4 – The Economist Intelligence Unit | Crypto.com Reveals that COVID-19 Increased Digital Currency Adoption
Last year, Bitcoin crashed below $4,000 due to the coronavirus pandemic threat, and its market cap was plunged below $100 billion. However, this year, demand and acceptance for crypto assets grew rapidly with a 1,000% price surge in BTC. To evaluate these factors, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), in collaboration with Crypto.com, released a Digimentality 2021—Digital currency from fear to inflection report. In the 2020 report, roughly 72% of respondents stated a shift towards a cashless society. In the 2021 report, this figure increased to over 81%. The study also shows that 55% of respondents are at least aware of cryptocurrencies. Hence, these figures indicate that cashless payments and digital currencies are gaining acceptance, and COVID-19 acted as a catalyst to stimulate this move away from cash.
