ING’s research shows that fewer and fewer Europeans believe in bitcoin and are skeptical about cryptocurrencies in general. At the same time, more than 30% of respondents in Turkey are ready to receive a salary in BTC.
With the exception of Turkey, Poland and Romania, most of Europe does not believe that cryptocurrencies will become an integral part of the financial system in the coming years, according to the study.
The results of the study, which covers 12 European countries, as well as the United States and Australia, suggest that people are losing faith in the potential of bitcoin. According to the report, the attitude of Austrian residents to bitcoin has worsened to the greatest extent, and only 13% of respondents said that they have a positive attitude to the spread of cryptocurrencies. In 2018, this answer was given by 20% of respondents, which indicates a significant decrease in confidence in cryptocurrencies.
The study also assessed the average level of awareness about bitcoin in a particular country and found that Austrian citizens have the highest level of knowledge about BTC compared to residents of other countries who participated in the survey.
The survey participants in Turkey expressed the greatest optimism about BTC. According to the researchers, 36% of respondents are ready to receive a salary in bitcoin, and 62% of respondents are confident in the successful development of BTC.
Residents of Romania and Poland expressed a positive attitude to bitcoin. In these countries, 44% and 43% of respondents, respectively, have a positive attitude to the spread of BTC and believe in its active introduction into the financial system in the coming years.
