It was mostly because countries like Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and India were late to adopt the cryptocurrencies when compared to their western counterparts. Also, the regulations from governments and pushbacks from large financial entities came first in the western countries.

However, the most noticeable part of the difference between 2 years of top exchanges is the meteoric rise of the 24-hour trading volume. The difference in just 2 years of the top crypto exchange in is 120 folds.
