An article on NewsBTC.com reported a poll by CapGemini that gauged the interest of high net worth individuals and their interest in cryptocurrency.
No surprise there was greater interest from millionaire’s who were 40 and under as compared to those 60 and over. 13% of those over 60 expressed an interest.
From the article:
The survey, which was based on responses from more than 2,600 HNWIs across 19 major wealth markets in North America, Latin America, Europe and Asia-Pacific, found that millionaires have grown their interest in cryptocurrencies but remain cautious regarding the asset that peaked in market capitalization in early January 2018.
The news was not all rosy as Bithumb the largest cryptocurrency exchange in Korea, has now been hacked three times in 12 months.
They posted the following:
[Notice for the suspension of all deposit and withdrawal service]
We checked that some of cryptocurrencies valued about $30,000,000 was stolen. Those stolen cryptocurrencies will be covered from Bithumb and all of assets are being transferring to cold wallet.

Of course when there is all this money at stake, hackers are going to keep going after exchanges like the Energizer bunny.
