Currencies have over the centuries changed handed and denominations while retaining its true colors that is: used purely for transactions or money given in exchange of goods. Keeping same thoughts in mind, cryptocurrencies had come into the picture but still, somewhere they lacked to create interest among people.

With time and continuous efforts from the brains behind this currency type, things have changed as many folks have tried shifting their focus from using traditional ‘set’ currencies to the cryptos.

A Shift Slowly Picking Up Speed

Cryptocurrencies have finally begun to make themselves useful in the way they were intended to. Here we are talking about one of the many incidents wherein the residents of Moscow employ cryptocurrencies to conduct transactions. It might come as a bit of surprise for some folks as till now there has been a wave of uncertainty as to how would Bitcoin rise with passing time.

Remember readers, Bitcoins are one of the cryptocurrencies and yet there are many more cryptos out there. Bitcoin is one of the cryptos that many people use for transactions apart from ethereum, ripple, litecoin etc.

Report on What Cryptocurrency Usage Survey Has to Say

A survey had been recently conducted according to which close to 5% residents of Moscow preferred non-cash methods of payments inclusive of the cryptocurrencies! To be precise, about 1,000 people carried out transactions in such non-cash modes of payment. And to ascertain this survey further, regarding age group of people using these new modes of transactions, the surveyors got to know on questioning that there was no age bracket in particular and instead, all of them belonged to different age groups.

It does make sense here: cryptocurrencies were never meant to be put into service by only one age group but rather it has to be utilized by one and all!

Forms of Payment Used

On the other hand, there are still about 96% of residents who opt for bank cards while 16% of them used e-money. This survey also threw light on other payment services that people used namely: internet banking is utilized by about 32% of residents whereas some of them constituting about 40% of the population had switched to numerous mobile bank applications.
Hence, as you notice, people switch from one to another application (currency) in some time only. Therefore, it was about time for Cryptocurrency to make a mark for itself clearing the air that yes, it was time ripe for it to make a real entry in the real world out there.

Are People Ready to use Cryptocurrencies?

Curiosity arises whenever this question is asked - are people actually ready to use cryptocurrencies? Well, if looked at the above results from a survey conducted on residents of Moscow then we can very well say, about 5% of residents shall definitely give a try to Cryptocurrency as yet another ground-breaking payment method!

Revolution and change have been the most power packed words we adore and fear at the same time. With time, change becomes inevitable; thus, industrialization was a turning point of a whole new era for many of us. But have we ever wondered as to where would this stop? Or is there any way to throw together traditional and new techniques?

Of course, there are many ways to do this but everything boils down to one thing which is: is it worth the trouble?

The Emergence of Bitcoins and Blockchain

Post industrialization, one aspect that caught imagination of folks was this: Blockchain built to establish Bitcoins. Interesting though it may sound but somewhere down the line things got a bit tricky leaving a trail of thoughts.

Here, we speak about the initial idea of building a Blockchain, meant solely for Bitcoins. Time, however, took it to different places and now we find Blockchain being used in departments one could never think of. This leaves us with a question… has Blockchain worked for the best or not?

Money vs Cryptocurrency

Money, in simple definition, is a tool through which goods are exchanged, it is also recognized by the Governments across the globe. On the other hand, Cryptocurrency is based on Blockchain and still has not been recognized by any Country’s Government. Here comes the major difference!

Any reasons?

Reasons are abundant for not providing Cryptocurrency the platform it expected, one of them being Cryptocurrency (it may be Bitcoin or Ethereum or any other crypto) is decentralized to a great extent. This causes a clash thereby giving rise to good vs evil (in some cases). If you look around then you understand that most of the time, wrong doers try to find an escape route to finance their deeds.

Here it is, that most of them opt for Cryptocurrency as they do not leave a trail. Transactions turn easier than expected.

It was never this straightforward before though.

With Governments not identifying cryptos as a legal currency, it was bound to take a step back and hence one might very well observe that there has been quite a downfall of working of cryptocurrencies; some of them clicking whilst others struggling to stay at top of the game. From the very beginning, somewhere in 2017, there was a surge of investment from different corners of society, leading to a boom in cryptos; one, which had not been seen before.

Like a bubble bursts, Blockchain also burst only to reveal its true self wherein people could use it in numerous fashions * (in fields, making their work trouble free).

Never Ending Art Form

Aha! You may say this, Blockchain has led a revolution of its kind turning tables for what ‘money’ stood for. It did make banks in Japan to utilize it for making ‘Money Tap’, a domestic payment app. This got approved only after financial regulations were followed.

And so there might never be a dearth of Blockchain’s use, it is best if we use a wait and watch policy, for now, to decide future of Blockchain with its link to the biggest turnaround of the century ‘the Cryptocurrencies’.
Ethereum (ETH) is one of the most famous cryptocurrencies in the crypto universe.
