CryptoCompare, the global leader in digital asset data, has released its November 2019 Exchange Review which provides analysis of key developments in the cryptocurrency exchange-traded market.
Charles Hayter, co-founder and CEO of CryptoCompare, said,
“2019 has seen considerable focus across the digital asset industry on producing reliable data on the exchange-traded market, in order to tackle the problem of ‘fake’ volumes. CryptoCompare’s high quality, granular analysis, ranking the global exchanges, has brought greater transparency to the crypto asset class, enabling market participants to make better decisions.”
CryptoCompare’s Exchange Review evaluates the consistency and quality of cryptocurrency exchange data, assessing exchanges on the basis of spot 24-hour volume and pricing data. The review covers exchange rankings by volume; predominant fee types; derivatives data; derivative products; fiat, Bitcoin and stablecoin volumes. It also analyzes how volumes have developed for the top trans-fee mining and decentralized exchanges.
Volume from top-tier exchanges (AA-B) decreased 6.9% while volume from low-tier exchanges (C-F) increased 3.7%. Aggregate top-tier exchange volume still only represents 31.4% of the total market.
P2PB2B remained the top fiat exchange by total volume in November at $30.98 billion (up 23.78% since October). This was followed by Coinsbit and Bithumb at $16.37 billion (up 102.1%) and $7.42 billion (up 15.24%) respectively.
The CME still dominates regulated Bitcoin derivatives trading, with total volumes up 35.2% since October at $4.22 billion. Volumes in the CME Bitcoin futures increased from $3.12 billion in October to $4.22 billion in November. Meanwhile, Grayscale’s Bitcoin trust product (GBTC) saw volumes decrease 17.5% in November, with $490.71 million traded.
OKEx was the top derivatives exchange in November, trading a total of $91.5 billion USD (down 0.4% from October), followed by Huobi at $89.52 billion (up 10.4% since October’s volumes).
The most highly traded derivatives product by total monthly volume was Huobi’s Quarterly BTC Future (Huobi_BTC191227) at $46.1 billion, followed by BitMEX’s BTC perpetual future at $37.9 billion and Binance’s BTC perpetual future at $32.3 billion.
