A survey by the SEC on Thais’ interest in digital assets found that 46% are speculative, followed by 33% who invest in long-term returns, while 11% use them as a source of savings, and another 10% believe it is easier to make money from digital assets than from a full-time job.
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has noted that the trend of investing in digital assets is becoming increasingly popular among young investors, both domestically and internationally. The number of trader accounts on Thailand’s digital asset exchanges increased more than tenfold in February 2022 compared to 2020.
Therefore, the SEC Research Division conducted a study with experts and collected data across various platforms to identify Thai people’s characteristics, attitudes, experiences, and investment behaviors related to digital assets.
