Californians Top US Bitcoin Owners List

Californians Top US Bitcoin Owners List

Californians are the top crypto owners in the United States, according to crypto exchange Coinbase, who has published a new report detailing the trends of adoption and awareness towards digital assets in the United States.

The survey, which covers the last 12 months, showed that crypto awareness in the US continues to grow, with as much as 58% of the 2,000 participants saying that they had heard about Bitcoin. Of these, many expressed a strong desire to use digital currency as a diversification strategy in investment and were very enthused with the idea of a worldwide currency and the promise of low transfer fees.

Following Californians in the top 10 states with the most crypto owners were those from New Jersey, Washington, New York, Colorado, Utah, Florida, Alaska, Nevada, and Massachusetts. Interestingly, while states such as Delaware, Nevada, and Wyoming recorded a lower overall percentage of crypto owners, they actually had a higher concentration or per capita — fewer holders but holding more than the average crypto owner.

When queried about the motivations behind buying crypto, many said that it was an investment opportunity into a new technology, and an opportunity for education. One even said:

“… for people in my generation, I think it makes a lot more sense than stocks, bonds, inflated real estate, or other depreciating assets.”

The report also gives a simple demonstration of how popular Bitcoin has become, using the same example BitcoinNews.com did a few weeks ago:

“If you want to get a sense of how interested America is in a topic, there aren’t many better benchmarks than Kim Kardashian, whose social-media dominance gives her an outsized slice of our collective consciousness. Since the beginning of this year, one of the rare ideas that grabbed even more of our attention is Bitcoin. On average, Google users have searched for Bitcoin more often than they sought out info on Kim K., and that number is only trending upwards.”

Google Trends Show Bitcoin More Popular Than Trump, Kardashians

Google Trends Show Bitcoin More Popular Than Trump, Kardashians

It can be hard to imagine that there are more popular topics than the main headlines in politics and entertainment, but the hard numbers prove that Bitcoin is, in fact, more popular than US President Donald Trump and American glamour girl Kim Kardashian.

That is, according to Google Trends today, anyway. The statistical analysis shows that the specific term “Bitcoin” is one of the leading ones on the world’s most used search engine, consistently outperforming other popular terms over the past few years. Google also finds that people prefer to use the term “crypto” rather than “cryptocurrency” when searching for it online.

Information published in a company blog by blockchain enterprise solutions for Ethereum, ConsenSys, provides undisputed data to show that “Bitcoin” is in fact more frequently looked up on Google than other globally popular terms.

Apparently, “Donald Trump” and “Bitcoin” have been locked in a head-to-head battle for dominance over the past year, but the 2019 rally in recent months have seen the latter come out on top. It suggests that rising Bitcoin prices bring about a natural curiosity and inclination for people to come online and Google the digital asset. It backs up the theory held by many that when prices rise, so does interest, and it happens in a cyclical fashion.

Google Trends shows that other terms popular in tech such as “Tesla” and in entertainment such as “Kim Kardashian” were also included in ConsenSys’s comparison. Bitcoin has finally reached parity with Tesla after playing second fiddle for 12 months, but the Kardashian has never been able to pip Bitcoin.

Bitcoin News also ran a report recently that showed that interest in Bitcoin on Google had hit its highest levels since February 2018, when the Bitcoin price was at the beginning of its long decline last year.
