What The Report Said:

The report noted, “Out of our top 20 ranked countries, 10 are lower-middle income: Vietnam, Philippines, Ukraine, India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Morocco, Nepal, Kenya, and Indonesia. Eight are upper-middle income: Brazil, Thailand, Russia, China, Turkey, Argentina, Colombia, and Ecuador.”

Countries Performance:

On the index, India ranks above the US, UK and Russia suggesting that the country’s crypto community is not far behind in pushing for further use of the technology. The Philippines and Ukraine have taken the second and third rankings, respectively, showing a significant preference for crypto adoption in the near future. The global index is led by Vietnam for the second consecutive year, emerging as the country that is most eager to embrace cryptocurrency adoption. After landing thirteenth on the ranking in 2021, China reentered the top ten this year. This is very intriguing given the Chinese government’s crackdown on cryptocurrency activities since last year.

India’s Concern:

The rate of cryptocurrency adoption worldwide peaked in Q2 of 2021. Since then, adoption has fluctuated in waves, but it’s crucial that it is still far higher than it was in the 2019 bull market, the report emphasized. The Indian government still hasn’t laid out a proper regulatory framework for the cryptocurrency industry except for the 30% crypto tax which came into effect on July 1 of this year. Last month, the RBI governor Shaktikanta Das warned Indian citizens against the perils of crypto saying “cryptos may lead to dollarization of the developing countries like India as the prices of crypto tokens are mostly denominated in dollars.”
