  • Crypto and libertarianism are often thought to go
    hand-and-hand, but a report by CoinDesk found most crypto
    holders identify as liberal.
  • Different coin communities also have differing
    political-leanings, the report found. 

Crypto and libertarianism are often thought to go hand-and-hand,
but a recent survey by crypto publication CoinDesk has found that
the political makeup of crypto enthusiasts isn’t exactly what you
might expect. 

The survey of 1,200 cryptocurrency investors found that the
plurality of respondents identify as liberal, with 27% of those
surveyed identifying with the political designation. Meanwhile,
24% identified as libertarian. Socialists made up a paltry 9%,
the survey found. Here’s a chart:

The survey, which was part of the firm’s broader “State of
Blockchain Report,” also found that different crypto communities
have very different politics. Bitcoin, for instance, leans more
right than ether-rival EOS. 55% of bitcoin holders identify as
right-leaning, CoinDesk found, whereas only 43% of EOS holders
are right-leaning. Here’s the chart:
