Analysis of crypto traded volumes indicates a bleak trend; down 80% across the market

Quick Take

  • Volume on exchanges is a good indicator of the health of the space, but faking volume skews the numbers
  • By only tracking the volume of exchanges known to not fake the majority of volume, we get a good proxy for volume of the whole sector
  • The volume is now as low as it’s been since July 2017; with no sign of reversing in sight
  •  Traded volume is a lagging indicator of price; as the price increases, more people start trading and volume increases
