Cryptocurrency Will Comprise 5% Of Investors Portfolio In 2019, Study Shows

While cryptocurrencies are being touted as the bleeding edge when we talk about market investing, it is still highly volatile and though it can generate big rewards and earnings for the ones that are brave enough to invest in them, it can also bring heavy losses to people unfortunate enough to invest while a drop occurs. This accompanied with recent studies that show that the market can and effectively is being manipulated by certain groups, should be enough to discourage people from investing in cryptocurrency.
But as a matter of a fact, it has done nothing of the sort. The people that declare that will invest in crypto says that it will invest at least 5% of their total portfolio of investments regardless of all these factors mentioned early, according to a poll carried out by The Harris Poll, one of the longest-running surveys measuring public opinion in the US. They also found some more interesting facts regarding cryptocurrencies as investments.
According to them, the problem with cryptocurrencies is that they are strange or unknown to more than the half of the American people. Most people still don’t know about cryptocurrencies, so there is still a long road to massify the use of there assets as payment and investment options.
Also, cryptocurrency investors were also the boldest of the bunch: from the people that agreed to invest in cryptocurrency, more than 30% agreed to do so thinking that the price will still swing heavily during the next year, and less than 10% think that the volatility will stop and the prices will stabilize.
While cryptocurrencies have gone a long road and now are considered as a viable but niche option to invest in, there are still a long ways to be a rival to more established markets like the stock markets; but investors that are willing to put their money in them are aware of the risks that they are taking.
