    Top-15 Crypto Exchanges Register 51% Decline in Trading Volume

    Abstract:On average, a 51.6% decrease was registered on the 15 largest crypto exchanges in June.

      Cryptocurrency trading volumes on major exchanges fell by more than 40% in June aided by the market crash in May and the ongoing crackdown in China. As the Bitcoin slump continued, a daily volume maximum of $138.23bn was traded on 22nd of June, down 42.3% from the intra-month high in May.

      According to data from London-based researcher CRYPTOCompare, spot trading volumes fell to $2.7 trillion with derivatives volumes down to $3.2 trillion (40.7%).

      On average, a 51.6% decrease was registered on the 15 largest crypto exchanges in June. This was also seen for BTC and ETH futures open interest, which were down 31.8% and 29.3% respectively.

      “Headwinds continued as China persisted with its crackdown on bitcoin mining,” CryptoCompare said. “As a result of both lower PRICES and volatility, spot volumes decreased.”

      As Chinas stringent crackdown to rein in cryptocurrency began in May this year, Bitcoin fell by almost 35% and volatility in the market reached a new peak.

      “Aggregate open interest fell for the second month in a row, from a weekly average of $27.8bn in May to $16.4bn in June (40.9% decline). This is adjacent with the continued fall in price in cryptocurrency markets, as Bitcoin saw a 6.0% decline during June.”

      In June, Bitcoin somewhat recovered but fell by more than 6%, the lowest since January. While crypto trading volumes tend to increase during price volatility swings, the loss of volumes as registered by BINANCE in June reached $ 668 billion.

      However, despite regulatory checks from countries across the world, Binance still retains the position of being the biggest crypto exchange across the trading world. In terms of volume loss, Binance was followed by Huobi Global with $162bn (down 40.2%) and OKEX with $141bn (down 41.6%).

    Bitcoin Global Legalization: A survey of countries that accept and reject Bitcoin.

    Since the inception of Bitcoin in 2009 by the unknown founder popularly known as Satoshi Nakamoto, the march for its legalization as well as other cryptocurrencies had continued till this point. While some countries had officially legalized Bitcoin and accepts it as a legal tender, others rather reject and ban it. The rest tend to maintain a neutral approach of tolerating it without either banning nor legalizing it. The major reason for this has been that Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies lacks regulation and centralization and hence, beyond the control of the government. However, there is a general vision that given the popularity of Bitcoin itself and other cryptocurrencies, more countries will in no distant time give an official approval and legalization of Bitcoin and Cryptocurrencies.
