The flagship cryptocurrency was included in the top three priority assets for hedging financial risks in the event of default.
The most popular assets
The first place was taken by gold. 51.7% of large and 45.7% of retail investors are ready to invest in it.
Second place for US government bonds with 14% and 15%, respectively. A significant part of those surveyed believe that bonds maturing in 2033-2035 will increase even in the event of default. Practice shows that the owners of these securities still receive dividends, albeit with a delay.
The popularity of bitcoin
Researchers believe that bitcoin has become more popular in the eyes of investors because, unlike fiat money, VTS does not have a central bank as an issuer, and the decentralized structure allows you to create your own financial system.
