Survey Finds One In Ten Americans Plan To Give Crypto This Holiday Season

Many Americans are planning on giving the gift of crypto this year, but many don’t know how, according to a new study by crypto lending firm BlockFi revealed.

“The survey points out a lack of knowledge on how to actually give the gift crypto”, said William Rice, CEO of Certificate Exchange, Inc. “Less than a quarter of respondents actually knew how to send crypto to someone as a gift. That is why we created CryptoBuxx crypto gift certificates. It is an easy way to give the gift of Crypto to someone even if they do not have a crypto wallet.”
Top findings from the “Real Talk: Happy HODLdays” survey include:
  • Crypto could dominate many holiday dinner table conversations: One in three respondents said they are more interested in talking about crypto instead of politics or their love lives with their friends and family this holiday season.
  • Crypto as a gift is taking hold: One in 10 respondents plan to gift crypto for the 2021 holidays.
  • Knowledge on how to give crypto remains low, with less than 25% of respondents stating that they actually know how to give crypto as a present.
  • Bitcoin is the top choice as the crypto of choice for gifting and receiving, with Dogecoin and Ethereum coming in as second and third, respectively.
  • Unexpected holiday windfall of cash of significant monetary value ($10,000 USD)? While the majority (62%) would either use the funds to pay down debt or store it in a traditional cash savings account, nearly one in four (24%) would invest in the markets (public stock or crypto).
  • Looking to the New Year, one in four respondents said they are likely to purchase crypto in 2022, again with Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Ethereum being the most popular.

The survey was conducted by a third-party survey panel between October 19 and October 26, 2021. 1,262 male and female US citizens between the ages of 18 and 65 were surveyed.

How It works

Cryptocurrency or crypto is a digital asset designed to work as a medium of exchange wherein individual coin ownership records are stored in a computerized ledger using strong cryptography to secure transaction records, to control the creation of additional coins, and to verify the transfer of coin ownership. Before CryptoBuxx, the recipient would need to already have a crypto wallet in order to receive crypto coins. Now coins can be given as gift certificates and redeemed later.

When an individual comes to the CrytoBuxx Products page, they can select the crypto coin and denomination, paper or digital type and number of Buxx requested. The system will price the coins at the current market value including transaction costs, and the individual can add them into their shopping cart for purchase.

CryptoBuxx can be purchased with credit cards, PayPal or several popular crypto coins including BTC, BNB, Link, ADA, DOGE, SHIBA, HNT, USDT and USDC.

Before a CryptoBuxx is sold, the corresponding crypto coins have already been purchased and held in a cold wallet offline for added security. Once the Buxx is sold and shipped, the Buxx is activated and awaits redemption. The website walks users though creating their first crypto exchange account if they do not already have one. When the CryptoBuxx is redeemed,  the coins are transferred to the redeemers crypto wallet.
