“Crypto investors continue to see digital assets as a key instrument in retirement portfolio diversification, as well as a hedge against inflation and mounting concerns about social security.”
Despite the turmoil that cryptocurrencies have experienced this year, investors remain highly optimistic about digital assets.
With an increasing number of investors planning to up their investment in cryptocurrencies, it is likely that the crypto market will continue to grow and mature.
Over the past few years, we have seen a significant increase in crypto adoption. However, one of the major obstacles to mainstream crypto adoption has been the lack of amenable regulation across various jurisdictions.
However, this is starting to change slowly, as governments around the world are beginning to recognize the importance of crypto regulation.
Despite the challenges and regulatory uncertainties in the cryptospace, adoption is expected to continue to grow, especially as more entities become aware of the potential benefits of these digital assets and governments around the world continue to implement clear and comprehensive regulations.
