Dogecoin More Popular Than NFTs For Gen Z
A survey by betting app Gamblers Pick recently found that nearly a quarter of young, new crypto investors are actively investing in meme-driven digital assets like Dogecoin. The "meme" sector, as CryptoSlate data shows, commands more than 3.43% of the entire crypto market cap.
The study interviewed 872 people about their investment strategies to explore how different generations were investing across financial markets. 24% of the respondents were ‘Gen Zers’ (born between late 1990-early 2010s), 27% were millennials (born between 1980-1995), 25% were Gen Xers (mid-1960s to early 80s), and 24% were baby boomers or older (post the world wars and 1960s).
A quarter of respondents said that they invest frequently, and only 12% said they rarely did it. On a generational level, over 28% of Gen Zers said they were constantly investing.
According to the survey, a staggering 55% of Gen Zers said they were investing majorly in the stock market against the 46% who said they paid long-term crypto bets. Interestingly, 23% said they actively invested in ‘memes’ (think Dogecoin, Shiba Inu, and others).
16% of Gen Xers said they invested in meme coins as well, while 7% of baby boomers stated they dabbled in memes. Only 9% of the surveyed participants said they made investments in digital collectibles or non-fungible tokens (NFTs), with other generations investing even less - 7% for millennials, 2% for Gen Xers, and 3% for Baby Boomers.
As per the data, Gen Zers were less likely to invest in NFTs but more likely to invest in clothing and sneakers instead. The survey discovered Gen Z’s investment habits were more likely to be influenced by Reddit, Twitter, and other social media, while older generations are more likely to have their investments influenced by magazines, newspapers, and TV.
Ethereum Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Ethereum price will continue to slump under the negative market momentum and drop towards the $3,000 support narrier. A further break will take it to the 50-day SMA($2,765).
