According to Finder’s survey, more than half of Australians think Elon Musk invented Bitcoin. Moreover, over 40% of the respondents were not aware that Bitcoin had a Limited supply.
Finder is the most visited comparison website in Australia. They surveyed 1004 Australians to find out more about their knowledge of Crypto. According to the survey results, about 56% of Australians are not aware of mysterious Bitcoin creator Satoshi Nakamoto.
Though Elon Musk is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, he is not the founder of the world’s largest cryptocurrency, Bitcoin. Moreover, many respondents did not know that the Bitcoin supplies were limited to only 21 million coins, with 44% thinking that it has an unlimited supply, just like Fiat money.
This survey comes in conjunction with the new firm launching a bitcoin trading service through its app. Fred Schebesta, co-founder and CEO of Finder, said that the new service would help Australians move into Crypto.
He also said that they had removed all the complexity, and with the help of the Finder app, Australians can buy a bitcoin in 3 minutes. He also added that they could sign up, enter the details and deposit the money; that’s it. He also made a prediction that the Bitcoin price would hit $250,000 by 2021.
According to Schebesta, the current dip is just a short-term thing. He also added that the price of Bitcoin has moved because China said something or Elon said something, or another government said something.
However, the Crypto market crashed last week following Musk’s announcement that Tesla was suspending BTC payments for the car purchase. In addition, the market tumbled even more, when the CEO hinted about dumping BTC from Tesla’s balance sheet in the second quarter of 2021.
