The crypto adoption index is part of Chainalysis’s upcoming 2022 Geography of Cryptocurrency Report. Chainalysis claims that CSAO is home to seven of the top twenty countries in this year’s index: Vietnam (1), the Philippines (2), India (4), Pakistan (6), Thailand (8), Nepal (16), and Indonesia (20).
India continues to lead CSAO in the unweighted crypto activity, receiving $172 billion in cryptocurrency value from July 2021 through June 2022. Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, and Singapore follow close behind, receiving more than $100 billion.
Furthermore, the study conducted by Chainalysis noticed that most of the web traffic related to crypto services was NFT-based. The study mentioned that 58% of web traffic from CSAO IP addresses to crypto services in Q2 2022 was NFT-related, and 21% was to the websites of play-to-earn (P2E) blockchain games.
When it comes to the crypto adoption index, Vietnam is ranked the highest. The Philippines made a giant leap from the 15th to the second position. Both of these countries have similar growth drivers: play-to-earn (P2E) games and remittances.
