According to a new poll conducted by Redfield & Wilton Strategies of 9,700 eligible voters, 42 percent of Texans would vote to make Bitcoin legal tender. Texas, along with Wisconsin, is the crypto-friendliest swing state in the United States, according to the survey. Only 23% of Arizona residents, on the other hand, support making Bitcoin an official currency. In the state, 40% of respondents said they were opposed to such an initiative.
Overall, every third American living in swing states would support Bitcoin. Georgia has the highest proportion of eligible voters who have never heard of cryptocurrency (14 percent). Only 8% of voters in the “Sunshine State” appear to be unaware of the new asset class, indicating that the state is the most crypto-savvy. The majority of those who do not own cryptocurrency cite a lack of understanding as the primary barrier to investing. At the moment, 48% of Brazilians support making Bitcoin a legal tender. Meanwhile, China’s trust in digital assets has plummeted as a result of the government’s anti-mining crackdown.
