Bitcoin Transactional Volume Crossed $3 Trillion in 2018: Research

The transactional volume of Bitcoin, the world’s leading decentralized digital currency, exceeded $3 trillion in 2018, researchers found.
According to Satoshi Capital Research (SCR), the Bitcoin network experienced $2.2 trillion worth of trading volume. At the same time, it recorded $3.2 trillion in Layer One transactional volume, down 8.3% than the amount in 2017. However, the median change in Bitcoin trading volume since 2009 was positive, rising at an average rate of 2.91% every year.
The New York firm compared Bitcoin’s trading volume with the volume of fiat currencies of emerging economies. It noted that people traded the digital money more than Argentinian Pesos and Bulgarian Lev. At $2.2 trillion, Bitcoin was beaten only by Chilean Peso, Israeli Shekel, and Thai Baht, whose trading volumes were $4.38 trillion, $5.11 trillion and $6.57 trillion, respectively, in 2018.
Source: SCR
“This solidifies [Bitcoin’s] position as a serious global currency, ranking just under the Chilean Peso and more than 6x the Bulgarian Lev,” wrote SCR.
Fake Volumes
The researchers studied graphs provided by CoinMarketCap.com, a renowned crypto data aggregator service which arranges trading data from the order books of multiple crypto exchanges. Several of these exchanges are unregulated so it increases the probability of wash trading, whereby a trading service simultaneously buys and sells an asset to manipulate its value.
According to Blockchain Transparency Institute (BTI), an independent blockchain research group, the volume of top pairs that CoinMarketCap.com sources from exchanges are fake. Trading companies like OKEx, Huobi, and BitHumb have allegedly reported wrong trading volumes of their Bitcoin-related pairs.
“We have calculated the true volume of the CMC top 25 BTC trading pairs,” read BTI. Most of these pairs actual volume is under 1% of their reported volume on CMC. We noted only 2 out of the top 25 pairs not to grossly wash trading their volume, Binance, and Bitfinex.”
OTC Trading
Also, SCR didn’t discuss how a considerable portion of trading volumes does not appear on exchanges’ order books. People with a high number of Bitcoin units exchange them over-the-counter, in a process called OTC trading. Just recently, Goldman Sachs-backed Circle alone posted $24 billion worth of OTC trading volume in 2018 at its exchange. It proved that how big investors use offline services to conduct bitcoin trades – they lie anywhere between $50,o00 and the hundreds and millions of dollars.
Reuters reported that crypto company Genesis Trading handled $75 million to 85 million worth of trading volume every day, which didn’t make to the CoinMarketCap index.
Meanwhile, Tabb Group, a UK-based marketing research firm, in its April 2018 study, said that the OTC market could be 2-3 times bigger than the online exchange market.
“The big deals have to go OTC. A lot of the exchanges limit the order size, so you have to break up your orders, and that’s just fatal,” said Monica Summerville, Tabb’s director of fintech research.

Tron [TRX] and its affiliates added to popular exchanges as market roller coaster continues

Tron [TRX]’s surge in the new year has created ripples in the cryptocurrency world with several updates and developments coming out of the Tron Foundation’s stables. The announcements have generally come in from the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, Justin Sun. The Tron official has been instrumental in propagating the cryptocurrency, a role that he has carried forward in his latest reveal too.
On January 15, Justin Sun announced that Tron had partnered with ABCC, making the cryptocurrency exchange the first platform to list TRX10 tokens. He had tweeted:
“ABCC Exchange is truly an awesome platform that has witnessed great development. We are glad to partner with #ABCC as it’s the first exchange listing #TRX10 tokens. #TRON #TRX $TRX”
The exchange itself had tweeted about it, leading many users to connect the price rise to the development. ABCC Exchange had said:

“We are pleased to announce that TRX is now listed on the OKCoin exchange. Starting today, authorized OKCoin customers can acquire TRX by depositing US dollars or Argentine pesos, and starting on January 17th they’ll be able to trade TRX against USD, BTC, and ETH.”
Justin Sun’s presence in the cryptoverse was made even more apparent when he debunked accusations concerning TRC10 BitTorrent token [BTT]. Sun had rebutted against the former BitTorrent CSO had said that the Tron CEO was not technically sound when it came to cryptocurrencies. As a reply Sun stated:
“The BitTorrent token project recently became the subject of an article about whether TRON provides the necessary processing capacity to handle the thousands of transactions per second required to make tokenizing BitTorrent work.”
He further added:
“BitTorrent parted ways with the former employee quoted in the article upon the early July completion of the acquisition. Since then, our BitTorrent engineering team has been joining their peer-to-peer expertise with TRON’s blockchain team on our shared vision of remaking the internet.”

Coinbase Aggressively Expanding, High Hopes For Crypto in 2019

Crypto exchanges do not get much bigger than Coinbase which has grown at a phenomenal rate over the past couple of years. The firm has not been deterred one bit by this year’s crypto rout and continues to aggressively expand into new markets and with new products.
No Slowing Down into 2019
On Thursday the company said it had expanded into several new countries according to CNBC. Many of them are in Europe and recent new markets for the crypto firm include Iceland, Lithuania, Andorra, Gibraltar, Guernsey and the Isle of Man. Coinbase recently opened an office in Dublin amid fears of a negative outcome from Brexit negotiations.
A number of these new destinations are pitching themselves as blockchain and crypto friendly for new startups to launch their products. Malta and Switzerland are already at the top of the crypto tree and Gibraltar is aiming to catch up with its domestic licensing process for blockchain technology firms. UK CEO of Coinbase, Zeeshan Feroz, said;
“I think you can expect a more aggressive approach to us adding more countries in the coming months. Much of what we’re doing here is driven by customer needs and what we’re seeing in the market,” before adding “I think if you look at last year, a lot of the focus was on people who bought crypto from an investment point of view and a lot of projects raised a ludicrous amount of money as a result of that,”
The expansion plans come right in the middle of a yearlong crypto rout which has seen markets tumble by over 80%, so Coinbase at least is clearly not worried.
New Products and Incentives
In addition to seeking new crypto friendly locations, Coinbase has also expanded its product line. The most recent offering has been a long awaited crypto-to-crypto trading option that most other exchanges already employ. Coinbase has been known for having some of the highest fees in the industry and these are amplified by inflated foreign exchange rates when dealing with fiat currencies. Direct crypto trading will not incur those fees, but there will be a spread between the two assets.
In another initiative to get more people into crypto, Coinbase has offered to pay them to watch videos and take quizzes according to Fortune. This particular offering will be using the recently added ZRX token as the project had set aside 1.6 million of them to give away to Coinbase users.
It is clear that there is no slowing down for the big exchanges. Coinbase is not alone with its expansion ambitions as Binance, Huobi and OKEx have also branched out into new markets and with new products. Big things are anticipated in 2019 for cryptocurrencies and the big boys are gearing up for it.

Bullish on Ethereum But $20,000 a Conservative Bitcoin Price Prediction for 2019, Andy Cheung of OKEx

While Bitcoin is crashing, Andy Cheung, head of operations at OKEx exchange predicts Bitcoin to hit higher than $20,000 next year. However, he is more bullish on Ethereum development which has its hard fork coming in January.
Predicting a Big Year Ahead for Bitcoin & Ethereum
Bitcoin is currently trading at about $3,400, down more than 82 percent from its all-time high (ATH) in December last year. However, Bitcoin bull, Andy Cheung, the head of operations at the second largest crypto exchange, OKEx is still extremely bullish on the leading cryptocurrency.
Andy Cheung took to Twitter to share that the ongoing Bitcoin price crash is no big deal as Bitcoin has gone through even worse. According to his shared data shown below Bitcoin lost about 95 percent of its value in 2011 and 85 percent between the 2013-2015 time period.

And this is making Cheung bullish on Bitcoin price as he writes,
“Look at the percentage increase over the years. Above $20,000 seems already a conservative guess for 2019.”
Just recently, Bloomberg reported that its Galaxy Crypto Index is in oversold territory based on GTI Global Strength Indicator. This indicator “measures the strength of the price by comparing individual upward or downward movements of successive closing values.” Last time, this indicator was oversold has been in late November when “it rallied about 20 percent.” Though a long term upward trend is unlikely to happen, a small relief rally could be in order.
However, Cheung further mentions that he is more bullish on Ethereum which is currently trading at about $88, down more than 93 percent from its peak.
“But personally, I am more optimistic at the development of ETH next year.”
Next year, Ethereum has its hard fork coming in late January that could play in favour of the third largest cryptocurrency.
Recently, CFTC that regulates derivatives shared in a statement that it is planning to seek public feedback on Ether. The questions asked by the agency revolves around the difference between the functionalities, compatibility, governance, and underlying technology of Ethereum and Bitcoin.
A few months back, William Hinman, who runs corporation finance division of SEC said that he didn’t believe token was a security in its current form. This, according to Chris Concannon, president of Cboe marked as a clearance to a “key stumbling block for Ether futures.”

Crypto Exchange OKEx Relists Bitcoin ABC Under Original Bitcoin Cash (BCH) Ticker

Another major cryptocurrency exchange has announced that they deem recent the recently created Bitcoin ABC to be the true Bitcoin Cash. Hong Kong-based OKEx will relist the digital currency under the original Bitcoin Cash ticker, BCH.
The announcement is the latest example of a large trading venue deciding similarly. Previously, both Winklevoss twins-founded Gemini and Coinbase have expressed support for the Bitcoin ABC chain over the “Satoshi’s Vision” side of the fork.
Bitcoin ABC Receives Psychologically Important BCH Ticker at OKEx
According to a report in RTT News, the digital currency exchange OKEx has decided to change the ticker listed for Bitcoin ABC to the original Bitcoin Cash one, BCH. Previously, the major trading venue had the recently created crypto coin listed as BCHABC.
Meanwhile, the opposing side of the November 15 hard fork, known as Bitcoin Satoshi’s Vision, has also been relisted. Before today’s announcement, the exchange referred to this newly created coin as BCHSV. It will now use the simpler ticket, BSV.
In addition to the relistings, OKEx will be suspending spot trading for either side of the original Bitcoin Cash chain. In a statement reported by RTT News, the company said that the remaining balances of the original BCH would be settled, prior to the removal of the asset from accounts. Spot trading for both the new BCH and BSV is expected to resume two hours after it initially goes offline.
Another Important Battle Lost For Bitcoin SV
As the newly crowned largest exchange on the planet by trading volume, OKEx has great influence over the public perception of different digital currencies. NewsBTC reported earlier today that the Hong Kong-based trading venue is one of only four that has managed to retain more than 100,000 active users.
Additionally, OKEx was one of the most active exchanges for Bitcoin Cash trading. This makes the exchange’s policy towards both sides of the fork all the more important. With such a major cryptocurrency (and Bitcoin Cash) market siding with the opposition, the news of the Bitcoin Cash relistings must be yet another bitter pill to swallow for the controversial Bitcoin SV camp.
To make matters worse, OKEx is just the latest of the major exchanges to announce a similar listing for the Bitcoin ABC side of the November Bitcoin Cash hard fork. In October, just prior to the chain split, US crypto trading giants Coinbase announced that they would be supporting the Bitcoin ABC chain. The reasons cited for this decision: higher hash rate and a longer blockchain.
Similarly, Winklevoss twin-owned Gemini announced earlier this week that it would only be supporting the Bitcoin ABC blockchain. They too will be listing the digital asset under the ticker BCH.

Only 4 Crypto Exchanges Have 100,000+ Active Users

With crypto still being years away from being widely adopted by the mainstream public, most of the market’s activity is driven by speculators and traders seeking to leverage the wild price swings and volatility in order to turn a profit.
However, new research data shows that the actual active users on top cryptocurrency exchanges is extremely low, with only four of the most active exchanges having over 100,000 active users.
Coinbase, Binance, Huobi, and OKEx: Over 100,000 Active Users
According to the November 2018 research report from the Blockchain Transparency Institute, only four of the top crypto exchanges can claim having over 100,000 active daily users.
The four exchanges with over 100,000 active daily users includes – to little surprise – San Francisco-based Coinbase, Changpeng Zhao-led Binance, Hong Kong-based OKEx, and Singapore-based Huobi.
Related Reading | Binance Boss Predicts Crypto Bull Run By Year’s End
Of the four exchanges, Coinbase leads the pack with 422,000 daily active users, with Binance trailing behind in second place with 313,000 daily active users. OKEx and Huobi barely made it over 100,000 daily active users, with 105,000 and 101,000 respectively.
Out of the 68 crypto exchanges included in the Blockchain Transparency Institute’s report, the average daily active users across all exchanges is a mere 27,000 users. On the absolute lowest end of the spectrum, Bisq, Coinrail, Kyber Network don’t even have 1,000 active daily users, topping out at 394, 573, and 874 users.
Coinbase: Highest Active Users, Very Little Transaction Volume
Coinbase coming out on top should be a surprise to no one, as the company has become the most recognizable name in crypto – especially to retail investors that primarily used Coinbase’s iOS app to purchase cryptocurrencies during last year’s bull run. The firm closed 2017 with over $1 billion in revenue, beating expectations by 66%.
What is shocking to see, is how little transaction volume Coinbase users contribute to the overall market volume. Of the four exchanges with over 100,00 active daily users, Coinbase ranks the lowest, with only $189 in transaction volume per user. By comparison, Binance transaction volume sits at $2,137 per user, while OKEx and Huobi’s customer transaction volume are $1,972 and $1,723 respectively.

Coinbase’s average customer transaction volume per user is about 10% of what other major cryptocurrency exchanges see for transaction volume. Bitfinex, which is known for its “whale” market makers, tops the list with the highest transaction volume per user at $3,518.
Due to how little money traders on Coinbase are transacting with, the incredibly popular exchange ranks 9th on the list for the highest 24 hour transaction volume, at $106 million in transactions each day. Binance, which currently wears the crown in terms of transaction volume, boasts nearly ten times that of Coinbase’s, with over $1.028 billion in transaction volume every 24 hours.
It’s worth pointing out that BitMex is notably missing from the data set provided by he Blockchain Transparency Institute, which is currently ranked 2nd – ahead of both Coinbase and Binance – on CoinMarketCap’s top 100 cryptocurrency exchanges by reported volume.

Binance Losses Top Cryptocurrency Exchange Position to OKEX and ZB.Com

Staying on top position of the unceasing volatile crypto market is like a crowning the king of cryptocurrency exchange by trade volume. That crown has been worn by Binance for some time now, however, there comes a shift in a position today on December 11, 2018, as OKEx and ZB.Com bagged first and second position relatively. At present Binance is no longer owns the crown.
OKEx and ZB.com Pushed Binance to Third Place
According to coinmarketcap, OKEX overtakes Binance and stand with a total market cap of $469,552,174. ZB.com which was on the top fifth position as on December 09, 2018 is now shifted to the second spot with volume $467,652,466. Eventually, Binance collapsed down to the third position with total volume $420,097,524 and lost its better portion. However, the shift is followed by Huobi, DigiFinex, CoinBene, Bit-Z, IDAX, HitBTC and DOBI trade.

Though the market is still in a red zone, the volume of ZB.com is quite positive than that of OKEx and Binance.

While OKEx surpasses Binance, it’s not wrong to expect ZB.com jumps up to OKEx since they both are battling with a little difference – the former stand with volume $469,552,174 whereas latter maintained its trading volume with $467,652,466.
Bitcoin is Still the Leading Cryptocurrency
Though major cryptocurrencies are shaky, Bitcoin holds a strong position to be a leader in crypto space. At press time, bitcoin was trading at $3439.30 tumbled again with other major cryptocurrencies including Ripple, Ethereum, Stellar, Tether, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Bitcoin SV, Litecoin and TRON.

Such instabilities are common in the crypto market but it doesn’t stop any platform to still fight for the position. Reports recently revealed that Binance Exchange is launching its own blockchain. It is migrating its native token (Binance BNB) from Etehreum blockchain to its new platform called “Binance Chain’. Binance’s own blockchain will enable entrepreneurs and developers to issue their own tokens.

#Binance is pushing for blockchain adoption and doing many things to help advancement of the industry. E.g. we will have the Binance chain ready in the coming months, on which millions of projects can easily issue tokens. @cz_binance @ForbesAsia #ForbesBlockchain pic.twitter.com/0pc0r1lXd2
