A new report says that Nigeria, the biggest source of Bitcoin (BTC) trading volume in Africa, is one of the fastest-growing crypto markets in the world.

It has been reported according to a new study by major crypto wallet Blockchain.com that Nigeria has seen the largest influx of activity on its wallet app since April 2020.

However, on August 5, the report says that Nigeria has been the best-performing country on its platform over the past three months.

 

The report also notes a 60% increase in usage of Blockchain.com’s web wallet in the region since April. 

In the study, Blockchain.com also pointed out that Nigeria has been the top country searching for Bitcoin on Google.

According to data from Google Trends, Nigeria is leading in terms of Bitcoin interest over the past 90 days to date. The country is followed by a couple of other regions in Africa, as well as Switzerland and Austria.

While Nigeria is the best-performing country on Blockchain.com in recent months, Peru has been the most active country over the course of July.

According to data, Peru, India, and Indonesia are the top three countries according to the level of influx of total wallet transactions during that month.

The report notes that other trending regions include Cote D’Ivoire, Japan, Philippines, Venezuela, Bangladesh, and Bulgaria.

As it has been reported on July 23, an exec at Nigeria-based exchange, Yellow Card, highlighted a rapid increase of crypto adoption in the region.

Chris Mauric, the CEO of Yellow Card, said:

“In terms of the crypto scene and everything, things are growing very rapidly, really across the continent, but specifically in Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, and Kenya.”

Thus, in April 2020, Nigeria became the eighth country in Africa to host a Bitcoin ATM despite the apparent legal uncertainty in the region.
