🆕 More features
As a result, over 97% of people say they will use a new wallet if it is secure, usable, cross-blockchain, and cross-platform.
It means existing solutions don’t meet all user needs. Our respondents would like to add

1️⃣ The survey shows that even those not engaged in crypto want to tap into it but lack not only money but also credible information and some self-confidence. It means they need more education, customer support, and trustworthy sources of info. More in-app hints and tips could help solve the issue.
2️⃣ Another significant insight is that roughly 2/3 of people are concerned about scams, while nearly 1/3 say they were hacked ➡️ solving security problems remains a priority for crypto wallets and the crypto space in general. Moreover, more than 97% of users don’t mind shifting to a new wallet if it has enhanced security and usability and is cross-platform and cross-blockchain.
3️⃣ Users need more options to interact, follow each other, get notifications about other users’ actions, and share some data from their profiles to find a like-minded community. The OneArt team believes creating an all-around profile for crypto enthusiasts will help accelerate the mass adoption of crypto, making interaction with the crypto space easy, seamless, secure, and fun.
