Europe leads the world in cryptocurrency transactions

The usage of crypto technology has grown exponentially in the last few years. The COVID19 coronavirus hit the world, but the growth of blockchain technology did not stop. Instead, with the world recovering from the pandemic, exponential growth is expected in blockchain technology and cryptocurrency. The latest data shows that Europe is leading in technology and currency. Especially Britain, which exited from the EU, is the global leader.

The report published by Chainalysis indicates the growth and the whole story. Central, North, and Western Europe contributed the maximum. Their contribution was maximum in the region as well as globally.

This European region, also known as the CNWE, was lagging behind Eastern Asia before March 2020. But, after that, it occupied the first position with a considerable margin. AS per Chainalysis

“The region has received more than $1 trillion worth of cryptocurrencies over the last year, around a quarter of global activity in the same time.”


This massive annual growth shows the magnitude with which cryptocurrency is growing in this region. And this will impact the acceptability of cryptocurrency in global trade and transactions too.

The United Kingdom alone contributed around $170 billion. As you know, there are thirty countries in this region. The maximum transaction was done in ETH/wETH and followed by Bitcoin, Stablecoins, and Altcoins.

East Asia’s share in the cryptocurrency market declined drastically after the corona pandemic. And there are no signs of recovery as of now. Africa, the Middle, South Asia, and the Middle East did not record any significant growth last year. Although, Middle and South Asia now are on the third spot above East Asia.

North America still holds the second position, and as the effects of pandemics subside, it is expected that this market will take the first position in 2022.
