58% Of the Asian Crypto Traffic Was NFT-Related in Q2 of 2022
October 5, 2022 (Investorideas.com Newswire) An analysis from CryptoMonday.de reveals that they drove 58% of the total traffic to Asia in Q2 of this year.
The CEO of CryptoMonday, Jonathan Merry, commented on the data. He said, "The NFT industry has experienced meteoric growth during the past two years. This is largely driven by the increasing adoption of blockchain technology and the rise of digital collectibles."
He added that games like Cryptokitties and Gods Unchained have been crucial in popularizing the use of NFTs. "These games have shown that NFTs can be used for more than just art or digital collectibles. They can be used for gaming and other forms of entertainment as well."
NFT Blockchain Games
21% of traffic to crypto services was due to play-to-earn blockchain games. These games give players rewards in the form of cryptos and frequently include NFTs as part of the action.
The Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam were the top three countries in terms of traffic to blockchain gaming sites. This is likely due to the large number of gamers in these countries.
Crypto Adoption in India and Pakistan
Crypto laws in India and Pakistan may slow the adoption, but it will not stop innovation. In 2021, Indians and Pakistanis were the second and third most frequent Bitcoin users. They now rank fourth and sixth, respectively, in the year 2022. This could be due to changes in the law in those countries recently.
India imposed a 30% tax on all cryptocurrency earnings on April 1, 2022, with no deductions for losses. The government also instituted a 1% transaction deduction at source (TDS) on July 1.
As a result, all crypto users now pay an extra 1% fee on all transactions. The move has lowered activities around cryptos in those territories. Full story and statistics can be found here: 58% Of the Asian Crypto Traffic Was NFT-Related in Q2 of 2022
