“Cryptocurrency market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 32.31% between 2017 and 2023”
The cryptocurrency market was valued at USD 541.0 million in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 2,902.0 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 32.31% between 2017 and 2023. The growing remittance in developing countries, high cost of remittance across the border, and fluctuating monetary regulations are the major drivers for the growth of the cryptocurrency market. The growth of the cryptocurrency market is further propelled by the transparency and immutability of the distributed ledger technology and benefits such as faster transaction and reduction in total ownership cost. However, the uncertain regulations and standards pertaining to cryptocurrency restrain the growth of this market.
“Cryptocurrency mining held the largest market share in 2016”
Mining is an integral process for the generation, transmission, and validation of transactions in cryptocurrencies. Whenever a transaction takes place and is validated, miners collect these transactions and include them into the block they are currently solving. Every block has to be solved before being broadcast and added to the blockchain. The solving of a block involves the use of hardware to solve mathematical puzzles that are difficult to crack.
“Market for Ethereum is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023”
The Ethereum blockchain focuses on running the programming code of any decentralized application, including Distributed Applications (DApps) and smart contracts, enabling it to be built and run without any downtime, fraud, control, or interference from a third party. The advantages offered by Ethereum over bitcoin, such as electronic cash, smart contract technology, and proof-of-stake, are expected to drive the growth of the market for Ethereum.
“Cryptocurrency market in APAC is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2017 and 2023”

Besides, Japan has the highest level of awareness and knowledge of cryptocurrency. The government regulations in Japan are also favorable for cryptocurrency transactions. All these factors would help drive the growth of the market in APAC at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
