Study: 89 percent of users of Visa and MasterCard know about cryptocurrency

In February, payment systems Visa and Mastercard raised fees for buying cryptocurrency with a credit card from 4 percent to 9 percent.

And for good reason — according to a study Worldcore, 89% of users of Visa and Mastercard are well aware of digital money and a further 53% bought coins over the last 12 months.

Worldcore, a global provider of payment services, interviewed 300 thousand customers Visa, Mastercard and Unionpay. 36% of the respondents are citizens of Japan, 25% USA, 18% South Korea, 8% EU, 3% from Latin American countries, 2% Canada, 1% — Russia and CIS.

The aim of the study was to find out the attitude of people to purchase coins with credit cards. 21 percent of those polled bought cash with a credit card, 36 per cent used debit cards, 43 percent used other payment methods, the study said.

The main reason of refusal to purchase coins with credit cards, the respondents cited risks associated with the volatility of the coins and big commissions. As noted by the head of the Worldcore, banks around the world listen to the opinion of regulators and prohibit transactions with digital money. Because of this, often suffer from customers interested in such transactions.

The survey was conducted among people of different ages and occupations, but they represent a very narrow active audience. The study was conducted among people who were originally trained in the field of financial services.
