Millennials represent a large population segment in the United States. Currently, Millennials dominate cryptocurrency investing, according to the data gathered on Coin Dance. Further, millennials are more likely to invest in cryptocurrency. On the other hand, they are skeptical about investing in the stock market. Edelman, a communications and marketing firm, reported that 25% of wealthy millennials own or are using cryptocurrency. In addition, another 31% are considering using cryptocurrency in the future.
Millennials also have an interest in peer-to-peer (P2P) lending and other cryptocurrency financial tools. MintDice explained that the rapid development of P2P cryptocurrency lending allows lenders to connect with borrowers. In a case study by MarketWatch, a millennial engineer expressed enthusiasm that cryptocurrencies “have the potential to replace bank lending, financial litigation and a lot of things that make life incredibly complicated for ordinary people.”
