UPDATE (16th March, 15:20 GMT)This survey is now also available in Chinese and also in Spanish and in Japanese.

It’s a common observation: the bitcoin community largely consists of young, white males. But to what degree is this actually true? Just what percentage of those interested in digital currency matches this description?

To find out, CoinDesk has launched a new survey to determine who exactly makes up the bitcoin community and the demographics with a general interest in digital currency.

The survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete, but will lead to a greater understanding of the community.

You can complete the survey below, or in a new tab.

Please also take the time to share this survey. The higher the number of responses we get, the greater the weight of the results.
