A survey conducted by the Chinese cryptocurrency company BabelFinance showed that local investors are waiting for the growth of Bitcoin, and according to 30% of respondents, the Bitcoin exchange rate for the year will exceed $ 30,000.

It is reported that 51.8% of respondents are between the ages of 26 and 35, 21.9% are between 19 and 25 years old, and 22.8% are older than 36 and under 45 years old. About 70% of respondents said that their monthly income exceeds $ 1,600. At the same time, the average income of white-collar workers in the country is only $ 1,000.
The main reason for investing in cryptocurrencies (84.3% of respondents) is called confidence in the growth of Bitcoin in the future and long-term investments in the first cryptocurrency. 25.3% were attracted by high income in the short term. The same percentage considers Bitcoin to be a "safe haven", and 19.3% of respondents said they keep cryptocurrency for the collection.
There was a question about how much of the portfolio investors hold in cryptocurrencies. It turns out that 31.3% of respondents hold in Bitcoin and other coins more than half of their savings. 12% of respondents store from 41% to 50% of the portfolio in Bitcoin, and 10.8% - from 31 to 40, respectively. Real estate also plays a large role in the investment portfolios of young Chinese.
