“The pre-configured devices equipped with an operating system allow access to the blockchain network from a normal network. They are used to provide Web3 access and personal home servers to blockchain networks.
These devices majorly adopted in industries such as banking, financial service, and insurance (BFSI), government, retail & e-commerce, travel & hospitality, automotive, transportation & logistics, IT & telecommunication, etc.”
According to the report, North America is leading the way and is expected to maintain the largest market size in the next five years.
Despite the long list of hiccups and challenges that remain between blockchain entrepreneurs and US policymakers – from an ongoing lack of clear guidance from federal regulators, to statements by President Donald Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin condemning cryptocurrencies, to multiple delays on Bitcoin ETF decisions along with delayed regulatory approval for upcoming Bitcoin futures trading platform Bakkt, which is finally expected to launch on Monday – the US accounts for the largest share of the North American blockchain devices market in 2018.
The US is also home to the most Bitcoin and crypto ATMs with 3,507 machines across the country out of the roughly 5,594 installed around the world, according to CoinATMRadar.
