Coinbase has released survey findings regarding American cryptocurrency ownership, indicating a noticeable shift in mindset among participants. The data suggests a transition from a mere speculative approach of “gotta be in it to win it” to a broader and more optimistic perspective on adoption.
The report highlights that a majority of American cryptocurrency holders express discontent with the existing financial system.
Americans Embrace Crypto Adoption Over Speculation
According to a recent report, almost three quarters of Americans, and the majority of crypto holders within the nation are not satisfied with the current fees that traditional banks charge for transactions.
“71% of Americans – and 9 in 10 Americans crypto owners – want lower fees as part of a new, updated financial system.”
However, most cryptocurrency holders believe that crypto could serve as an alternative to the high transaction fees and sluggish processing times offered by traditional banks.
Meanwhile, on January 29, crypto exchange Binance conducted interviews with participants from four European countries: France, Italy, Spain, and Sweden. According to the results, most remain positive about the crypto industry.
“A recent Binance survey reveals that a whopping 73% of European residents are optimistic about the future of cryptocurrencies!”
However, the global count of crypto holders is rapidly increasing, confirming analysts’ and survey findings’ assertions of a shifting mindset.
On January 22, BeInCrypto reported that the global number of crypto holders soared by 34% in 2023. Furthermore, it reached a staggering 580 million by December, up from 432 million in January.
