Regulators, legislators and stick-in-the-mud Peter Schiff may be skeptical of crypto, but the American people say they believe in crypto and want to leave it free to innovate and develop, according to a new bipartisan survey by the Crypto Council. The poll of 1,200 likely voters taken in early October was very positive, with the most surprising and pleasing finding being how wide-spread crypto ownership is compared to traditional financial instruments. The poll found that 13% of those surveyed hold crypto. This compares to 12% who hold mutual funds, 5% invested in bonds, and the 16% who hold stock. Poll respondents held crypto equally whether Democrat or Republican.
