Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most rapidly growing technologies in recent months. Notably, AI has become more prevalent across all sectors, including the cryptocurrency sector.

People in the cryptocurrency market are utilizing AI to assist them in making well-informed decisions. Users are using AI to assist them with predictive analysis, risk management, portfolio management, and other tasks.

As a result, Real Research, an online survey app, launched a survey on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the crypto market. In this survey, Real Research aims to find out what the general public thinks about this rapidly growing technology being used in the crypto market and what it means for the market’s future.
