美国的“加密货币州”都有哪些?

数据公司Reward Expert通过莱特币、瑞波币、以太坊、比特币和加密货币等关键词分析了谷歌趋势的流量数据,旨在研究美国各州近三个月对加密货币的兴趣。随后,该公司确定了加权平均数,并根据兴趣和使用情况对美国各州进行排名。

其研究结果还包含了GIS(地理信息系统)数据,列出了接受比特币支付的大型机构所在地以及安装比特币ATM的地点,旨在评估加密货币在购物等交易类型中的可用性。

由于获取其他加密货币的数据存在一定难度,我们主要关注的是比特币。我们统计了各州接受比特币支付的大型机构以及比特币ATM的数量,计算出了平均值,并对各州进行排名。整体排名是通过各种的兴趣以及基础设施搭建状况得出的。

对加密货币最感兴趣且基础设施最完善的州分别是:

  1. 纽约州
  2. 内华达州
  3. 华盛顿特区
  4. 加利福尼亚州
  5. 科罗拉多州
  6. 佛罗里达州
  7. 犹他州
  8. 新罕布什尔州
  9. 华盛顿州
  10. 密歇根州

研究者还选取了其中几个州进行了重点分析。

从对加密货币的兴趣来看,纽约这个帝国州排名第二,应用方面排名第七,但其累计得分令其成为美国加密货币氛围最浓厚的地区,尽管这里还有可笑的Bitlicense——面向比特币公司的经营许可证。研究者认为纽约为去中心化的加密货币提供了友好的环境——作为美国重要的科技中心,同时是世界金融之都,纽约市将全州对加密货币的兴趣推到了极高的水平。纽约人对莱特币和以太坊的兴趣将该州的兴趣水平评级提高到了96.25(总分100)。至于比特币基础设施建设,纽约州共有23台比特币ATM机(其中20台都在纽约市)。而从这方面来看,纽约则落后于乔治亚州,但在接受比特币支付方面却是遥遥领先。

提到加州,研究者表示,作为硅谷的所在地以及美国重要的科技中心,加州对加密货币感兴趣并不令人意外。通过对谷歌趋势关键词搜索数据的分析,加州对比特币、莱特币、以太坊和瑞波币的兴趣值分别在98、92、97和85。该州对‘加密货币’一词的搜索了也不低,分值达到了93。在这里,接受比特币支付的机构超过了500家。

别名蜂窝州的犹他州并未在实际应用方面起到多大作用,但其对加密货币的兴趣使其榜上有名。研究者说:

乍一看,犹他州似乎不可能榜上有名。从地理位置上看,它临近排名第六的内华达州和排名第十的科罗拉多州,但这并不是它上榜的原因。犹他州对比特币的兴趣值高达81分,其中接受加密货币支付的公司集中在盐湖城地区,也就是说,该州相对完善的科技领域可能是驱动其兴趣增长的因素之一。

密歇根州对加密货币的总体兴趣值不高,但在应用方面排名第八。

如果只看比特币ATM的数量,密歇根的排名可能更加靠前,这里安装了12台ATM机。而接受比特币支付的公司就不多了。但从另一方面来看,很少有其他州和密歇根一样可以用加密货币支付整容手术费用。

由于美国政体的特点,各州在立法上都有所不同,针对加密货币和区块链的相关规定更是五花八门。除了纽约州的Bitlicense之外,亚利桑那州已正式将区块链写入州法律,怀俄明州宣布加密货币矿场可以免税……另外,SEC(美国证券交易委员会)和CFTC(美国商品期货交易委员会)也为加密货币监管操碎了心。

希望美国相关部门能够尽早就加密货币监管达成统一意见,为加密货币的发展提供合理的环境。

最后,研究者还就兴趣和应用对各州进行了排名。

对加密货币最感兴趣的州分别是:

  1. 加利福尼亚州
  2. 纽约州
  3. 新泽西州
  4. 华盛顿州
  5. 阿拉斯加州
  6. 内华达州
  7. 佛罗里达州
  8. 犹他州
  9. 康涅狄格州
  10. 科罗拉多州

对加密货币应用最广的州分别是:

  1. 华盛顿特区
  2. 新罕布什尔州
  3. 乔治亚州
  4. 内华达州
  5. 科罗拉多州
  6. 堪萨斯州
  7. 纽约州
  8. 密歇根州
  9. 密苏里州
  10. 俄勒冈州

Reward Expert used Google Trends traffic data for keywords such as Litecoin, Ripple, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and cryptocurrency in an effort to gauge US states interest levels for cryptocurrency during a three month period this year. The company then determined a weighted average and ranked US states by interest and usage.

Ten US States Where Crypto is Taking Off

Coming up with its findings also involved Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Data “containing the locations of all known establishments that accept Bitcoin as a form of payment, as well as Bitcoin ATMs, to gauge the usability of cryptocurrencies for purchases and other transactions. As data for other currencies was difficult to come by, we used Bitcoin as a proxy for all currencies. We obtained a count of the total number of establishments and ATMs in each state and calculated the number per capita and ranked the states accordingly,” Reward Expert noted. “An overall rank was derived by averaging interest and infrastructure.”

MOST COMBINED INTEREST AND INFRASTRUCTURE

10. Michigan

The Wolverine state didn’t rate at all in terms of general interest, but it did in usage (8th). It managed to just make the cumulative top ten, however. “Michigan would rank higher on our list if we were to go solely on its number of Bitcoin-enabled ATMs, with a total of 12 statewide. There are fewer establishments that accept Bitcoin payments on a per capita basis. On the other hand, there are few other states with multiple places where you can get cosmetic surgery and pay with cryptocurrency,” the survey explained.

09. Washington, 08. New Hampshire,

07. Utah

The beehive state didn’t move the needle in terms of actual usage, but its interest in crypto managed to keep it alive in for a spot on the cumulative. Reward Expert notes, “At first glance, Utah would seem an unlikely member of this top ten. Certainly, it is geographically contiguous with sixth place Nevada, and tenth place Colorado (both of the interest top ten), but that is not much by way of an explanation. Interest is highest for Bitcoin (81/100), with establishments accepting crypto payments concentrated in the Salt Lake City area, suggesting that the state’s relatively well-developed tech industry may be one driver of interest.”

06. Florida, 05. Colorado,

04. California

“Home to Silicon Valley and one of the major hubs for the US technology industry, California is unsurprisingly the state in which interest in cryptocurrencies is highest across the board,” researchers detail. “California tops Google Trends’ keyword search data for specific currencies, such as Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Ripple, scoring 98, 92, 97 and 85, respectively, out of a possible 100. It also ranks highly for searches for the term ‘cryptocurrency’ itself, coming in at a score of 93. The state also has over 500 establishments where Bitcoin is an accepted form of payment.”

03. Washington, D.C., 02. Nevada,

01. New York

The empire state ranked second in crypto interest, seventh in usage, but its cumulative score makes it the number one crypto environment in the US, even with its silly Bitcoin License in New York City. “New York, would naturally rank as one of the usual suspects. Likewise a major US tech hub, and also the financial capital not only of the US, but arguably of the world, New York City drives the statewide average level of interest to stratospheric levels. New Yorkers’ interest in Litecoin and Ethereum helps boost New York’s overall trends score for interest in specific currencies to 96.25 of 100. [Its] availability of Bitcoin infrastructure, with a total of 23 ATMs statewide (20 of which are in New York City, plus Westchester and Nassau Counties, with the remaining three in the Capital Region),” make it a hospitable environment for decentralized currency, the report states. “On this measure, New York trails only Georgia in absolute terms, while leading it in terms of the number of places where Bitcoin is accepted for payments.”
