According to a new poll from bitFlyer, Italy is the European country with the most interest in cryptocurrency.
A big push towards the future
As Bitcoinist reports, this was a Google survey that took in the opinions of ten countries and 10,000 respondents. The ten countries are Norway, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Denmark, Germany, Belgium, the UK, and France.
Out of those surveyed, 63% of them are of the opinion that cryptocurrencies will still be around come 2029. Norway was of the highest opinion, coming in at 73% positive. Italy was close behind at 68%, with the following countries being very close. France was the lowest at 55%.
Interestingly, this positivity doesn’t extend to Bitcoin (BTC), however. Here, the survey reports that 49% of Europe believe the first asset will last more than 10 more years. Again, the following numbers are fairly close, with France bottoming out at 40%.
bitFlyer’s COO, Andy Bryan, made a comment on these changes:
“The fact that Bitcoin is not generating as much support as other cryptocurrencies is in part a symptom of the market’s volatility but is also a direct impact of the constant media attention that is associated to its volatility.”
Bullish and bearish
While the positivity towards cryptocurrencies as a whole is great, it’s no question that the support behind Bitcoin is dwindling. This is fairly common with technology, in fact. Most of the time, the introductory piece of tech is overwritten by something that comes along and does things better. That’s simply the way this stuff works, and it wouldn’t be surprising if that happens to Bitcoin as well.
That said, the first digital asset holds strong as the number one coin in terms of market cap. Bitcoin still trades well on cryptocurrency trading sites, and it’s still the number one asset people think about when they think about how to buy cryptocurrency.
