According to a recent tweet posted by Coinbase co-founder Fred Ehrsam, a whopping 10 percent of people now own cryptocurrencies in the United States.
This means that roughly 33 million Americans have purchased crypto, which appears to be an incredibly large number.
Since Ehrsam’s pithy tweet didn’t include a link to any survey that would back up his claim, many took the aforementioned data with a pinch of salt.
According to a Coinbase survey that was published back in 2019, 58 percent of Americans were aware of Bitcoin. California, New Jersey, and Washington were named as the states with the highest level of participation in the cryptocurrency economy.
