Bank of Canada Conducts 3 Questions of Financial Literacy on Bitcoiners
The Bank of Canada conducted a study of four years of annual surveys from 2016 to 2020 with the sample sizes ranging anywhere from 1,987 to 3,893 respondents. The study was titled “Bitcoin Awareness, Ownership and Use: 2016-20”. The conclusion from the study was that: “Bitcoin owners displayed greater knowledge about the Bitcoin network than nonowners, yet they scored lower on questions testing financial literacy.” The financial literacy testing was based on three multiple-choice questions that focused on interest rates, inflation, and stock/mutual fund comprehension.
The three Bitcoin questions focused on supply, the digital ledger, and whether the network is backed by the government or not. On Bitcoiners, the survey data found “In particular, Canadians who were young, male, employed, had a university degree, high household income, and relatively low financial literacy were more likely to own Bitcoin.” On non-Bitcoiners, the data found that those that scored high on financial literacy were “more likely to be aware of Bitcoin but less likely to own it.” Also, “We find that between 2018 and 2020, the level of Bitcoin awareness and ownership among Canadians remained stable: nearly 90% of the population were aware of Bitcoin, while only 5% owned it.”
