Australia ranks second in holding Dogecoin after the U.S.
Australians are becoming more aware of cryptocurrency—mostly owning Bitcoin, Ethereum, Dogecoin, Ripple, and Solana.
Australia is among the English-speaking countries leading in cryptocurrency adoption along with the US and the UK, a study showed.
Even with regulatory uncertainties and pushbacks, cryptocurrencies take shape as asset classes in the mainstream. Aside from digital currencies, non-fungible tokens (NFT) and Metaverse are in the trend.
