    Piplsay Survey Shows Americans Prefer NFTs to Brits

    Not long ago, most people were clueless when you asked them about non-fakeable token (NFT) assets. However, since this year, cryptocurrency trends like defi and NFTs have exploded and consumers are becoming more aware of this growing market. Some recent surveys with 1,000 or as many as 10K participants explain what they think about the growing NFT space and whether they think NFTs are a good investment.

    In December 2020, a survey suggesting that the NFT market has a lot of room to grow turned out this way. A few months later, when the NFT hype was in full swing, another survey published in July showed that three out of four sports fans were skeptical about the long-term nature of NFT investments.Piplsay’s survey was much larger than these previous surveys, as the team’s research successfully surveyed more than 40,000 people from the U.S. and U.K.

    While the data shows that 48% of Americans surveyed think NFT is a “good and safe investment”, only 22% of UK residents feel the same way. 18% of Americans have invested in NFT, while only 5% of Brits have done the same. The survey was conducted just recently, from September 3-5, 2021, and all were over the age of 18. The survey further states.
