Bitcoin Spot Trading Volume Soars To New 2022 Highs

Data shows the Bitcoin spot trading volume has shot up recently, and has created a new high for the year 2022 so far.

Bitcoin Spot Trading Volume Observes Sharp Uptrend

As per the latest weekly report from Arcane Research, the 7-day average BTC volume has now hit a new yearly high of around $11.4 billion.

The “spot trading volume” is an indicator that measures the total amount of Bitcoin being transacted on spot exchanges on any given day.

When the value of this metric is high, it means a large number of coins are observing movement in the spot markets. Such a trend shows investors are active at the moment.

On the other hand, low values of the indicator suggest there isn’t much activity happening on exchanges right now. This kind of trend may be a sign that investor interest around the crypto is low currently.

Now, here is a chart that shows the trend in the 7-day moving average Bitcoin spot trading volume over the past year:

As you can see in the above graph, the Bitcoin spot trading volume has seen a sharp spike in its value recently.

The value of the indicator is now about $11.4 billion, the highest seen in not just this part of 2022 so far, but also in general over the last twelve months.

The chart also shows the individual contribution to the total daily spot volumes that’s coming from the crypto exchange Binance.

It looks like the exchange is seeing significantly more volume than the entire rest of the market combined, and has been doing so since a while. The reason behind this is the fee removal on certain BTC trading pairs that the platform employed a while back.

This encouraged traders who want to use high volume trading strategies to go to Binance, and hence the exchange’s dominance jumped up.

After this latest surge, Binance’s share of the 7-day average total daily Bitcoin spot trading volume has become around 87%.

BTC Price

At the time of writing, Bitcoin’s price floats around $20.3k, up 8% in the last seven days. Over the past month, the crypto has lost 17% in value.
