Global Digital Currency Market by Type (Central Bank Digital Currencies, Cryptocurrencies), Offering (Hardware, Software), Process, Utility, Application – Forecast 2024-2030

Dublin, March 14, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Digital Currency Market by Type (Central Bank Digital Currencies, Cryptocurrencies), Offering (Hardware, Software), Process, Utility, Application – Forecast 2024-2030” report has been added to’s offering.

The Digital Currency Market size was estimated at USD 1.81 billion in 2023, USD 2.03 billion in 2024, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.64% to reach USD 4.17 billion by 2030.

The digital currency comprises an ecosystem of platforms, technologies, services, and products that facilitate the creation, exchange, storage, and circulation of digital currencies such as cryptocurrencies and central bank digital currencies (CBDCs). These currencies employ cryptographic principles, distributed ledger technology (DLT), and blockchain technology to ensure secure transactions and maintain the decentralized nature of the market.

Key applications include cross-border remittances, payment processing systems, e-commerce transactions, online investments, supply chain tracking systems, and asset tokenization. Increasing adoption of digital currencies for financial transactions due to their borderless nature, higher transaction speeds, low transaction cost, and rising demand for decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions drive the use of digital currencies. In addition, efforts made by economies to launch CBDCs propel their usage worldwide.

On the other hand, the lack of a uniform regulatory framework across different jurisdictions creates uncertainty for businesses in the digital currency space and poses a risk to market stability. Cyber attacks or hacks on wallets coupled with volatile prices hinder their adoption. However, the introduction of new digital currencies, advancements in supportive technologies, and the launch of virtual currencies by organizations are expected to proliferate market growth in the coming years.
