Popular Dogecoin Surveys Refuted By RBA
According to Tony Richards, the Head of payments policy at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), the assumption that 5% of the local population are Dogecoin owners is exaggerated. He also does not think that cryptocurrencies present a threat to the Australian dollar or the country’s financial network.
The results of a recent survey revealed that one in every six Aussies is a cryptocurrency holder. Bitcoin (BTC) is the most popular digital asset as 9% of the locals have invested in it, while Ether (ETH) is very close, with 8%. Interestingly, Dogecoin (DOGE) held the third position as 5% admitted they had exposure to it.
However, Richards finds the data misleading. In a press conference, he said that the survey was conducted online and missed important factors like demographic segments of the population – most notably older people who predominantly do not invest in cryptocurrencies.
People from the rural areas and those without regular access to the Internet could not attend the research, too, the exec added. On top of it, Richards does not think Bitcoin and the altcoins are that popular among the general population in Australia:
“I can’t see shops posting their prices in cryptocurrencies or companies doing their annual reports in cryptocurrencies or lots of people wanting to get paid in cryptocurrencies.”
DOGE Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
