Norway’s Booming Bitcoin and Crypto Interest
Bitcoin and cryptocurrency is booming in Norway, from ownership to interest and mining
What Is Behind Norway’s Booming Bitcoin And Crypto Interest?
“Arcane Research shows in its latest weekly update data from a survey conducted by themselves and EY. The study found that at the moment around 420,000 Norwegians currently own cryptocurrencies. This translates to 10% of Norway’s adult population owning digital assets, an increase of 120,000 people or 7% since 2021.
The gender gap in crypto adoption seems to be closing in the country. Norwegian females are showing higher interest in crypto this year with a rate of crypto ownership that doubled from 3% in 2021 to 6% in 2022.
63% of the surveyed females said to have purchased crypto for the first time between 2021 and 2022, with a 24% share happening in the first months of this year alone, which indicates the increasing interest.”
