SALT Survey Finds Regulatory Framework Both a Challenge and an Opportunity for Crypto Industry

SALT, a global thought leadership forum focused on innovation and investing, announced the results of its survey featuring crypto market sentiments from over 225 investors and builders in the blockchain, digital assets and web3 space. The survey sought to capture attendees’ views around key themes of the inaugural Crypto Bahamas, which was held in partnership with FTX.

The survey explored attendees’ views on key themes of the conference agenda. Attendees, which included both decentralized finance (DeFi) and traditional finance (TradFi) leaders, were bullish on crypto.

  • The majority (70%) of respondents shared that they plan to increase their exposure to crypto at least 25% through the end of the year.
  • Nearly 7 in 10 respondents (69%) believe that Bitcoin will go above $50,000 by the end of 2022.
  • As for the next jump in crypto adoption, respondents suggest games (32%), followed by NFTs (28%) and DeFi (26%) are areas to watch.

“Crypto Bahamas created momentum around the important discussion of the institutional adoption of crypto, but we’ve really just scratched the surface in educating and advancing the conversation and these investments,” commented Anthony Scaramucci, Founder of SALT and SkyBridge Capital. “Regulation is the single most influential aspect around the advancement and adoption of crypto. Now, it’s up to regulators to act.”
