The Bitcoin ecosystem has become increasingly globalised, with more countries now accepting the digital currency.
However, some countries still remain stubbornly reluctant to embrace the cryptocurrency.
This is because the technology itself is still far from ready for widespread use, with the first batch of Bitcoin wallets being launched in January 2018, a year after the cryptocurrency was launched.
But now that the technology has matured and more countries are beginning to accept the digital asset, there are growing concerns over its security and scalability.
A new report by CoinDesk and CoinMarketCap reveals the most popular cryptocurrencies among traders across North America, Europe, and Asia.
The report covers the top 30 currencies, currencies that represent a portion of the total Bitcoin market, and top 20 Bitcoin markets as of November 30.

While bitcoin has seen significant gains in value over the past year, there have been many questions over its long-term viability.
For instance, a study by Blockchain, a blockchain analytics firm, has warned that the cryptocurrency could be “on the brink of a bubble” by 2023.
And while it’s certainly possible that a bubble might develop, some analysts believe that a more gradual decline could lead to a boom.
“As we enter the next decade, bitcoin’s future may be more uncertain than at any point in the last decade, as new developments and innovations take hold,” said Nick Colas, Chief Analyst at Blockchain.
“The crypto-currency’s market capitalization is set to surpass $1.5 billion by 2025, and we predict a major bubble in the next two years.
The cryptocurrency’s volatility has also been a concern, with several bitcoin exchanges suspended due to the digital commodity’s volatile price.
According to the report’s findings, many of these exchanges have already been hacked, and it’s estimated that there are more than 1,200 bitcoin exchanges in the world.
But there’s no denying that the growth of Bitcoin is growing, and that it’s becoming more popular among investors and traders around the world, as evidenced by the rise of digital currencies such as Ethereum.
For instance, bitcoin is currently trading at a value of $1,100 per coin, according to CoinMarketcap, which puts the cryptocurrency at around 20% of the global market cap.
However, that number is set on a volatile trend, with CoinMarketcoast currently reporting that bitcoin is trading at around $1 per coin in 2017.
For this reason, the researchers believe that it may take another year or two before the cryptocurrency becomes a mainstream currency.
While Bitcoin remains the most valuable cryptocurrency globally, its growth is also seeing a growing interest among investors in alternative cryptocurrencies.
The most popular cryptocurrency in 2017 was Ethereum, which gained nearly 80% of its value in 2017 alone, according the report.
While there’s a large amount of volatility in the digital coin, it’s also relatively stable and stable in terms of its market capitalisation.
But it’s not just the price that’s rising in value, but the value of the currency itself.
As of November 28, bitcoin was trading at an average price of $2,091 per bitcoin, and Ethereum was trading for $1 each.
As we continue to learn more about the technology, it may come to light that there’s much more to the cryptocurrency than the price, and many people are looking for alternatives to the traditional currency.
For example, some are looking to develop a cryptocurrency based on a Blockchain-based blockchain, which is a blockchain-based distributed ledger system, which could be used for any kind of financial transaction.
Blockchain has already seen many applications in finance, from lending to managing assets on a global scale.
However the blockchain also has the potential to become the next generation of digital currency, which may ultimately lead to its own boom.
