Statista Dossier on Bitcoin and Ethereum users and user preferences in various countries worldwide

With many countries pushing for digital payments during the COVID-19 pandemic and several developments occurring on the cryptomarket, more and more people have started to wonder how big the adoption of Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH) and other virtual coins is worldwide. Despite that it can be difficult to grasp in tangible data and see significant changes on a near-daily basis, what trends can be observed in this fast-evolving market? Who, for instance, are the people that tend to use or be interested in cryptocurrency and how would they use them?

This Statista Dossier will not focus on cryptocurrency prices or market caps, something that is covered in the Dossier for Bitcoin (BTC) and a Dossier on several other cryptocurrencies - like Ethereum (ETC), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XPR), Dogecoin (DOGE), and Cardano (ADA). Instead, this Dossier investigates crypto ownership, as well as the age and gender of people who are using or trading cryptocurrencies in selected countries worldwide.
