Founder of the popular microblogging and social networking website, Twitter Jack Dorsey on Saturday posted about Nigeria being the highest percentage in the world to use cryptocurrencies including the popular Bitcoin.
The CEO seems to be surprised as he tweets “Wow: 32% of Nigerians own Bitcoin, the highest percentage in the world.”
According to Statista, Nigeria is indeed the first among the countries that are using/owns Bitcoin. Vietnam (21%) goes second, followed by the Philippines with 20%.
Other countries included on the list were Turkey, Peru, Switzerland, India, China, U.S, Germany, and Japan.
Hey Jack! Just to clarify, the stat the article is quoting is from a study of max 4k Nigerians who say they've used/own crypto (https://t.co/u4HdNrTsv6).
Internet pen. is only around 50% (https://t.co/5kKdE6ylcc) so it's unlikely that 32% of all Nigerians own Bitcoin pic.twitter.com/RmMfMRunrq— Ire Aderinokun (@ireaderinokun) August 14, 2021
