Approximately 3.3 million Australians own cryptocurrencies according to a recent report, with this number expected to double into 2022. Let’s take a look at the most popular cryptocurrencies (also known as “altcoins”) for Australia this year.
For a coin to make this list we have used our website crypto news data, which includes page views on crypto information pages, crypto news landing pages, website search data and news frequency data. We have excluded Bitcoin (BTC) from the list as it’s not considered an altcoin.
