A survey conducted by Digital wallet provider, Skrill, shows that 38% of consumers across seven countries have invested in cryptocurrency.
Consumers’ Interest in cryptocurrency has grown so much in recent times, it continues to grow with every passing day, hour, minutes, seconds, and if you like, milliseconds.
“Cryptocurrency adoption has rapidly increased to heights nobody could have imagined even two years ago,” Rossen Yordanov, senior vice president, Skrill and NETELLER, at Paysafe explained.
“We’re seeing that crypto is no longer a niche phenomenon, and our research provides further evidence of that, but there’s a significant opportunity to grow awareness about its potential for payments and transfers.”
Thanks to the publicity around crypto-related topics, people are getting a lot more information about it thrown at their faces.
A fair percentage of them are compelled to willingly seek more knowledge about crypto.
It appears that bad publicity somehow helps to spread the cryptocurrency gospel too.
Skrill carried out the survey between March and April this year among 8,111 consumers in Italy, UK, US, Canada, Austria, Bulgaria, and Germany.
Results show that 84% of people who participated have heard about one cryptocurrency at least.
64% are farmiliar with Bitcoin, which is quite expected.
Others include Bitcoin Cash (31%), Ethereum (22%), and Litecoin (19%).
