Singapore scored 56 on the IRCI this year, up 1 point from 2023. Singapore’s 2024 IRCI score reflects a positive shift in public perception towards cryptocurrency. While overall awareness and ownership might have dipped slightly, other key metrics indicate a growing sense of confidence and optimism in the market. This year’s IRCI also found that Singaporean investors are more sophisticated on various fronts.
