We often talk about ICOs and token sales, but there is also clearly a lot of venture capital activity going on in the market. It’s quite easy to find US-based or global investment data around the web but it isn’t so easy for Europe. So, I thought it would interesting for all of us if I start with the top countries in Europe getting the most investment for their blockchain and cryptocurrency companies.
I worked with PitchBook data and used companies in blockchain and cryptocurrency categories, which have headquarters in Europe. Instead of the number of companies, I generated my chart by the number of deals. And the investment data is for the period of 2010-2017.
Switzerland is second and the Netherlands is the third country in our ranking, in terms of number of deals. Russia, France, Germany, Sweden and Spain are the other countries which have more than 10 deals.
