How many people are using Bitcoin, by Country

According to recent January 2019 statistics, Kenya ranks among the top 3 countries in Africa with the highest number of Bitcoin users.

Among the top countries in Africa with the highest Bitcoin usage include:

  • Seychelles – More than 1% of the population uses Bitcoin
  • South Africa – 0.1 – 0.99% of the population uses Bitcoin
  • Kenya – 0.01 – 0.099% of the population uses Bitcoin
  • Angola – 0.01 – 0.099% of the population uses Bitcoin
  • Nigeria – Less than 0.01% of the population uses Bitcoin

While the above numbers are no doubt encouraging, a closer at the world map will reveal that Africa is the only continent with the least Bitcoin adoption ratios based on population.

Among the top countries with at least 1% of the population using Bitcoin globally include:

  • Singapore
  • Netherlands
  • South Korea
  • United States
  • Finland
  • India
  • Switzerland
  • The U.K.
  • New Zealand
  • Denmark
  • Germany
  • Russia
  • Canada
  • Sweden
  • Norway
  • Australia

. . . Among others.

A 2018 report had ranked Kenya among the top 3 African countries with the highest amount of bitcoins traded and at number 23 worldwide. The above statistics, though conservative, seem to indicate and authenticate these figures and position Kenya as a key crypto adopter in the region.
