The post World Gold Council Survey Shows Cryptocurrency Investment the 5th Most Popular in Russia appeared first on Bitcoin News.
“The rise of cryptocurrencies demonstrates that there is a desire for choice and appeal among retail investors. As the Russian investment market takes shape, opportunities for different investment products will emerge and gold will need to respond,” the WGC authors said.
The WGC surveyed 2,023 Russian investors that stem from all around the country. 68% of the surveyed participants said “gold is seen as an effective store of value.”
The World Gold Council (WGC) is considered an authority on the gold industry as the market development organization works with all types of industry leaders in the precious metals field. WGC also manages the very popular web portal gold.org and it often publishes research studies concerning safe-haven investments.
Just recently, WGC published a report concerning gold investments in Russia and the study also touched upon cryptocurrency investments as well.
“Most Russian investors believe [gold] holds its long-term value and protects against currency and inflation fluctuations,” the WGC study details. In a chart that highlights the “investments in Russia over the past 12 months,” cryptocurrency investment vehicles represent a higher percentage than gold.
Ahead of cryptocurrency investments include things like savings accounts, foreign currencies, real estate, and life insurance respectively. Below cryptocurrencies and gold on the WGC list are investments like collectibles, gold coins, stocks, and government-issued bonds.
