Binance loses ground among crypto exchanges, except in the US

With the end of the free of charge from costs on the BTC pairs, Binance has seen his market share back off. On the other hand, the hardening of the regulation at United States would affect more Coinbase and not Binance.USin full boom.

A message posted yesterday on Twitter caused a stir. Well known in the crypto community, @cobie suggested that a Interpol red notice targeted the CEO of Binance, CZ. The information has since been denied by the principal concerned.

Binance first affected by the end of zero fees

This trend was already noted last week by Kaiko. The French on-chain data specialist confirms it in its latest Data Debrief. Binance At the end of the first quarter, the company posted a market share in 16% decline.

With a global PDM of 54%, the international firm still remains well ahead of the rest of its competitors despite this. Kaiko puts forward several factors to explain the situation of the leading crypto exchange – but not only of this one.

The banking crisis and ongoing regulatory crackdown have disrupted the structure of the crypto-currency market, leaving uncertain dynamics among the world’s largest exchanges,” the analysts suggest.

In a global market characterized by a strong uncertainty”, Kaiko nevertheless notes that trading activity has exploded in early 2023. However, this momentum could be partly “artificial” or at least nuanced.

Trading volume continued to soar and reached a four-month high in mid-March, holding at consistently high levels as part of a broader market rally.”

However, volumes began to fall sharply after Binance ended its zero fee program, the on-chain data further notes. The policy helped support activity. Or even put it on life support?
