Bitget Study Uncovers Financial Goals and Investment Trends of Cryptocurrency Users
Victoria, Seychelles, Oct 4 , 2023 — Bitget, top platform for crypto derivatives and copy trading, has unveiled a comprehensive study, shedding light on the financial objectives and ambitions of cryptocurrency investors and how investment behaviors vary across different nations. The research encompassed over 1,500 survey responses from participants hailing from 20 diverse countries, including those in Europe, China, Japan, South Korea, Turkey, as well as English-speaking nations.
Bitget conducted this extensive study from May 2023 to August 2023. As part of the research, an examination of financial goals and investment behaviors across the selected countries was correlated with various factors, including gender distribution and investment amounts.
Across most markets, the top two financial goals for participants are the enhancement of their own living standards and the improvement of their entire family's quality of life. Notably, South Korea, Canada, and Turkey exhibited the highest demand for improving one's personal living standards, with percentages of 46%, 44%, and 41%, respectively. In contrast, some cryptocurrency users in Malaysia and Taiwan view crypto investments more as a critical source of family income, with 36% of respondents in these markets prioritizing the enhancement of their family's quality of life over other financial goals.
In some European countries and US, users invest in cryptocurrencies with the dual aim of improving their own living standards and that of their families. For instance, in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom, the percentages for these two goals are remarkably close. However, in some Asian countries, a different trend emerges, with users displaying a stronger inclination towards improving their personal living standards. The most significant contrast is observed in South Korea, where 46% of respondents aim to enhance their own living standards through crypto investments, while only 16% do so for their families, while Japan users share similar ideas.
A deeper dive into gender-related aspects reveals that, in most countries, female investors exhibit a greater interest in crypto investments aimed at improving the financial situation of their entire family, compared to male investors. South Korea stands as an exception, with 17% of male investors expressing a desire to improve their family's financial situation through crypto investments, while only 12% of female investors share the same sentiment.
Female investors in several markets, particularly in South Korea and Japan, demonstrate a greater inclination to enhance their personal financial situations than their male counterparts. Notably, 49% of female users in South Korea and 41% in Japan invest with this goal in mind, whereas the percentages drop to 45% and 30% for males.
In Turkey and the US, female investors are more inclined to use crypto investments to fund their children's education expenses and tuition fees, with 27% of respondents selecting this goal. In contrast, the percentages for South Korea and Japan in this regard are notably lower, standing at 5% and 4%, respectively.
Regarding the amounts invested, the study reveals intriguing insights. In South Korea, Japan, Turkey, Europe, and English-speaking countries, a significant portion of investors, including 51% in Europe, 49% in Turkey, and 46% in South Korea, allocated investments ranging from $1,000 to $10,000.
Conversely, China emerged as the country with the highest investment amounts, with 18% of investors allocating sums between $50,000 and $100,000, and an additional 19% investing between $100,000 and $500,000 in cryptocurrency assets. These varying investment amounts reflect the diverse financial landscapes and risk appetites of cryptocurrency investors across different regions.
This comprehensive study by Bitget provides valuable insights into the financial goals and investment behaviors of cryptocurrency users across diverse global markets. While motives and behaviors vary by region, some common threads emerge, reflecting different crypto adoption stages.
Continued research across user segments and regions will provide deeper insights as the crypto space evolves. Follow-up surveys can track changing behaviors over time. While crypto is still maturing as an asset class, Bitget believes it has transformative potential to serve diverse financial needs globally.
