Coindesk State of Bitcoin Q3-2015 report: Bitcoin, Blockchain, VC funding, and more

Coindesk just released their latest State of Bitcoin report for Q3-2015, revamping the report to now be called the State of Bitcoin and Blockchain because of the significant shift in focus this year in blockchain technology.

In the report Coindesk further solidified the point we made in our Fall 2015 Top Rated Bitcoin Exchanges report, which said:

“FinTech is the new buzzword this year, mainly due to the new blockchain phenomenon and banks working with bitcoin companies in attempts to learn more about it, which has garnered a tremendous amount of interest in financial services which is helping to lay the ground work for many new exchange startups in the U.S. and in the United Kingdom.”

In addition the report covers everything from bitcoin price volatility to venture capital investments; including VC funding on bitcoin exchanges and bitcoin wallets. An interesting slide (at the bottom) is the estimated number of bitcoin wallets which is on pace to reach 12 million by the end of the year.

There is a lot of good information in the report, but I just pulled out some relevant slides to share below.
