What other countries made the top? The second place in the ranking is occupied by the Philippines, and the third place is by Ukraine. Russia ranks 9th, while China, which has a ban on cryptocurrencies and mining, closes the top ten. The authors analyzed a large number of cryptocurrency transactions and related indicators while compiling the ranking. The report indicates that interest in this asset type has declined since the peak of global adoption of cryptocurrencies in Q2 2021, but it remains above pre-2019 levels.
