Cryptocurrencies will become even more popular in the future

Interest in cryptocurrency and blockchain will double in the near future. Such conclusions include a study of the perception of technology by residents of Europe, Australia and the United States, conducted by Ipsos, commissioned by the Dutch ING Bank B. V. The study was conducted several times and took into account gender, age and population in each country. The last study was held from March 26 to April 6, 2018 and covered 15 countries, each of which was interviewed about a thousand respondents.

According to the results of the study, 66% of Europeans have heard of cryptocurrencies, and 35% agree that the crypto industry is “the future of online”. Another 35% suggested that the cost of cryptocurrency will grow during the year.

The share of awareness of the crypto industry is equal to or greater than 50% in each country that participated in the survey. The highest rates for Austria (79%) and Poland (77%). In the US, 57% of respondents have heard of cryptocurrencies.

Less than 1/10 of the surveyed residents of Europe, the US and Australia have ever owned digital assets. The poll showed that residents of Europe who use mobile banking are much more likely to own cryptocurrencies (12%) than those who do not use it (4%).

Only 9% of respondents have crypto assets and 25% said they intend to purchase them in the future. The highest percentage (18%) of possession of digital assets is observed in Turkey, the lowest (4%) in Luxembourg.

The study showed that the majority of respondents consider cryptocurrency to be a more risky form of investment than real estate, government bonds or the stock market.

Among the preferred sources of information about investing in bitcoin in 11 of the 15 countries of the world, people have chosen specialized sites. Respondents from Spain, France and Luxembourg chose to rely on financial or banking consultants, while Italians said they considered both sources equally important.
