A study carried out in the UK and published last week indicated that almost a third of the country's investors said they would not invest in Bitcoin, or other cryptocurrencies, because they feel they "missed the boat".

Bitcoin saw gains of 630% last year and a quarter of respondents said they would have made more than £ 1 million ($ 1.4 million) in profit if they transferred all of their assets to Bitcoin in early 2020.

The independent survey, The Great Cryptocurrency Report, interviewed 2,000 UK consumers in the last week of February 2021 to evaluate their investment plans amid the economic uncertainty released by the coronavirus pandemic.

More than a third of respondents said they expected Bitcoin's price to rise further this year to £ 50,000 ($ 70,000) and 18% predict a valuation of £ 100,000 by the end of 2021.
