The number of people using bitcoin in the UK has risen by almost 300% since the beginning of the year.
The number is expected to grow further in the months ahead.
A total of £1.2bn was transferred in digital currency in 2016-17.
The rise has been driven by bitcoiners wanting to protect their investments and protect their identity, which has been the biggest driver of demand for bitcoin in recent years.
The UK is one of a number of countries that are seeing a surge in demand for cryptocurrencies, with the US and Canada the biggest markets for bitcoin.
Many people who buy cryptocurrency are also using it to store their savings.
This includes people who want to avoid paying interest on their savings, who have bought their own currency for investment purposes and are not using it for money laundering or for illegal activity.
These individuals may be buying bitcoin as an investment, as they are using the digital currency as a store of value.
But bitcoiners are not alone in using it as a payment method.
Others are using it in the same way as bitcoin.
Here is a look at how bitcoin is being used in different places around the world, and what the consequences are for businesses and consumers.
Australia The biggest growth in the use of bitcoin has been in Australia.
The country has seen an increase in the number of bitcoin transactions since the end of November.
A spokesperson for the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) told The Australian the number is increasing.
ATO has also said that it is seeing an increase as more people use bitcoin to store value and to transfer money across borders.
Australia’s digital currency transaction network has seen a boom of activity, particularly as more individuals and businesses use the technology to do transactions.
Bitcoin exchange platforms such as Bitstamp and Coinbase have seen a surge of transactions, while BitPay and Coinbase also saw a rise in bitcoin transactions.
A lot of businesses are also looking to use bitcoin as a means of payment for goods and services, such as buying food online.
Some are even using bitcoin to pay for their own goods.
Australia has seen more bitcoin transactions in recent weeks than any other country.
This is a positive sign for the economy as a whole, as many Australians are likely to want to purchase goods and other services online.
There are also many bitcoin holders who are now willing to pay in cash.
The Australian government has been keen to push for more businesses and individuals to embrace digital currencies.
It has also been encouraging more people to invest in the country.
The government has promised to provide support for bitcoin payments, with its new digital currency policy.
It will provide a range of services to help businesses, individuals and small businesses make better use of digital currencies in the digital economy.
This will include financial services and education.
However, there is still a long way to go in terms of acceptance and regulation in Australia, and the country is still struggling to find its feet in the market.
China This is not the first time China has seen interest in bitcoin.
In the past few years, it has seen large bitcoin transactions and interest in cryptocurrency in general.
However the country has also seen a significant growth in bitcoin use, with a total of $8bn of bitcoin trading volume reported in 2016.
In 2016, there were nearly 3,500 bitcoin transactions per day.
This has helped boost bitcoin prices and has also helped drive demand for the digital cryptocurrency.
The People’s Bank of China has been promoting digital currencies and bitcoin as the future of money.
However a number have raised concerns about the stability of digital currency and bitcoin.
A number of digital asset exchanges have reported major losses.
For example, BTC China was reported to have lost $10m (£6.6m) in March 2017.
The news prompted the Chinese government to temporarily halt trading in all of its bitcoin-related companies.
China has also banned bitcoin exchanges.
The authorities have said that they are still working to establish a regulation framework for bitcoin exchanges and businesses, which is a major step towards curbing bitcoin use in the long term.
China is also one of the few countries that do not have a cryptocurrency tax.
It is estimated that the country will have around $US1 trillion in cryptocurrency by 2020.
The Chinese government has also made the case that the introduction of a central bank in the form of the People’s Financial Technology Commission (PFTC) would help with bitcoin regulation and taxation.
But some believe that the PFTC could have a negative impact on bitcoin and other digital currencies, as it could encourage more bitcoin users to turn to illegal activities.
Hong Kong Hong Kong has been a hotbed for bitcoin activity in recent months.
In August, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKSE) reported a surge, with about $US6.7m of trading in the first three days of September.
HKSE also reported that more than 4,000 new bitcoin transactions were reported.
This was followed by a surge on December 31 when bitcoin transaction volumes increased by a total $US30.6 million in one day.
However this was not enough to keep
