FIS surveyed 3,000 people to learn their opinions of leading-edge technologies, like wearables, bitcoin and mobile payment platforms. What emerged is evidence of a growing market led by an empowered young demographic. It reveals that 25- to 34-year-olds are most likely to try emerging technologies and many people in this group already have adopted them, using them regularly. The future looks to adding even more smart technologies. And, as the products continue to mature, they’ll continue to gain more users. Check out the statistics and insights of other findings from the survey in the infographic below.
