According to Crystal’s analytic blockchain platform from Bitfury, the UK, USA, Hong Kong and Singapore boast the largest number of registered cryptocurrency exchanges.
Crystal has published the “Report on international transfers in bitcoin for 2013-2019”, which presents data on cryptocurrency transactions and bitcoin transactions for the period from January 1, 2013 to June 30, 2019.
As the results show, the largest number of registered cryptocurrency exchanges is in the UK, USA, Hong Kong and Singapore. Argentina, India, Mexico, Russia and Indonesia are among the countries with the least number of listed exchanges. It is noteworthy that almost 10% of the exchanges indicated in the report do not have a country of registration.
In 2018, the total amount of bitcoins directly transferred between exchanges amounted to about $ 92.6 billion. Exchanges from the G20, Hong Kong and Singapore countries transferred a total of $ 65.1 billion.
Earlier, the leaders of the G20 countries left their attitude to cryptocurrencies at the same level, saying that they do not pose a threat to currency stability, and technological innovations can bring significant benefits to the economy.
Although the United States is considered a world leader, but when it comes to the introduction of cryptocurrencies and innovations, the situation is still unclear and not very comfortable for the development of companies in this field.
