A survey conducted by pollster Disruptiva found that 54% of Salvadorans did not approve of the government’s plan for Bitcoin adoption.
El Salvador’s new Bitcoin legislation may be less popular than anticipated.
A survey conducted by Disruptiva, a pollster affiliated with Francisco Gavidia University, found that 54% of Salvadorans viewed Bitcoin adoption as “not at all correct” while another 24% described it as “only a little correct,” Reuters reported Thursday.
The survey, conducted between Jul. 1-4, was answered by 1,233 people in the country.
Reflecting on the results, Oscar Picardo, head of Disruptiva’s institute of science technology and innovation, said that the adoption of Bitcoin as legal tender was “a risky bet on digital transformation.”
