A recent survey by comparison site Finder showed that Australia is more optimistic about cryptocurrencies than other countries. The Finder research aims to measure the growth of crypto globally with a regular survey of more than 41,600 people in 22 countries.
According to the survey, Australia was the country with the third highest cryptocurrency with 17.8%. Indonesia followed Australia with 16.7% and Hong Kong with 15.8%.
The Finder survey results showed that the global average in cryptocurrency ownership is 11.4% and Australia is one step ahead when it comes to the love of cryptocurrencies.
Finder CEO Fred Schebesta continued by commenting on the survey results, “Australia’s love of gambling”:
“They are also very knowledgeable in terms of finance. Crypto-related laws make trading very easy.”

According to other results from the survey, more than half (65.2%) of those who invest in cryptocurrencies own Bitcoin, while 42.1% stated that they own Ethereum and 26.4% stated that they own Cardano.
Other popular cryptocurrencies in Australia were Dogecoin with 23% and BNB with 14.6%.
According to the results, Australian men revealed that they are more interested in crypto than women. About 21.8% of men and 14.1% of women in Australia said they own cryptocurrencies.
The Finder CEO attributed his love for crypto in Australia to the fact that banking in the country is really seamless and it’s very easy to deposit and withdraw money, adding:
“Other countries have much more laws and challenges in getting in and out of the crypto market.”
