Top 10 States in the US Most Interested in Bitcoin & Ethereum

Hey Geckos!

We recently did a research study to identify the Top States in America that are Most Interested in Bitcoin and Ethereum. We examined web page traffic on our Bitcoin and Ethereum pages within the United States, between May 2 to August 21, 2022. The data is then indexed on a scale of 0 to 100, and numbers represent web page traffic relative to the highest point in this data set.

Some of our findings might just surprise you – read on to find out which state takes the crown as #1, and which state ranks higher Ethereum market share.

 

California dominates as #1 state in America most interested in Bitcoin and Ethereum

Surpassing all states, California makes up 43% of total Bitcoin and Ethereum web page traffic on CoinGecko, in the United States, signalling the highest interest in these cryptocurrencies.

Bobby Ong, our COO and co-founder commented on the findings: “It is unsurprising that California, as one of the world’s major technological hubs, takes the crown in ‘blue-chip’ cryptocurrency interest. What’s especially notable is Colorado, Wisconsin, New Jersey and Florida’s interest in Ethereum over Bitcoin. It remains to be seen how these rankings and market shares will play out in the coming months, with Ethereum’s Merge around the corner.”
