The rapid pace of innovation and increased investment in the cryptoasset industry is increasing the need for information analysing these developments. With the publication of the first edition of the Global Cryptoasset Benchmarking Study three years ago, the CCAF set out to progressively track and take the pulse of this nascent industry by transparently collecting, analysing and disseminating knowledge about cryptoassets. Similarly, the 3rd Global Cryptoasset Benchmarking Study seeks to shed light on the market dynamics of the cryptoasset industry since late 2018.
The report collates data from entities operating in four main segments of the industry: exchange, payments, custody, and mining. A total of 280 entities from over 50 countries across various regions responded to the surveys. This benchmarking report is compiled using data from one of the most comprehensive and robust databases currently available in the cryptoasset industry.
