Why are people earning more on blockchain?

Why are people earning more on blockchain? Blockchain could slash the cost of transactions and reshape the economy.

How does X-to-earn work? Take play-to-earn as an example. Through the lens of aligned incentives, the concept of play-to-earn games on a blockchain excites venture capitalists. The play-to-earn model on its own is unsustainable. Given the nature and what the business model is like, it creates an unsustainable pyramid scheme-like system where old player are given tokens that is valuable if there is a continuous stream of new players buying afterwhich.

Traditional hedge funds are slowly embracing cryptocurrency investments but are keeping their exposure limited. According to a PwC report, of traditional hedge funds surveyed, 38% are currently investing in digital assets, compared to 21% a year ago.

Benzinga- People Hesitant To Buy Crypto Due to Lack of Knowledge: Study

Benzinga- People Hesitant To Buy Crypto Due to Lack of Knowledge: Study

Additional Comments by Anndy Lian:

Skeptics often argue that bitcoin was created out of thin air. Yet every Bitcoin is mined by solving complex cryptographic hash puzzles to verify blocks of transactions that are updated on the decentralized blockchain ledger. Skeptics can be reduced if you know what you are doing, there is a lack in the education of cryptocurrency in the space right now or should I say lack of proper knowledge sharing. People who are conducting masterclasses on how to use DEXes (Decentralized Exchanges) may not have traded on a DEX before. They do not understand how slippage works and so forth and where to import their contracts. If education is done well, the barrier of entry would be easier.

Many users that I know rely on hear-say information from the grapevine or they solely depend on mainstream papers. It is not good enough. They should look at reading online expert opinion articles and blogs where real users share their experiences. This would help them think wider and allow them to make sound decisions on what to do next.

Be the changemaker, don’t be the problem. Crypto changes minds, empower you to think beyond what you have learnt in textbook.

 

People Hesitant To Buy Crypto Due to Lack of Knowledge: Study

With over 100 million people globally using cryptocurrencies in 2021, the digital dollar has become a widely accepted way of saving and spending.

A new study, however, points out that the majority of those who have not invested in cryptos are either due to a lack of knowledge, massive fluctuations, or a perception that the digital currencies are a scam.

A study conducted by Coupon Follow also found out that Gen Z says further government regulations and crypto law enforcement is most likely to convince them to buy crypto and one in five people who have never bought crypto have downloaded a crypto exchange app at some point.

Coupon Follow surveyed 1,172 respondents over the age of 18 via SurveyMonkey and respondents were limited to those in the United States who had not yet bought or invested in cryptocurrency.

Gen Z, millennials, Gen X, and baby boomers were all included in the survey, with sample sizes ranging from 172 to 333 for each generation.

Hesitation due to lack of understanding

When respondents were asked about their aversion toward purchasing cryptocurrency, 42% said it was because they didn’t understand its value. Meanwhile, 39% were put off by the massive fluctuations in value that have plagued certain cryptocurrencies.

The third most common reason for hesitation was a concern that cryptos as a whole seemed like a scam. This sentiment was most common among baby boomers, 44% of whom selected it as their primary cause for pause.

Surprisingly, 18% of crypto skeptics have downloaded crypto exchange apps onto their phones but never ended up investing in any coins. The biggest reason for this sort of course reversal was a lack of knowledge about how to use the app or the currencies.

Interest Piqued?

Crypto investment interest seems to have taken a hit in 2022, with 61% of respondents saying they’re not at all likely to buy in this year. Only 6% of respondents who didn’t currently own crypto said they would be very or extremely likely to do so in the near future.

Looking forward to learning

The study results point out that interest in learning more about cryptocurrency is not dead. 6 out of 10 people were at least somewhat willing to learn more about cryptocurrency, even if they weren’t ready to spend money on it.

Experts say educating the masses is the need of the hour and relying on hear-say or sole dependence on the media is not good enough.

Anndy Lian, Thought Leader and Chief Digital Advisor to Mongolian Productivity Organization says people should look at reading online expert opinion articles and blogs where real users share their experiences.”

“This would help them think wider and allow them to make sound decisions on what to do next. Be the changemaker, don’t be the problem. Crypto changes minds and empowers you to think beyond what you have learned in the textbook,” Lian says.

Raj Kapoor, chief Advisor at Acryptoverse, a crypto blockchain and advisory firm, says for years crypto has seemed like the fleeting tech trend most people could safely ignore, however, its power – both economic and cultural – has become too big to overlook.

“The elephant is in the room. Can we kick it out? I don’t think so, so let us learn to dance with the elephant now,” he adds.
