Judging by the amount of investment in crypto companies, London turned out to be a European cryptocurrency center. Firms that are registered in the UK capital have attracted financing for the largest amount of $ 1.6 billion. The second place in this indicator was taken by organizations from Zurich, which received $ 1 billion. The top three were closed by Berlin firms, in which $ 541 million was invested.
