Familiarity in the Netherlands with alternative digital currencies in 2017

This statistic shows the answers to a survey question about the familiarity in the Netherlands with alternative digital currencies in 2017. In early 2017, ten percent of the respondents indicated they had not heard of this topic before. Bitcoin is a so-called cryptocurrency, a digital currency that uses blockchain technology as a means of security. Because of its design, however, it is difficult to get an insight in the complete size of the Bitcoin market in individual countries. In the first three quarters of 2017, there were approximately 44,000 trading transactions in Bitcoin in the Netherlands.
