In February 2022, NGRAVE surveyed over 2000 unique respondents from 87 countries. The purpose of NGRAVE is to help respondents assess their portfolio's current level of security and provide them with actionable steps to improve their overall level of security. Henceforth, we also get an in-depth overview of the security of today's retail crypto investors.

Over 2000 respondents: who are they?

Our respondents mostly come from Europe and North America. More than 30% are from Belgium and France.

Almost half of the respondents hold less than $20k in their portfolio. One out of five investors holds more than $100k. The 80/20 rule is also a reality in the crypto retail market. 20% of investors hold over 80% of the wealth.

"The behaviour of crypto investors remains stable compared to 2021. Given the nature of the survey, an overrepresentation of nontrader profiles was expected and confirmed."
Ruben Merre, NGRAVE CEO & Co-founder.
