The European Payments Council (EPC) has published the results of its poll on blockchain technology, showing that 90% think blockchain will have a significant impact on payments by 2025.

The poll found that only 10% of respondents said that blockchain would have “no significant impact”.

Those who think blockchain technology will have a significant impact on European payments by 2025 chose the following scenarios:

1. 36%: 'impact in some niches or aspects of the payments activity (blockchain technology is adopted for specific purposes)';
2. 30%: 'emergence of innovative customer payment solutions based on blockchain (the technology spreads significantly like several other major ones)';
3. 24%: 'impact on the overall infrastructure underlying the payments mass market (the blockchain becomes the main pillar in the technological paradigm shift)'.
