“Regulation concerns have increased, although far few expect political blockers and a government ban. This suggests investors see regulation being the solution rather than an outright ban,’ the report noted.

The survey further said over 30% investors have invested in Bitcoin while 28% have invested in Ethereum.

“Digital assets weighting in portfolios have risen from their survey lows to represent 1.1% of portfolios, up from the October survey where they were just 0.7%,” the report by CoinShares said.

The report said that investors' key reasons for investing in digital assets are both speculative and exposure to distributed ledger technology.
