Great info, just wondering how come such a big percentage in UK doesn't have an idea about cryptos.
@coingecko, is there any chance to provide us with a world map showing the overall crypto acceptance/ or awareness?

Such a map would indeed prove useful.. The closest one to what you want would probably be - for a map detailing where Bitcoin is accepted (data is user generated) - for a map of known Crypto ATM (data also user generated)


Thanks @coingecko for your detailed answer!

Great review...thanks for the updates

Many still do not know the opportunity of crypto and maybe more don’t understand well. Unfortunately, it is those that need it the most like the unbanked that have not had the access to the education for it.
