People interested in Bitcoin represent less than 1 percent of the world’s population, and are most likely to be males under 34 years old holding university degrees, data from Facebook Audience Insights suggests.
Only 20-25 million of Facebook’s roughly 2.5 billion users qualify as being interested in “Bitcoin,” approximately 0.3 percent of the global population. Assuming this figure is representative of the remaining members of the world that, despite having access to the internet, do not have Facebook accounts, it is unlikely than more than 0.5 percent of people identify as having an interest in BTC globally.
Young, single men most likely to be keen on Bitcoin
Men—young men in particular—appear to be far more interested in Bitcoin than women, representing 76 percent of the group. As can be seen below, male and female BTC enthusiasts are most likely to be between 25 and 34 years of age, and highly unlikely to be over 55.
Intriguingly, people with an interest in Bitcoin are 23 percent more likely to be single, and 36 percent more likely to hold a postgraduate degree than the rest of the population, based on self-reported data. 71 percent claim to have an undergraduate degree, making them 6 percent more educated than the global average.
Individuals working in information technology (IT), computation, mathematics, and technical services seem particularly partial to the number-one crypto by market capitalization—more likely to have an interest than those working in business and finance.
U.S. war veterans and people working in the military have the least interest in BTC. Iraq veteran Anthony “Pomp” Pompliano, perhaps Bitcoin’s most omnipotent cheerleader, would evidently be the exception.
