Global Crypto Owners Predicted to Surpass 1 Billion This Year
According to a report by Crypto.com, the number of crypto owners will reach one billion by year’s end. National governments cannot ignore the growing trend of crypto adoption by the general public. We may in many cases see a more friendly approach toward the crypto industry.
There Will Be More Than 1 Billion Crypto Owners Worldwide This Year, Report Shows
Crypto.com released its “Crypto Market Sizing” report last week showing an analysis of cryptocurrency adoption worldwide.
The global crypto population increased by 178% in 2021, rising from 106 million in January to 295 million in December, the analysis shows, elaborating:
The number of crypto users is expected to break one billion by the end of 2022.
The report explains that crypto adoption in the first half of 2021 was “remarkable,” adding that the main driver of growth was bitcoin.
Furthermore, “Nations can no longer afford to ignore the growing push to crypto by the public. We may in many cases expect a friendlier stance towards the crypto industry,” the report states.
“We expect developed nations to devise clear legal and taxation frameworks for crypto assets,” Crypto.com noted, adding:
More nations facing a highly inflationary economy and depreciating currency may adopt cryptocurrency as legal tender, following the example of El Salvador.
El Salvador adopted bitcoin as legal tender alongside the U.S. dollar in September last year. Since then, the country has bought 1,801 BTC for its treasury. However, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) is concerned and has urged El Salvador to drop BTC as a national currency.
Despite the IMF’s bitcoin stance, several people have predicted that more countries will make the cryptocurrency legal tender this year, including Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele. Financial giant Fidelity recently said it expects other sovereign nation states to acquire bitcoin this year “as a form of insurance.”
