The reason for this was the tightening of rules regarding virtual asset service providers in Singapore. As a result, this led to a decrease in the number of Bitcoin ATMs in the country.
The United States is in third place in the ranking. Fourth is Australia.
Switzerland rounded out the top five. By the way, the country is still committed to technological innovation. This is evidenced by the inclusion of ETH in the crypto asset service of BBVA Switzerland. Also, bitcoin was declared legal tender in Lugano.
