More Americans have heard of Dogecoin than Ethereum: Survey


In just over five years since it launched, Ethereum introduced the world to smart contracts, decentralized finance, yield farming and non-fungible tokens, and has long stood just behind Bitcoin as the second-largest blockchain project by market capitalization.Dogecoin (DOGE) is a meme cryptocurrency which has provided no innovation, has no real raison d’etre, and is only popular because it became the plaything of a famous multi-billionaire during the past 12 months.So naturally, as one might expect, the average citizen is already more familiar with Dogecoin than they are with Ethereum. That’s according to the results of a survey conducted by Harris Poll, in conjunction with CouponCabin, which asked over 2,000 adults in the United States to give their thoughts on cryptocurrencies.According to the survey’s findings, 29% of respondents said they were familiar with Dogecoin, compared to just 21% who were familiar with Ethereum.Of the total 2,063 respondents, 89% said they had already at least heard of cryptocurrency. Bitcoin was already known to a majority (71%) of respondents, with Dogecoin being the second most well-known coin.Other digital assets that Americans claimed familiarity with included the stablecoin launched by Coinbase and Circle, USD Coin (USDC), of which 21% of respondents said they had knowledge. Some 18% of respondents said they were familiar with Litecoin (LTC), and 10% said Stellar (XLM) was known to them.When asked whether they believed cryptocurrencies would become the future of money, 31% responded positively, and 30% said they thought of crypto as “innovative.” At the same time, 23% of respondents said they regarded cryptocurrency as a get-quick-rich scheme, while 19% characterized the technology as shady or nefarious. Almost half (44%) of respondents said they’d be open to receiving cryptocurrency as part of an online cashback rewards program.
