A recent study exploring the investments customs of Canadians discovered that 40 percent of Ontario’s resident shareholders have sold their cryptocurrency holdings.

40% of Ontario Investors have sold their Crypto Holdings

The research put out from the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has been conducted to assess the customs of those spent in cryptocurrency and the amount of understanding individuals that invest possess of their nascent sector.

The analysis which concentrated on the 14 million individual population of Ontario state (over 38 percent of their countrys general inhabitants ) found that only 5 percent of its inhabitants or roughly a half a million adults over age 18 are spent in the cryptocurrency marketplace. While 4 percent in the state had possessed but have sold their crypto holdings.

The poll discovered that the market most likely to be spent in cryptocurrencies are men between the ages of 18 and 34 of that 14% now have some form of digital advantage.

Overall the study found that Canadians are usually careful in their investment habits in regards to the crypto world. For example, less than 9 percent or just about 50,000 individuals have spent over CD$9,999 within their electronic portfolio. Even though 90 percent invested less than $10,000 and 50 percent less than $1,000.

Although ICOs have experienced a record-breaking year in most respects Canadians, based on the study, have bought in. Just 1.5 percent, or 170,000 individuals have participate in any first coin offerings. This low-interest level could possibly be explained by an overall low level of understanding regarding cryptocurrencies. The majority of the participants were not able to describe the manner in that cryptocurrency or even the blockchain technologies that powers them functions.

Perhaps most interesting from the poll was that the wide range of methods that the respondents had acquired their crypto holdings. 18% obtained their holdings totally free through air drops and another 18% obtained everywhere in exchange for products or services.

Because the majority of the participants stated they had used money savings to obtain their cryptocurrencies, a little group used or borrowed credit cards of whom two-thirds have paid off that debt. The research final decision reads:

“The results of this survey indicate that the vast majority of Ontarians are approaching cryptoassets with caution. Only a small percentage own cryptoassets, and those who do own them tend not to spend substantial sums of money acquiring them,” concluded the survey.”
