption is low in the United States, as awareness of cryptocurrencies is much lower than in the other countries surveyed.
