Security.org asked nearly 1,300 U.S. adults about their familiarity, ownership, and confidence in cryptocurrencies. Nearly 15 million Americans plan to purchase crypto for the first time in the next year. 31 percent of those familiar with crypto own some themselves, but 12 percent said they plan to buy some in next 12 months. Most common reason that crypto-owners lost access was due to lost or forgotten passwords, which caused nearly half of the lost access incidents. A total of nearly 80 percent reported that they were somewhat to very confident in the safety of their cryptocurrency.
