These numbers are really intriguing, but what do you mean for "2 % of investors"? Is it 2% of the popukation (I don't think so) and if not what do you consider to be an "investor"?

That's a good point. The article says the poll is "based on U.S. adults with $10,000 or more invested in stocks, bonds or mutual funds, either within or outside a retirement savings account". It'd be interesting to see the same poll based off a more general representation of the population.

Ok, this is altering the poll completely since most of the population in the USA owns absolutely nothing - in fact they are in debt, ie they owe money instead of owning it.

A big role is played by the negative attitude of America to the cryptocurrencies. If the situation was different investors would be much more. It seems to me that the real numbers are higher, since not everyone likes to associate their communication with the cryptocurrencies.

Regulations and Governments policy is not much helpful for US Bitcoiners, I guess its rather de-motivating.

A recent Gallup poll (linked below) showed that only 2% of U.S. investors own any bitcoin, and 26% are intrigued. Think about those numbers for a second...

If even a small portion of those who are intrigued start to invest, the movement could be huge. Granted these are just numbers for the US, but statistics should be somewhat similar around the world. It seems we are still in the early stages. I know it may seem slow to many of us who have been following bitcoin for years, but don't lose faith, just think about the math and hodl!

Then that would be good since a lot of people from different kinds of places will still get a change to have their own set of Bitcoins.
