Thirty per cent of UK investors feel they have “missed the boat” for Bitcoin

Thirty per cent of UK investors feel they have “missed the boat” for Bitcoin

A recent survey showed how UK investors viewed Bitcoin as an investment. Some said they would invest more, while others think they have “missed the boat.”

Missing the Bitcoin boat

A survey by policy think tank Parliament Street found crypto investors in the country had mixed feelings for Bitcoin’s future prices. Some said they would invest more, while others think they have already “missed the boat.”

The survey consisted of over 2,000 people who identified as “investors” to assess their crypto and general investment plans.

A significant amount of surveyed investors said they missed out on a potential profit of over $1.2 million had they moved all of their assets into Bitcoin at the start of last year.

However, 30% of all respondents said they would not invest in Bitcoin as they had “missed the boat.” The asset has surged from under $5,000 last year to over $55,000 and rising—with some feeling the steam could be over.

While some felt they had missed the boat, 31% of respondents said Bitcoin would reach over $69,000 in this year. 18% of the respondents had an even bullish prediction, with a target of $130,000 per Bitcoin or more.

37% of investors noted that ‘traditional’ assets, such as stocks and shares, were too risky as investments in current times due to fears of overinflation, incessant money printing, and a falling economy.

“As a result, cryptocurrency, and especially Bitcoin, has become an increasingly legitimate option as an investment asset, with 29 percent revealing that they would never have considered investing in cryptocurrency before the most recent bitcoin bull run, but they are now,” noted the survey.

Bitcoin appeal

Bitcoin is after years of trading is considered as the quintessential “macro” hedge by a cohort of influential investors.

The corporate actions have caused some to have greater trust in cryptocurrencies. 24% of all respondents said Elon Musk’s recent endorsement of Bitcoin—via his company’s $1.2 billion purchase of the asset last month—made them more confident to invest in the sector.

Meanwhile, the picture was not all good news. 55% of all surveyed investors said they remained sceptical of Bitcoin’s recent bull run, adding they had “no plans at all” to invest in any cryptocurrencies this year.
