Previously, analysts of ING Group came to the conclusion that it is worth waiting for a serious stir in relation to the crypto-currency industry.
The survey was conducted among 15,000 citizens of the United States, Australia and 13 European countries. It turned out that, despite a small number of European investors, there are reasons to believe that their number will grow.
"66% of Europeans surveyed heard about crypto-currencies. Less than one in ten people (9%) invested in crypto-currencies. In addition, 16% are planning to purchase digital assets in the future, which suggests an increase in interest by more than two times. Considering that one third of Europeans surveyed (34%) did not hear about crypto-currencies, the potential increase may even exceed expectations, "experts are sure.
