Offering such a wide customer base access to digital currency transactions by an established mainstream financial institution is a mighty step forward that puts Germany ahead of any other economy. Questions of custody, identity, and fraud have hampered many countries' policies toward promoting crypto adoption. Potential investors within the bank will not need further authentication for opening a crypto wallet.
Hong Kong rises and Lugano declares Bitcoin legal tender. But there have been other significant movements in the Coincub ranking over the last three months. The Netherlands, France, and Spain have all risen in rank thanks to high numbers of crypto transactions, blockchain start-ups, and positive regulation. In Switzerland, rising eight positions, the independent Canton of Lugano now openly recognizes Bitcoin as legal tender. The only other country to do this is, of course, El Salvador. Hong Kong also rises to number six from a low spot of 35 last year due to the proliferation of crypto-based courses at leading institutions, high numbers of Bitcoin nodes, and numerous blockchain organizations.
In terms of sheer numbers, the USA is still a crypto powerhouse with the highest volumes of crypto trading, nodes, and Bitcoin ATMs. It currently ranks at number three. In the Coincub rankings, however, Bitcoin trading volumes or Bitcoin ATMs are weighted in relation to comparative data, such as GDP or population size to give a more balanced account. Other positive changes in the ranking include Romania and Japan. China is still rooted to the bottom following its widespread ban on trading and mining crypto.
