The survey indicates that the public’s level of confidence in the European Central Bank’s digital currency project is lower than that of the government.
CryptoCaster Quick Check:
The people of Spain don’t seem to be as enthusiastic about the European Central Bank’s digital currency initiative, despite the Bank of Spain supporting the possible implementation of a digital euro.
This is the outcome of a poll called “Study on the habits in use of cash” that was released by the Bank of Spain. Ipsos polled 1,600 people in total—1,600 members of the general public and 600 representatives of small enterprises. Inquiries on the digital euro, a prospective pan-EU digital currency issued by central banks, were also included (CBDC).
Only 20% of the general public, according to the survey, is aware of a “digital euro.” It is nearly the same among small business owners, at 23%. But this query was put forth in 2022.
Just 20% of respondents said they would add the digital euro to their existing payment options in 2023, while 65% said they would not. These figures were more favorable to the CBDC a year ago: in 2022, only 58% of respondents said “No” to that question.
The youth (18–24) age group is the most enthusiastic about the digital euro; 36% of them stated they would utilize the money. This percentage gradually decreases as one gets older: it is 31% for people in the 25–34 age range, 24% for people in the 35–44 age range, 18% for people in the 55–64 age range, and only 7% for people over 65.
The Bank of Spain released a document outlining the characteristics and applications of the digital euro in October. “Does not allow to exploit all the advantages offered by the growing digitalization of the economy and society,” the bank said in reference to the physical cash format. But with the digital euro, electronic payments will become an essential component of the financial system.
Recently, Spain has shown that it is fully committed to the EU’s digital economy agenda by deciding to launch the pan-EU crypto framework, Markets in Crypto-Assets (MiCA), six months ahead of schedule.

From Elon Musk, Larry Fink(BlackRock) to Jamie Dimon(JP Morgan Chase) a number of billionaire owners have a powerful hold on so much of the hidden agendas’ which eludes the public concerning the paradigm shift juxtaposed by cryptocurrency and web3 emerging technologies. CryptoCaster is different. We have no billionaire owner or shareholders to consider. Our journalistic efforts are produced to serve the public interest in crypto development and institutional disruptions – not profit motives.
And we avoid the trap that befalls much U.S. and global media – the tendency, born of a desire to please all sides, to engage in false equivalence in the name of neutrality and retail consumer protection. While fairness and transparency dictates everything we do, we know there is a right and a wrong position in the fight against fiat global banking interest and monetary reconstruction precipitated by the emerging crypto ecology.
When we report on issues like the FTX, Binance and Ripple crisis, we’re not afraid to name who or what is uncovered. And as a crypto sentinel, we’re able to provide a fresh, outsider perspective on the global monetary disruption – one so often missing from the insular American and European media bubble.
