ANN ARBOR – The Survey Research Operations unit (SRO) at the University of Michigan’s Survey Research Center (SRC) is partnering with the newly launched Coinbase Institute for a comprehensive survey on cryptocurrency.

Working in conjunction with Vikramaditya S. Khanna, William W. Cook Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School, as the principal investigator for the project, SRO will conduct a national data collection to study U.S. households’ adoption of and feelings toward digital currency as a part of the Coinbase Institute’s overall drive toward a better understanding of the trends related to cryptocurrency.

“The Coinbase Institute has a potentially transformative mission – to enhance our understanding of the critical issues in the development of digital assets markets and web3. I am delighted that the University of Michigan and our research group are working with Coinbase Institute to conduct the first comprehensive survey on the use and adoption of crypto (or digital) assets in the United States,” said Khanna. “We intend this to become a critical benchmark through which to understand the growth, development, and regulatory issues facing digital assets markets and Web 3.0.”

Coinbase launched its new initiative on May 18, 2022, describing the project as a global crypto-native think tank, grounded in evidence-based research.
