Crypto adoption is on the rise in developing countries across the globe, with a particular concentration in Latin America, Africa, and Asia as of 2022. This trend is supported by the fact that in 2021, El Salvador recognized Bitcoin as a currency, and in 2022, the Central African Republic followed suit.

According to Forbes, the cryptocurrency market is experiencing a significant shift, particularly after the dip in 2023 due to the overall macroeconomic situation.
