I see cryptocurrency as everything that money is, but plus more. It’s electronic, it’s global, it’s transparent, decentralized, and it’s smart.Jess Renden, CEO of Cointree
According to Finder, the crypto ownership rate in Australia was 23%, which topped the global average of 15%, as of September 2022. Crypto has come a long way since its first launch in 2009.
Whilst speaking at the Fintech21 conference in Melbourne in May 2022, Jess Renden, the CEO of Australian crypto exchange Cointree, shared her hopes for crypto mass adoption in the future. She says the space has progressed hugely, adding how “it’s actually really easy to trade, really easy to get into it. It’s not scary. And everyone can do it.”
With the rise in value, number, functionality and adoption of cryptocurrencies, crypto will play a greater role in our personal lives, corporate treasuries and the financial markets generally.
Will crypto replace money entirely?

Money is trusted and regulated by the government but crypto is on the way to a more regulated space as well. With cash and coin being seen less in trading activities, is crypto the future of money?
