The research was conducted with more than 400 clients among platforms and products like Eikon, REDI and FX Platforms. 70% stated that they would like to do so in the 3-6 months and 22% of the surveyed would start in the next 6-12 months. This indicates that cryptocurrency trading is becoming a trend even among traditional companies.
Cryptocurrencies To Grow In The Future
This survey indicates that the market is considerably more open to cryptos now than it ever was in the past. The co-head of Thomson Reuters, Neill Penney, has explained that cryptocurrencies will stop to be a niche market in the future as more and more traditional companies start to use them.
If the trend does start to take traction, there is a big chance to see even more companies starting to use the blockchain technology and create their own cryptocurrencies.
