In addition, the study also determined bitcoin sentiments. It found that of the countries with at least 0.5% of total bitcoin conversations, Peru was the most positive about crypto, followed by Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Italy.

On the other hand, Venezuela has a more negative outlook on cryptocurrency, with 62% of its total tweets having a more negative tone. Mexico, Estonia, Brazil, and Ireland comprise the top five in descending order.

Meanwhile, 61.5% of bitcoin-related tweets from the United States are expressed in an “extremely positive” tone. In general, nearly 60% of the bitcoin tweets around the world are positive.

The TIE research also looked into tweets about Facebook’s controversial cryptocurrency project. Notably, the United States appears to have more interest with Libra at 43.8% compared with bitcoin at 39.8%. Still, the United Kingdom came in second with the volume of Libra posts, followed by France, Canada, and Australia.
