The crypto revolution is on

Crypto-skeptics like Peter Schiff may mock the enthusiasts, but that does not affect their attachment to their favorite assets: cryptos. Last September, when the number of crypto investors approached the 320 million mark, there were 1 million of them who had at least 1 BTC in their wallet. However, many of them were deficit due to the bear market.

A study carried out by Crypto.com estimated that the number of cryptocurrency holders amounted to 402 million as of 1er December 2022. This represents an adoption growth rate of approximately 2.9% per month. At this pace, the number of investors in bitcoin and other cryptos will exceed 600 million next year. They could even reach 800 million during this period.
