25% of Australian crypto users plan to buy crypto-related Christmas gifts
Crypto.com, a well-known cryptocurrency exchange, decided to survey Australian citizens and ask what they would buy as Christmas gifts.
The survey covered more than 2,000 Australians between the ages of 18 and 59. Notably, 26% of all respondents confirmed that they had used cryptocurrencies in the last 12 months. These same respondents also said they considered cryptocurrencies as a Christmas gift or planned to buy gifts related to virtual assets.
53% of those about to make cryptocurrency-related gifts responded that they would like to involve their relatives or friends in crypto by making them owners of crypto assets for Christmas. The most common gifts included Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) coins.
The rest of the respondents showed almost equal interest in:
- crypto vouchers;
- books on blockchain and virtual assets;
- non-fungible tokens (NFT)
Justin El-Sheikh, 18, from Melbourne, plans to give his friends wallets with small balances in BTC so that they can start using cryptocurrencies. He said that many of his friends had heard about cryptocurrencies, were interested in them, but didn't know where to start. So, they definitely won't forget such an unusual gift.
