The spot volume dominance of Binance is at 55.1%, while derivatives volume dominance is at 54.4%. The closest competitor is the Upbit exchange, with 6.1% spot trading volume dominance. In the derivates segment, the OKX exchange comes closest with a trading volume dominance of 14.1%.
The platform announced zero fees on trading 13 Bitcoin spot pairs to celebrate its five-year anniversary.
Bitcoin (BTC) makes a major chunk of the trade volume of the entire crypto market. Thus, the zero fees on BTC trading must be significantly contributing to the overall dominance of spot trading volume. Furthermore, the traders that are lured towards the exchange to trade BTC might also consider trading altcoins for the sake of convenience and easy manageability of funds.
The community believes that the exchange is utilizing bear markets to gain more market share because they can afford it by using 0 fees, while competitors can’t.
Bitcoin accumulation by whales
According to the CEO of CryptoQuant, whales are accumulating BTC on Binance. Along with the increase in spot trading volume dominance, more than 48,000 BTC were withdrawn from the exchanges last week. Do such activities indicate the bottom for crypto markets?
