The year 2022 has been projected as a prosperous one for cryptocurrency as digital money is set to benefit from the Asia-Pacific market as it continues to dominate in the global sphere, according to a report by Allied Market Research.

The report states that banks in China are turning to digital money as the government focuses on Bitcoin to counter the issue of fraud and augment transparency in transactions.
