Join the party: Finder’s giving away $200K worth of Bitcoin
Owning cryptocurrency could be the key to happiness, according to new research by Finder.
A Finder survey of more than 6,000 Australians has found those who own cryptocurrency report being happier than those who don't.
According to the research, 4 in 5 (81%) cryptocurrency owners say they are happy, compared to 75% of non-investors.
To celebrate the launch of fee-free crypto trading in the Finder app, Finder has today announced the launch of its Bitcoin Drop Party.
The Bitcoin Drop Party starts on Monday 21 February and will run until 5pm AEDT on Monday 7 March, and there's $200,000 in Bitcoin up for grabs.
Kate Browne, personal finance expert at Finder, said the party is a fun and easy way for Aussies to dip their toe into the world of crypto.
"Whether you're completely new to crypto or a seasoned expert, you're guaranteed to get between $5 and $100 if you join Finder's Bitcoin Drop Party.
"If you're lucky, you could win even more. There's $200,000 in Bitcoin up for grabs – but get in quick!
"It's super easy to join the party. Find and claim a valid "ticket" on our website, on Finder's social media channels or out and about – and follow the prompts on your phone."
A Finder survey of more than 6,000 Australians found that 1 in 5 (21%) now own cryptocurrency.
Browne said buying crypto is no longer just for the early adopter.
"Despite Bitcoin's volatile nature, interest in the digital currency is continuing to grow.
"This number is highest among generation Z (34%) and millennials (33%)."
Interestingly, generation Z are just as likely to own a credit card (35%) as they are to own cryptocurrency.
They are even less likely to know their credit score (27%).
|Have a credit card||35%||57%|
|Know their credit score||27%||38%|
|Shop the Boxing Day sales||45%||35%|
|Have a cat||34%||37%|
|Have a dog||53%||49%|
|Failed their driving test||51%||47%|
|Planning an overseas trip||20%||20%|
