More Businesses Will Implement Crypto
Despite the rocky year that crypto had in 2022, it remains a popular form of investment, with around a quarter of American adults investing in it. Given how many people have purchased crypto and how it’s being used more as a regular currency thanks to organizations such as Expedia and PayPal, it’s likely that there’ll be an increase in the number of businesses who implement the use of it. This will also be facilitated by the improved ability for consumers to store multiple coins in the same base.

A Focus on Sustainability
Sustainability has been a large focus in 2023 for businesses and investment, and this is likely to extend into this year. Organizations have a specific focus toward changing customer behavior, given consumers at the moment are only buying what they need. Thanks to growing concerns surrounding the environment and the cost of living, people are understandably cautious about what they spend their money on, and as such, only tend to work with brands who have an openness about their ethics and an eye on sustainability. If businesses fail to do this, then as a result, they’re going to miss out on potential acquisition. The main problem that businesses will face is being able to create products which are sustainable and environmentally friendly, and also affordable for the average consumer. The focus digitally for businesses is going to be ensuring that their website copy and any content they produce is an accurate reflection of their drive towards sustainability.
Complete Digital Transformation
As a result of the pandemic, many small businesses had to become a lot more digital in nature. This has been seen as an advantage given technology’s ability to navigate and solve different problems, as well as increasing the efficiency of how companies operate. Given the benefits experienced by businesses, the digital nature of a lot of organizations will likely continue to expand and be relied on more frequently. This will mean the implementation of AI such as chatbots to enhance the customer experience, more of a drive towards digital marketing, and as has already been discussed, the acceptance of crypto payments. There will be an adjustment period for businesses who are relying more on technology and this will occur throughout a lot of 2023.
