A new report from crypto firm Paxos revealed that 99% of the United States-based financial services companies surveyed put as much or more focus on crypto projects in 2023 than in previous years.

Paxos surveyed 400 executives from U.S.-based financial services companies with at least five million users and $50 billion in assets under management or $50 billion annual payments volume.

Of those surveyed, 56% said implementation complexity is the largest impediment to launching a crypto solution. Paxos said:

“The resilience of digital assets and blockchain technology in the face of market events, economic challenges, and a need for more regulatory clarity reflects that companies have internalized the value of the technology in the long term.”

The report goes on to say that 51% of the respondents cited market volatility as a major hurdle to their company moving forward with crypto or blockchain projects, and another 43% cited the financial cost of implementation as a significant roadblock.

Despite the challenges, fewer than 2% of the survey respondents said a lack of belief in blockchain’s benefits was an impediment.
