Trend study highlights the most popular crypto assets in Europe and the UK – Bitcoin reigns in Europe while Shiba Inu conquers the UK
This week, a report was sent by Bitcoin.com News askgamblers.com analyzing last year’s Google Trends (GT) data to find out what are the most popular crypto assets in the UK and Europe. According to the results, Bitcoin (BTC) is the most popular digital currency in Europe as it was the most searched crypto in 21 countries. BTC outperformed its peers in askgamblers.com’s study as the leading crypto asset is calling the shots in countries like Germany, Finland, Norway, Poland, Romania and Belgium.
While Bitcoin (BTC) has been the top cryptocurrency across Europe, Shiba Inu (SHIB) is the most popular cryptocurrency in the UK, according to the researcher’s aggregated Google searches. The meme token SHIB has seen a significant surge in popularity over the past 12 months. The results of the study show that SHIB commands six different countries and the United Kingdom. In fact, SHIB is huge in Russia, France, Spain, Ukraine, Italy, Hungary and Switzerland in terms of GT searches.
Additionally, Ethereum (ETH) was the third most popular in the study, attracting interest from Sweden, Czech Republic, Latvia and Slovenia. Then cardano (ADA) ranked fourth in terms of GT search data as Andorra, Netherlands and Bulgaria showed great interest in ADA. As Dogecoin (DOGE) is the most popular in the US, it is the 5th in Europe as the meme crypto is popular in Albania and Greece.
“With 38 million crypto users in Europe and thousands of cryptocurrencies on the market to choose from, it’s fascinating to see which ones people are most interested in investing in,” a spokesman for askgamblers.com told the newsdesk of Bitcoin.com. “Although bitcoin is the most popular overall, interest in Shiba Inu has grown to outpace bitcoin in key countries like Russia and the UK.”
In the US research study published by Coin Insider, Shiba Inu (SHIB) only captured seven states across the country. Dogecoin was named a leader in this study as DOGE was the most popular in 23 states in the US in terms of GT searches. SHIB’s popularity in the US has been ranked as the fourth most popular crypto in the country, according to the data in this particular report.
