 Low Cryptocurrency Literacy Rates, According To A Survey

According to the results of the first Crypto Literacy Survey, a consumer education initiative from a coalition of major players in the digital currency industry, although cryptocurrency continues to spread throughout the world economy, approximately 96% of Americans were unable to pass a quiz about the fundamentals of cryptocurrency.
The 17-question quiz was designed to test knowledge of cryptocurrencies, such as bitcoin and De-Fi, as well as blockchain technologies, mining techniques, wallet types, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs). It also sought to gauge general attitudes toward digital currencies.
Coinme, CoinDesk, and the Digital Currency Group are part of the alliance that founded, which also designed the quiz. The coalition website, which debuted in November in commemoration of the inaugural Crypto Literacy Month, has the full findings of the poll conducted in 2021.

1,000 internet users in the US, Mexico, and Brazil who were aware of cryptocurrencies like bitcoin were sent the survey and quiz, with a balance between age, gender, and educational attainment (plus race and ethnicity in the US). Ninety-nine percent of participants from Brazil and Mexico failed the test, which is comparable to the low pass rate of 4% in the United States.

In contrast to 12% of Americans, 30% of Brazilians and 28% of Mexicans, according to the survey, say they plan to buy or sell cryptocurrencies in the upcoming six months.
