Although there are hundreds of different crypto-currencies – Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Ripple, Link… and new ones are coming out every month, they can all be divided into two categories: Bitcoin and the increasingly Altcoins popularity.
Bitcoin has its own category, since it’s the first crypto-currency to come on the market, while Altcoins is an “alternative currency” and includes all non-Bitcoin crypto-currencies. Within them, another distinction can be made to refer to digital currencies that have a much less volatile price than most crypts: Stablecoins.
Knowing this, what types of crypto-currencies are the most popular in each part of the world? Just the fact that Altcoin is a term for all non-Bitcoin crypts should give us a clue.
In fact, Bitcoin is the most popular and widespread crypto currency, and it constitutes the majority of the crypto currencies on all continents of the world. According to the latest Chainalysis report, in the United States, Bitcoin represents 72% of all crypto-currencies; while in East Asia, the area of the world where it has the least presence, BTC represents 51% of all crypto-currencies. BTC is also the favorite crypto currency in Africa (69%), Western Europe (66%); Latin America (63%), Eastern Europe (57%), the Middle East (54%) and Central Asia (53%).
However, Altcoins popularity is gaining ground: they already represent 49% of the total crypto-currencies in East Asia and 47% in Central Asia; of which 16% are Stablecoins such as Ethereum or Litecoin. Their presence in other regions outside Asia is less. In North America, they are only 28% of the total, while in other regions their percentages are slightly better: Middle East (46%), Eastern Europe (43%), Latin America (37%) and Western Europe (34%)
A theme of usability
The difference between Asia and the rest of the world in the use of Altcoins is that most professional crypto-currency dealers are located in this region. This sector specializes in the purchase and sale of more volatile goods with higher profit margins and risks, requirements that Altcoins meets.
Altcoins’ regular popularity is also based on the principle of usability: users, having the ease of implementing Altcoins to make daily transactions, have more confidence in the crypto-currency of their choice.
For this last point, in Latin America some initiatives have been implemented under financial technologies that promote the usability of both Bitcoin and Altcoins. The best example of this is the new App Web Service platform, Crixto.
