Leading cryptocurrency exchanges in the Netherlands in 2018, by age group

This table 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, by age group. Approximately 29 percent of the respondents aged 18 to 34 years old indicated they used Coinbase for these means. LiteBit, an exchange from the Netherlands, was used the most by respondents aged 35 to 49 years old. 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. In the first three quarters of 2017, there were approximately 44,000 transactions in Bitcoin from the Netherlands on a trading platform called BTC Direct. In addition, Belgium and the Netherlands have several Bitcoin ATM installations.
