A Surprising Number of Americans Still Have Not Heard of Crypto or Bitcoin, Poll Shows

Despite growing mainstream adoption, many Americans still have no idea what cryptocurrencies are, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin, according to a recent Harris Poll survey.

Harris Poll surveyed nearly 2,000 Americans in mid-February. The survey revealed a surprising result: over one in 10 adults in the U.S. still have not heard of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin.

Only 16% of respondents said that they were “very familiar” with crypto like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Dogecoin. Around half of surveyed respondents said they had come across the names before.
