      “Grassroots crypto adoption isn't about which countries have the highest raw transaction volumes, anyone could probably guess that the biggest, wealthiest countries are far ahead there. Instead, we want to highlight the countries where average, everyday people are embracing crypto the most. If LMI countries are the future, then the data indicates that crypto is going to be a big part of that future,”.

      After the collapse of FTX crypto exchange in 2022, the investor trust in the crypto sector fell drastically.
