After a year of extensive bullish runs that enticed both large and small investors in the cryptocurrency market, a significant decline has occurred in recent months. Big banks and crypto exchanges have faced scandals and liquidity issues, leading to widespread turbulence. American regulators have sped up their investigations, casting doubt on the future of crypto and exacerbating uncertainty.

According to a study, around 40% of Americans who have heard about cryptocurrency do not trust it. They consider it to be “not at all secure” or “not very secure” for digital currency transactions. In addition, 18% said they are “somewhat confident.”

Despite this, cryptocurrency still outperformed the US government in terms of public trust. However, Americans are still skeptical about their government. In a recent survey, only two out of ten respondents said they trust Washington to do the right thing “most of the time” (19%) or “always” (2%).

Nearly three-quarters of those who invest in crypto said they did so for the first time between one and five years ago. According to a survey, 69% of crypto investors still own some form of cryptocurrency.

Another report by CoinDesk found that over 50 million Americans held cryptocurrency in February, and 67% of respondents felt that the overall global financial system was flawed and in need of “significant changes or complete overhaul.
