However compared to 2022, there is a noticeable decrease in the concern regarding the availability of crypto-accepting stores/products, suggesting an increased presence of crypto payment options in the market. 
  • There is a significant decrease compared to previous years in the ranking of fraud and scam concerns, indicating a healthier marketplace, increased trust in crypto payments or wider acceptance of crypto payments by prominent brands.
  • The share of cryptoshoppers who utilized the Lightning Network increased 20%. Moreover, crypto-consumers using the Lightning Network or other layer-2 solutions engage in daily crypto-shopping 8x more than nonusers.
