Newfoundland and Labrador

Newfoundland and Labrador placed bottom in the new study, claiming a spot as the Canadian province least interested in cryptocurrencies. People living in the province appear less keen on crypto than the rest of the country, with an average of 500 monthly searches per 100,000, over 150 less than any other region.


Nunavut was the closest to Newfoundland and Labrador on the study, taking the second-last spot and claiming the title of Canadian territory least interested in cryptocurrencies.

Commenting on the findings, a spokesperson from Datslots said: “Following the launch of crypto exchange platform Coinbase in Canada, it is fascinating to see which areas across Canada are most interested in cryptocurrencies.

“As various cryptocurrency firms continue to expand across Canada, we will be keeping an eye on search trends to spot if Canadians’ interest in crypto continues to grow.”
