Top-tier crypto exchanges trading volume drops by 26%

Reprotedly, the trading volumes of top-tier cryptocurrency dropped last month by 26.26% as lower-tier crypto exchange dropped to below 20%. This is as the crypto space has seen numerous companies, projects and assets come and go with the wind.

Crypto exchanges precisely have seen their share of changing tides as outfits like BitMEX and Binance have grown since 2017 while newcomers such as Bybit have more recently entered the spotlight.

CryptoCompare December 2019 exchange revealed that trading volumes of these exchanges according to benchmarks are rated AA-B dropped to represent only around 27.4% of the total market. This indicates that the market share of lower-tier exchanges, rated C-F, increased, even though these platforms saw their trading volumes drop by 19.9%.

However, in November 2019, the volume of top-tier exchanges dropped nearly 7% that month, while that of lower-tier platforms rose 3.7%. Reportedly, top tier exchanges represented 31.4% of the total market in November as in October, they accounted for 33% of the trading volume, while lower-tier exchanges only had 67% of the market share.

CryptoCompare‘s review also analyzes derivatives, pricing data, and more. Reportedly, Binance has become a key derivatives player since it launched its futures products with its BTC perpetual future now being the third most traded product by total monthly volume, at $29.4 billion.

Platforms with the highest perpetual feature on Ethereum where Binance and BitMEX with 44% and 23% of the volume respectively. OKEx was, however, the top derivatives exchanges in USD terms, trading a total of $99.6 billion in December.

Exchange volume does not equal web traffic

Data has shown that exchanges with the highest amount of transactions necessarily have the most web traffic and engagement. This means that large traders trading big positions drop toward exchanges with higher liquidity as lower volume exchanges may gain traffic as a result of promotional offers, gimmicks, and other tactics.

Alongside, traffic and engagement numbers from spot-based exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance may indicate interest from the mainstream public as they may host more traffic and yield less. Often times patrons of these platforms are nonprofessional traders interested in investing a few dollars worth of cryptocurrency engage with these platforms.
