It is possible to say with confidence that blockchain technology, cryptocurrencies, and decentralized finance have firmly been embedded in the everyday lives of average users. A growing number of ordinary people around the world are starting to resort to these instruments along with traditional banking services for storing funds, lending or borrowing money, trading on centralized and decentralized exchanges, as well as for their daily needs. In 2022, the number of people owning crypto wallets will reach a value of approximately 300 million.
As the adoption of cryptocurrencies and related technologies among users increases, many companies are starting to offer their products and services with the possibility of cryptocurrencies as a means of payment. The likes of Amazon and Starbucks, for example, are adopting cryptocurrency payments in their stores in one form or another, and many others are very likely to follow suit in the foreseeable future.
