Qualified Americans have began their $1,400 stimulus check after U.S. President Joe Biden signed a 1.9 trillion COVID19 relief package into law last week. Mizuho’s survey discovered that $40 billion of COVID-19 relief bill funds transferred to Americans could move to Bitcoin and stocks. As per Mizuho Securities Co. Ltd’s survey data, a prominent number of U.S. citizens, are preparing to spend almost 10% of the newest batch of direct stimulus checks on Bitcoin and stocks. The research concluded that Americans could buy bitcoin and stocks from approximately $40 billion of the $380 billion given.
Mizuho analysts, headed by Dan Dolev, studied 235 people with household income less than $150,000. Approximately 200 of the respondents advocated that they would get payments from the latest round of stimulus. The survey also discovered that investors are more likely to invest their stimulus money into bitcoin than stock. Out of all the respondents who said they plan on investing, 61% confirmed funding Bitcoin. Nevertheless, 39% of the respondents said they would be investing in stocks.

The analyst continued that although the survey data was unexpected, he thinks it is an authentic portrayal of how customers might spend their stimulus money.
