Bitcoin and Crypto Has Introduced Millennials to Investing in Markets, Despite Fears

The digital asset strategist and director at VanEck subsidiary MV Index Solutions believes that Bitcoin and other crypto have introduced investing in markets to a “new generation of investors.” While the executive didn’t explicitly call out millennials in his comments, data shows that millennials have gravitated more to crypto markets while showing a strong reluctance toward traditional markets such as stocks and real estate. However, the education and exposure Bitcoin and crypto provides could cause young investors to try their hand in other markets. Millennials also grew up alongside the dot com boom, and watched the internet develop from a misunderstood and demonized technology – much like crypto today – become a mainstay of everyday life, so it comes as no surprise that millennials are welcoming to investing in crypto versus other markets.
