Over half of internet users (55%) claimed to know about cryptocurrency, however only one-third of that group was able to explain the concept in their own words.

Moreover, 11% of the group said that they would be willing to invest while another 11% claimed to be undecided about crypto-markets. A large 77% of the group said that they could not imagine putting funds into the cryptocurrency market.
