I am a political science graduate student looking to do research on bitcoin and cryptocurrency. To do so, however, I need data. While many datasets provide wonderful histories of bitcoin price and trade across time, I need data across space too for the type of research I am looking to do. I have found a large cache of data by countries' fiat currency used in transactions in the localbitcoins exchange here that does what I'm looking for, as an example: https://coin.dance/volume/localbitcoins/. I have also found graphs tracking traffic for major exchanges from Statista, but I haven't had any success finding or accessing the raw data. See here: https://www-statista-com.libdata.lib.ua.edu/statistics/944261/share-of-bittrex-visitors-by-country/ (same thing goes for the data for the data for Bithumb, Huobi, and Upbit on this site).

It doesn't matter to me so much what data exists (purchases, traffic, anything--I'm new to this stuff!) so long as there is some data out there on bitcoin by country. I also understand that this is a high ask considering the anonymity and decentralization of the blockchain, which are what attracted me to the topic in the first place. tl; dr where can I find bitcoin raw data by country?

  • try UsefulTulips.org for some good peer-to-peer trade volume data by geography. He doesn't do much exchange volume though. – Sachin Meier May 20 at 0:33
