About the tracker:
Each month we check in with nearly 1,000 people 18+ nationwide via the Finger on the Pulse panel to understand their mindsets, attitudes, and behaviors, including:
- What is their familiarity with these four key technologies?
- Is this familiarity matched with an understanding of these technologies?
- Have they purchased/engaged with any of these technologies?
- Are they interested in purchasing or engaging with these technologies in the future?
- With NFTs, what categories are grabbing interest?
- For the second report we analyzed over 9,000 responses gathered over 11 months.
