According to CCN, the poll by the Bank of England is not for fun but rather a way to understand the public interest regarding cryptocurrencies, now that value pf cryptocurrencies has fallen. But cryptocurrencies popularity remains strong as ever, despite the crash in value.
Although not openly stated that BoE is supporting cryptocurrencies, the bank has already been trying to figure out the place for cryptocurrencies. According to Mark Carney, Governor of the BoE, noted
” Even though plans aren’t imminent, and cryptocurrencies don’t currently perform the role of money in the British economy, he remains open to the prospect of a Central Bank-issued digital currency.”
