This initiative builds upon its prior success, notably a collaboration with Datamesh and OTR in 2023. That partnership yielded the launch of Australia’s first in-store crypto payment system, operational across more than 440 Peregrine retail locations in Victoria, South Australia, and Western Australia.

Estimates suggest that roughly 20% of Australians may own crypto. But the Reserve Bank of Australia expresses reservations about the accuracy of such figures due to potential survey biases.

Nevertheless, a growing trend of interest in cryptocurrencies is evident, with some Australians even holding assets like Dogecoin. Notably, even within the RBA, some staff members have engaged in personal crypto investments, further highlighting the increasing prevalence of these digital assets.

Moreover, a survey conducted following the US SEC’s approval of spot Bitcoin ETFs on Jan. 10 indicated a 25% increase in positive sentiment towards Bitcoin amongst Australians.
