Bitcoin spot trading volume pushes price trend

IntoTheBlock’s recent post sheds light on the recent price uptrends in Bitcoin over the past few days. Data analyzed by AMBCrypto showed that price gains were primarily driven by increased trading activities, resulting in higher trading volumes.

It’s worth noting that the contribution from derivative trading was relatively minimal.¬†

As per the observed chart, the ratio of Bitcoin’s open interest in perpetual swaps relative to its market capitalization (OI/MC) remains close to its lowest levels in the past year.

This indicates that the trading volume affecting the price trends stemmed from spot trading. This signifies that the price trend was influenced by regular demand rather than leveraged trading in derivatives.

Open interest and spot volume display similar value

The Bitcoin volume chart on Santiment and the Open Interest chart on Coinglass are currently displaying similar values.

At the time of writing, the volume chart on Santiment indicated a figure of approximately $15.2 billion.
