South Korea, Singapore, and Japan had the greatest number of users on FTX, according to CoinGecko. After Binance pulled out of Singapore last year, many crypto traders in the city-state switched to FTX.

One of my favorite quotes is from Stephen, who predicted: “the crypto industry will mostly be relegated to the dark corners of the financial system as it slowly slides into irrelevance.”
