A new survey is in the daily cryptocurrency news, mostly because of its findings which show that even 60% of the respondents based in the United States think that cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and other altcoins should be treated like fiat currency in political elections.
According to Clovr, which is the outlet that researched and surveyed 1,023 people, almost 60% of the voters answered that crypto and the US dollar should be treated the same while 21% of them said the very opposite.
“60 percent of eligible voters believed that it should be legal to donate cryptocurrency in federal elections under the same rules that apply to donations in U.S. dollars,” the research showed.
Even 63% of the voters identifying as Republicans said that crypto was secure enough to be deployed for political purposes – while 52% of them said the same. For the Independent voters, only 45% were reportedly comfortable with the donations in crypto.
Moreover, 73% of the respondents who were aware of digital currencies think that security was not an issue for political donations, while 23% expressed their concerns. When asked about their financial stability issues with crypto in politics, more than half of the Republicans (52%) said that crypto was stable enough, while the Democrats and Independents were 40% and 35% sure in that, respectively.
To sum things up, even 60% of the respondents said that crypto in political campaigns would increase the foreign interference in the US elections, where Democrats showed more concern than the other groups.
