According to a poll commissioned for Grayscale by Harris Poll, a majority of American adults, almost 79%, agreed that crypto space should be subject to more regulation by the government. The survey was conducted for taking into consideration the necessity of setting up new rules for cryptocurrencies. Interestingly, almost 76% of the voters advocated for “clear rules” for cryptocurrency trading.
While giving out a summary of the survey, the Harris Poll wrote that people wanted crypto to be accessible to everyone everywhere: There is strong support for U.S. crypto regulation: Americans want clearly established rules and regulations. They indicate the regulation should be consumer focused to ensure crypto is accessible to everyone
It was evident from the survey that the poll respondents were having comparatively lesser trust in cryptocurrencies than the traditional investment tools and fiat systems. While 84% supported traditional investment tools like stocks and bonds by claiming that they trust them, 51% conveyed that they trust cryptocurrencies. Furthermore, almost half of the people admitted that they have trust in politicians and the government. To add, more than half of the voters, almost 53%, voted to share their belief that crypto is the “future of finance”.
