crypto traders stake at least 5K a month
According to a new survey conducted by Malta based Blockchain derivative trading platform CloseCross, Big-spending crypto traders are combining investing in digital assets with full-time jobs and are in the market for the long-term. Its study among crypto traders across six major economies who stake at least $5,000 a month found 71% are working full-time with another 15% working part-time or self-employed.
The research by CloseCross , which is regulated under Malta’s MIFID II rules, in the US, UK, France, Germany, India and Canada found the traders have been in the market for the long-term. Nearly half (45%) have been trading for four years or more and just one in three (34%) started in the past two years.
They are mainly men but are increasingly younger and spend an average $7,570 trading each month. Around two-thirds (64%) of these serious crypto traders are men and 42% are under 35 with 19% under-25. Just 8% of them are over 55 with 50% aged between 35 and 54,
Most traders are trading between $5,000 and $10,000 a month on cryptocurrencies, the study for CloseCross, which enables traders to generate profits through a simplified three clicks process of selecting an asset, predicting price-bracket(s), and committing funds to these predictions, for a variety of asset classes including crypto as well as stocks, forex pairings, indexes, and commodities, found.
However, one in five (20%) say they have traded cryptocurrency with a value of more than $80,000 in the past year. Around 7% say the value of their trades have been more than $100,000.
