Around the world, the majority of searches related to cryptocurrency involve the word “Bitcoin,” a new report by ConsenSys concludes. Excepting a few Asian countries, most of the world wants to find information about Bitcoin. In the U.S., UK, Nigeria, Brazil, France, and elsewhere, roughly 70% or more of all crypto-related searches are for Bitcoin. Comparatively, Taiwan and Japan have an abiding interest in Ethereum, blockchain, and related cryptocurrency more broadly.
ConsenSys, which was among the first companies to develop for Ethereum, needs the data to understand where key markets might be. While their report largely summarizes the data, the company goes out of its way to note the places with the most interest in its flagship blockchain.
