In a recent survey conducted by Binance, the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, it was revealed that almost half of its users rely on digital assets to generate extra income. This finding underscores the growing significance of cryptocurrencies in today’s financial landscape.
The survey, which included a diverse group of participants from various regions, aimed to understand the role of digital assets in users’ financial strategies. The results were eye-opening: nearly 50% of respondents indicated that they use cryptocurrencies as a means to supplement their income.
