Meanwhile, in his comments on the study’s findings, Bobby Ong, Coingecko’s COO and co-founder, said:

“This year, we see a major correction from previous bull cycle highs, which have resulted in significant price drawdowns in an unforgiving macroeconomic environment. This study provides interesting insight into which countries remain most interested in cryptocurrency in spite of market pullbacks.”

The COO added that countries topping the list seem more interested in buying the dip, therefore highlighting “their long-term outlook for cryptocurrencies.”
