Hong Kong, China — (SBWIRE) — 12/21/2021 — Financial technology is gaining huge ground all across the Asia Pacific region. Now, a recent survey reveals just how much consumers are getting behind innovation in this area. The data revealed that 35% of Hong Kong citizens said that they were open to using cryptocurrencies or central digital bank currencies as a way to make payments in the next five years. The result indicates that cryptocurrencies are about to become a much more viable payment option than they have ever been in this part of the world. 12% of those who took part in the survey indicated that cryptocurrencies were likely to become their main method of payment in the coming years. Central bank digital currencies are currently the preferred option for those who are going to switch to this type of payment even though this has yet to be formally developed. There are many reasons why people are keen to switch to cryptocurrencies, with the desire to avoid creating a taxable event on sale being among the top.
