According to the study published by Sherlock Communications, in Brazil and Colombia is where there is more interest among the population in acquiring cryptocurrencies. The report also reflects that there is still a lot of ignorance in relation to Blockchain a distributed ledger system. A sequence of blocks, or units of digital information, stored consecutively in a public database. The basis for cryptocurrencies. and digital digital technologies are these electronic tools that have the ability to generate, store or even process data. currencies.
Sherlock Communications, la agencia de comunicaciones, realizó recientemente un estudio en el que verificó la adopción cripto en varios países de Latinoamérica, en el cual encontró que Brazil y Colombia figuran en los primeros lugares del ranking, donde los residentes manifestaron una mayor intensión por convertirse en usuarios de dichos activos.
The study in question consulted the opinion of some 1,200 participants spread a price difference between asking and selling prices of the asset. across Brazil, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Argentina and Chile, and found that the Latin American ecosystem shows good signs for a boost in cryptocurrency cryptocurrencies are digital currencies that use cryptographic technologies to secure their operation. adoption.
Brazil and Colombia, the countries with the highest adoption in Latin America
Specifically, in relation to Brazil and Colombia, the indicators of good adoption are directly associated with what would be the proportion of respondents interested in acquiring cryptocurrencies in the next 12 months.
In this regard, of those surveyed in Brazil, at least 25% expressed intentions to invest investing is when you put money in a financial scheme with the intent of making a gain. in cryptocurrencies. This represents a 91% increase over last year’s results, where only 13% of participants indicated interest in acquiring digital currencies. Estimates presented bySherlock Communications say that of the total number of residents living in the South American nation, a total of 36 million could become crypto-users by 2023.
On the Colombian side, the agency found that 22.3% of respondents would be interested in investing in cryptocurrencies. However, its growth over last year exceeds 208%. The study was carried out in the previous study, since only 5.2% said they agreed to become crypto-investors.
The next places in the ranking are occupied by Argentina (18.4%), Mexico (16.9%), Chile (16%) and Peru (12%), but the latter was the country where the growth compared to last year was much more pronounced, since the number of interested parties increased by more than 1,100% compared to the last study.
When comparing these results with those reflected in the report published in August by the firm Chainalysis important changes are evident. In that study Venezuela was listed as the Latin American nation with the highest crypto adoption, followed by Argentina, Colombia and Brazil, although here other indicators were considered, mainly related to the data provided by exchanges and platforms.

Other interesting facts
Among other interesting findings highlighted by the team atSherlock Communications The fact that Latin America, in general, figures as a region that could experience a large crypto adoption between 2022 and 2023. In this regard, the Managing Partner of the agency, Patrick O’Neil, commented:
Our survey has revealed that Latin America is poised to experience a major surge in the uptake of digital currencies in several countries in the region.
However, the study also indicates that there are several aspects that play against this projection, and among them is that there is still a great lack of knowledge and understanding about how cryptocurrencies work, as well as the most recommended mechanisms for the acquisition of such assets, reasons cited by respondents as reasons that hold back those interested in buying digital currencies.
It seems that the lack of knowledge about these issues is more pronounced in Argentina, where 89.2% of the participants indicated that they had never heard about Blockchain , although they did know something about cryptocurrencies. They are followed by Peru with 85%, Chile and Mexico with 80%, Colombia with 77% and Brazil with 68%.
On these results, the consultant Blockchain paraSherlock Communications, Luiz Hadad, commented:
“The lack of knowledge about Blockchain technology, which creates the ability to exchange businesses that allow customers to trade cryptocurrencies for fiat money or other cryptocurrencies. currencies without intermediaries using decentralized, immutable a property that defines the inability to be changed, especially over time. digital ledgers that are the basis of all cryptocurrencies, suggests that many respondents’ understanding of this area is quite shallow…. Por mucho que este informe nos muestra que los latinoamericanos creen que las criptomonedas y la Web3 jugarán un papel importante en su futuro financial, it also reveals that there is a large knowledge gap that frustrates many people’s desire to take the first step into the digital economy (crypto space or crypto world). “.
