The Bank of England, aka the UK’s central bank, aka “the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street,” posted a Twitter poll earlier this week asking people how they would like to receive money this Christmas. The vast majority preferred “digital currency.”
The poll opened on December 17 and still has two more days left for voting, so the results could change. But as of writing, 72 percent of the more than 9,700 people who responded voted for digital currency. Cash has so far come in second, with just 20 percent of the vote, while bank transfers and gift vouchers lag behind, with six and two percent of the vote, respectively.
