According to Finder.com’s December report, the UK ranks third in the world in terms of ETH holdings. Since October, the total share of cryptocurrency ownership by the population of the country has grown by almost a percentage – from 5.2 to 6.1%.
2013 users took part in the survey. BTC retained the first place – 42.8% of cryptocurrency holders own bitcoins. However, ETH continues to gain popularity in the country. The UK ranked third in the world in terms of ownership of this altcoin, right after Singapore and Australia, with a total share of 32.9%.
It is noteworthy that the proportion of Ethereum owners among other cryptocurrencies in the world is declining – from 28.2% in October to 24.4% in December. However, the British, apparently, see the potential of ETH and hold positions. Although bitcoin is still the most popular cryptocurrency in the United Kingdom, until December, the share of those who own it was 56.7%.
Note that the fall in the total share of bitcoin ownership was recorded around the world, not only in the UK. In Australia alone, it jumped to 72.7%.
The growth rate of the cryptocurrency market in the UK is slowing down, showing just under 1% in the last quarter of last year. At the same time, the global growth in the proportion of the population owning cryptocurrencies was 4.3% over the same period.
