These are the results based on a Q2 retail investment survey conducted by cryptocurrency firm Voyager Digital, which polled 3,671 high-frequency traders on the Voyager platform.
The results of the survey show that 81% of respondents are more confident in the future of cryptocurrencies, even after the intense price drops in April and May, which caused Bitcoin and other altcoins to lose more than 50%. value.
Many coins have since recovered significantly, although the market remains uncertain. Even so, 87% of those surveyed said they plan to increase their crypto holdings in the next quarter, an increase from 80% of those who said so in Q1. Not just in terms of money. Individuals, hedge fund institutions also joined in the same.

The percentage of respondents who believe Bitcoin will hit a price of $71,000 is 18%, down from 20% in the previous survey.

About 55% said they are more optimistic about Cardano than any other cryptocurrency, with Dogecoin (DOGE) coming in second 11%, followed by Chainlink (LINK) with 6% and Polkadot (DOT) similarly 6 %.
