Bitcoin’s (BTC) Trading Volume Skyrockets by an Astonishing 2,834% in Q2 2023, Reports DappRadar
In a momentous development, the trading volume of Bitcoin (BTC) has witnessed an explosive surge of a staggering 2,834% during the second quarter of 2023, as revealed by the renowned blockchain intelligence platform, DappRadar. According to their latest quarterly report, Bitcoin’s trading volume experienced a remarkable rise from $7.18 million in Q1 to a whopping $210.7 million in Q2.
It’s worth noting that Bitcoin ordinals play a significant role in this surge, allowing users to attach digital assets like images and videos to individual satoshis, the smallest unit of BTC. This enables the creation of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) on Bitcoin’s network, capturing the attention and interest of both seasoned traders and newcomers alike.
Elaborating on this phenomenon, DappRadar explains, “The hype was also reflected in the all-time trades and unique traders, reaching 554,215 and 150,969 respectively. These figures underscore the platform’s expanding reach and the growing interest among new traders in this digital asset.”
Furthermore, DappRadar’s quarterly report highlights a 7.97% quarter-on-quarter increase in the number of daily unique active wallets interacting with decentralized applications (DApps) on-chain. This rise in active engagement is seen as an encouraging sign of market recovery despite the regulatory challenges faced by the digital asset landscape.
According to the analytics firm, the gaming sector continues to dominate the DApp landscape, commanding a 37% market share. Decentralized finance (DeFi) follows closely behind, experiencing a resurgence and soaring in dominance from 23% to 32%, driven by the memecoin hype and the surge of L2 airdrop hunters. Meanwhile, the Social category is gradually gaining ground, contributing 13% to the market, marking a 1% increase from the previous quarter. In contrast, the NFT sector appears to be facing a slowdown in its growth trajectory, with a dominance of 7%, a figure reminiscent of its Q4 2022 levels.
Overall, the report underscores the dynamic nature of the cryptocurrency market, with Bitcoin’s exceptional surge in trading volume acting as a testament to its enduring popularity and the evolving trends within the broader digital asset landscape.
