Crypto Compare released their monthly report recently. The report focuses on development and adoption of various product types by analyzing AUMs, trading volume and price performance.

April was a difficult month for the crypto industry with the flagship tokens largely faltering. Data up to 27 April says that BTC fell by 16.3% and ETH dropped around 14.4%. With uncertainty surrounding the Fed and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, the digital assets market took the worst hit.

There was a further drop in trading volume, which has dropped for the sixth successive month. The average daily trading volumes fell by 16.3% $244 million this month. The report also says,

“In total, volumes have fallen 71.0% since October 2021 ($841 million) and 83.8% since the all-time high reached in January 2021 ($1.51 trillion).”
