The Dutch bank ING conducted an online survey and found out that Austrians are more skeptical about bitcoin than residents of other countries.

The survey involved residents of 15 states. The authors of the study note that the skepticism towards bitcoin has intensified not only in Austria, but also in other countries.

Austrians hold conservative views on investing issues and are especially cautious about cryptocurrencies. Only 13% look at the new class of digital assets on the positive side.

Compared with the previous year, the attitude to cryptocurrencies in the country has deteriorated somewhat. In 2018, 20% of Austrians saw the future of the payment industry in this instrument, but now this figure is 17%.

A similar decrease is observed in the issue of investments – if earlier 17% of Austrians considered cryptocurrencies as a tool for investing, now this indicator has decreased to 14%. At the same time, only 5% of respondents said they were ready to receive a salary in cryptocurrency.
