This statistic shows the answers to a survey question about which currency exchanges, or trading platforms, are used by consumers in the Netherlands for the trading of cryptocurrencies as of 2018. Approximately 23 percent of the respondents indicated they used Coinbase for these means. LiteBit, an exchange from the Netherlands, was used by 20 percent of the respondents.
Bitcoin is a so-called cryptocurrency, a digital currency that uses blockchain technology as a means of security. Because of its design, it is difficult to get an insight in the full size of the Bitcoin market in individual countries. Because Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies reached the news often in 2017, approximately 60 percent of the households in the Netherlands who invest in cryptocurrencies started doing so in 2017.
