Bakkt study finds nearly 50% of gig workers open to getting paid a portion in crypto
ALPHARETTA, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bakkt Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: BKKT) a digital asset platform that unlocks crypto and drives loyalty to create delightful, connected experiences for a broad range of clients, today released findings from its “Gig Workers & Crypto Study” examining various segments of gig workers and their openness to and understanding of cryptocurrency. While the study was fielded during peak crypto volatility between mid-June and early July, 38% said they were open to getting paid in crypto and openness rose to nearly 50% when asked if they were open to getting paid a portion in crypto.
“The increasing appeal and the existing usage of cryptocurrency among gig workers came through clearly in our study,” said Nicolas Cabrera, Chief Product Officer Payments at Bakkt. “While this group could benefit from increased understanding of how crypto can be used, rideshare drivers, food delivery drivers and other gig workers cite crypto as the next generation of currency and are drawn to the potential increase in the value of their pay."
