Bitcoin’s weekly trading volume rises sharply, and then falls sharply

According to the latest weekly report from Arken Research, BTC spot volume has recently dropped by about 58.7% in just nine days.

“Trading volume” is an indicator that measures the total amount of bitcoin traded on the network at the moment.

When the value of this metric increases, it means that the number of coins changing hands in the chain is currently increasing.

This kind of trend may show that traders are finding crypto attractive at the moment because the network is becoming more active.

On the other hand, the declining volume indicates that the blockchain is becoming more dormant. Such a trend could be a sign that investors are losing interest in the currency.

As you can see in the graph above, the trading volume of Bitcoin has risen sharply and reached close to last year’s highest price just a few weeks ago.

As of this Monday, spot trading volume has already dropped to just 3. 3.8 billion, down 58.7% in just nine days.

The reason behind the recent rise was the decline in the price of Bitcoin. A large number of traders usually take their steps during such a big change in prices.

The report noted that the current BTC market uncertainty could make investors more cautious.

This has led to fewer transactions in their chains, which has led to a sharp drop in trading volume.
