The US has a whopping 22 mln of those people who engage in cryptocurrency trading. For comparison, this is more than the maximum circulating supply of Bitcoin but less than the current amount of Coinbase accounts.

Japan (6.14 mln) and South Korea (5.73 mln) lag behind the leader with 7.21 percent and 6.73 percent respectively.

India, which was one spot short of making it to our list, deserves an honorable mention given that the local crypto industry remains pretty much alive despite the infamous RBI crackdown.

Meanwhile, Oceania is represented by Australia (14th place) and New Zealand (51st place).
