According to analytics from major search engines, among them the giant Google, the Bitcoin community consists mainly of young adults.

Almost half of all Bitcoiners (close to 50%) are individuals between the ages of 25 and 34.

Around 25% of Bitcoiners are between the ages of 35 and 44.

Around 15% are those Bitcoiners who are under 24, that is between 24 and the legal age of 18.

Those between the ages of 45 and 54 equate to roughly 10% of all Bitcoin owners, followed by everyone else.

The Millennials, otherwise known as Generation Y, are considered to be those individuals who were born between 1980 and 1995, in other words, who are now between the ages of 23 and 38.

Since they are present, to varying degrees of success, in all three of the leading Bitcoin age groups, we can therefore conclude that the Millennials make up approximately 60% of all Bitcoiners. They figuratively (and quite literally) take the crypto cake!
