With regards to cryptographic forms of money, Asia represents countless crypto clients, organizations, miners, merchants, and then some. The digital money and blockchain analyst from messari.io, Mira Christanto, clarifies that Asia has a past filled with despots, cash devaluation, [and] capital controls – all ready for interruption. This has likely prompted Asia being the most dynamic cryptographic money markets, as indicated by Christanto’s new discoveries. 

Her recently distributed investigation called “Asia’s Crypto Landscape” covers the key trades, assets, and market producers that characterize crypto in China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Southeast Asia, with editorial on administrative and speculation patterns. Countries like China, Japan, Hong Kong, India, South Korea, Singapore, Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and more are canvassed in the 98-page study. 

“Leading crypto countries, such as China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, and Singapore, have deep pools of liquidity, while other countries have a great potential to scale,” Christanto’s report says. “The nature of traditional finance has played a key role in the adoption of crypto: capital controls pushed investors towards cryptocurrencies in China and South Korea while low-yields pushed adoption in Japan,” she added.

“By the end of 2019, six of the top ten largest crypto firms in the world were located in Asia,” Christanto’s data further shows. “As of January 12, 2021, of the top 20 token projects with headquarters, 42% of the market capitalization is based in Asia. Asia has an outsize role in the crypto markets due to a variety of reasons.”

Christanto’s report proceeds: 

“Each country has its own nuances, but factors include high penetration of public market investing, high-technology pedigree, the prevalence of WiFi, deep penetration of e-payments, propensity for gambling, and high percentage of computer- science graduates. Furthermore, Asia’s development as a finance hub has helped contribute to fintech progress. Japan, Shanghai, and Hong Kong are among the top five largest stock markets in the world.”
