Data collected by The Block Research shows that spot trading volumes on legitimate exchanges hit a new all-time high for April.
The $1.58 trillion figure represents a 49% increase compared to March’s $1.06 trillion.
Key market events in April include bitcoin’s surpassing of a new all-time high above $60,000 as well as a mid-month, weekend futures liquidation event as the price briefly plunged below $52,000. That event triggered a record number of crypto futures liquidations, as previously reported.
At press time, the price of bitcoin is trading at roughly $56,835 on Coinbase.
