Derivatives — Crypto’s New Growth Engine

Q2 2020 Trading Volume and Market Concentration of Derivatives Exchanges, Source: TokenInsight

“In the second quarter of 2020, TokenInsight calculated based on 42 exchanges that the trading volume of the cryptocurrency derivatives market was $2.159 trillion, with an increase of 2.57% from the previous quarter and a year-on-year increase of 165.56% from the second quarter of 2019.”

Derivatives market is concentrated on 3 main currencies (BTC, ETH and EOS) and few large exchanges — but this might change

“ZBG is another emerging exchange that has made significant headway, again by offering a helping hand to novice traders, in this case in the form of user education. With 2.5 million site visits a month recording an average session length of 15 minutes, ZBG’s upskilling strategy appears to be paying off. In Q2 2020, ZBG transaction volume increased 11.1 times from the first quarter of 2020.”

“Platform and products, not the details such as handling fees, are the first issues that big customers will consider. The good reputation and complete product functions are the core competitiveness of an exchange.”
