Most of the respondents to the survey conducted on the Twitter Bank of England profile admitted that they would like to receive as a gift … cryptocurrency!
In the Bank of England survey, respondents were asked to choose the preferred method of receiving money as part of a Christmas gift. You could choose: cash, bank transfer, gift voucher and digital currency. At the time of writing this text, over 9,000 people took part in the study, while 70% of them chose the “e-currency” option.
Cash came in second with a result of 2%. If you believe the survey, bank transfers and gift vouchers are currently the least attractive forms of receiving gifts in the form of money.
Do you want BTC or gold?
Last month a similar survey was conducted by a former US Congressman, Ron Paul, who asked Twitter users what form they would like to receive $ 10,000. In the question-experiment Paula had one catch. The assumption was that a hypothetical gift would have to remain in the form in which it was received for ten years. The results showed that as many as 50 percent of respondents would like to receive bitcoins (BTC). Gold chose 37 percent.
In November, Mati Greenspan, senior analyst at the British eToro transaction platform, conducted his own Twitter survey with the question “What is your favorite cryptocurrency?”. The results showed that 46 percent of the 28 189 respondents chose Ripple (XRP), while Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) ranked second and third respectively, with results of 31 and 9 percent, respectively.
