EToro digital transformation and current pandemic
Wealth creation and providing simple, transparent services is the platform plan to reach many users. However, the current situation is challenging for many trading markets. The situation has forced many people to use social media platforms to invest. The digital transformation has boosted eToro revenues as many users are registering and investing in stock trading.
The new change is economically friendly and easy to adopt. However, the concern is what will happen once the Corona Virus is gone or subsides. Will, the investors continue using technology to make trade deals, or will they resolve back to old trading tactics. For proper planning, eToro took a survey for more than 1800 European adults (nine countries). The survey would help understand what people feel about the current digital transformation, how they have adapted to the technology, what they expect about digital innovation in the future or after the pandemic.
Key findings in the report/survey
The survey was conducted in nine countries: Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Romania, Spain, and United Kingdom.
- The survey shows Denmark is the highest in digital penetration indicators. They are using many digital services such as online banking, retail sales, and digital platforms to interact with authorities.
- Spain is ranking first in digital readiness: many people in Spain are okay with the transition and use of digital platforms.
- Digital transformation and use of digital platforms is relatively low in Poland. However, the country supports digitalization than any other country ranked in the survey. Germany ranks as the weakest in the level of support for digitalization.
- The UK ranks as the top best in current levels of digital transformation.
- Though Poland ranks low in digital penetration, the country values digital growth. Poland advocates for digital investment in different sectors.
What the future for technology adoption
Technology penetration depends on how they embrace the change and use it in different sectors of life. Technology can help increase revenue and ease how people conduct business. The eToro survey shows two in five participants or adults feel that digital transformation is growing fast. There is also a percentage that feels the change is overwhelming. However, technology has helped in the current pandemic time. The new technology is helping streaming live Covid-19 results. The European people (51percent) agree to the fact that technology will change life and business.
The survey shows different digital challenges and positive effects in stock trading and other business. There are challenges such as cybercrime which tampers user’s data and loss of funds. However, the bright side demonstrates that digital technologies are already rooted in everyday activities, mainly in Europe. The people are ready to embrace digitalization in different sectors and also in economic growth.
