Some interesting statistics about cryptocurrency trading around the world.

Global Market Capitalization. As of my last knowledge update in September 2023, the total market capitalization of cryptocurrencies was once over $2 trillion. This value represents the combined market value of all cryptocurrencies in circulation.

Asia has the largest number of crypto users globally, with 160 million users
Aside from Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), and Tether. The top-performing exchange native tokens are Bitget BGB, Okx token, and BNB. There are over 20,000 cryptocurrencies in circulation, and approximately 200,000 Bitcoin transactions occur daily as of September 2023.

Bitcoin Dominance. Bitcoin has traditionally held the largest market share among cryptocurrencies. As of September 2023, Bitcoin's dominance ratio was around 40-50%, meaning it accounted for about 40-50% of the total cryptocurrency market capitalization.

Trading Volume Cryptocurrency. trading volumes can be substantial. On popular exchanges like Bitget Binance and a few others, daily trading volumes can reach billions or even tens of billions of dollars. These volumes fluctuate depending on market conditions, news events, and investor sentiment.

Geographical Distribution. Cryptocurrency trading is global, with participation from various regions. As of September 2023, countries such as the United States, South Korea, Japan, China, and several European nations were known for their significant cryptocurrency trading activities.

Regulatory Landscape. Regulatory approaches to cryptocurrencies vary across countries. Some nations have embraced cryptocurrencies and established regulatory frameworks to govern their use and trading, while others have taken more cautious or restrictive approaches. The regulatory landscape continues to evolve as governments assess and update their policies.

Retail vs. Institutional Trading. Cryptocurrency trading involves participation from both retail investors (individuals) and institutional investors (such as hedge funds, asset managers, and corporations). Over time, institutional involvement has increased, with some traditional financial institutions offering cryptocurrency trading services to their clients.

Derivatives and Futures. The cryptocurrency derivatives market has grown significantly. Exchanges like Bitget now offer various derivatives products, including futures contracts, Copy trading, options, and swaps. These products allow traders to speculate on the price movements of cryptocurrencies without owning the underlying assets.

Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs). Decentralized exchanges have gained popularity, allowing individuals to trade cryptocurrencies directly from their wallets without the need for intermediaries. DEXs operate on blockchain networks and offer enhanced privacy and control over funds.

Stablecoins The use of stablecoins, cryptocurrencies pegged to the value of traditional fiat currencies, has increased. Stablecoins aim to provide price stability and serve as a bridge between cryptocurrencies and traditional financial systems.

DeFi (Decentralized Finance). The rise of decentralized finance has introduced new trading opportunities and platforms. DeFi protocols allow users to lend, borrow, trade, and earn interest on cryptocurrencies in a decentralized manner, without relying on traditional financial intermediaries.

Interesting info here; it corroborates the info on other crypto media. Overall, it's worthy to note that there's been improvement in acceptability of crypto and adoption. Also, people are beginning to realize that crypto investment and trading can actually be used as a hedge against economic inflation globally. 

There's also the fact that BTC might not be the spotlight of crypto HODL and trading these days with BGB and OP making some good gains in the last 3 quarters.

One Interesting Fact about Crypto (Bitcoin) is A man in Florida paid 10,000 bitcoins for two Papa John’s pizzas on May 22, 2010. This was the first Bitcoin payment for goods, and it was worth around $40 at the time. This is widely acknowledged as the first commercial bitcoin transaction. You’d be a #bitcoin millionaire if you had that many bitcoins in September 2022. 10,000 bitcoins are worth more than $190 million in the market.

To be honest, the crypto landscape is the fastest evolving landscape in recent human existence with lots of positives and negatives. The introduction of regulation is one that is much needed given the recent hack and scam in the world of crypto ranging from the immemorable Terra Luna crash, FTX saga, 3AC bankruptcy and Voyager insolvency crisis. It's therefore imperative for government to find a way to protect investors assets on exchanges. For me, regulation is a welcome development and should be embraced by all exchanges as already accepted by coinbase and Bitget amongst others.

    • WTI Elliott wave analysis  Function - Counter-trend  Mode - Corrective  Structure - Impulse for wave 1 Position - Wave 1 Direction - Wave 1 is still in play Details - Price could currently be in the blue wave ‘iv’ bounce or 2nd sub-wave of blue wave ‘iii’. The two scenarios support an extension lower for as much as the price remains below 81.07. Since April 2024, the West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude oil market has been descending into an impulse wave. This indicates that the recovery from the December 2023 low has likely concluded, and prices may extend lower, potentially falling below that previous low in the coming weeks. The long-term outlook for WTI remains bearish. With medium-term price movements now aligning with this outlook, it might be prudent for buyers to reconsider their positions and switch sides on this commodity.   Analyzing the daily chart, the blue wave X of the primary degree reached its peak at 95 in September 2023. Prior to this, the preceding blue wave W commenced at 130.9 in March 2022 and concluded with a double zigzag structure at 64.56 in March 2023. From the peak at 95, we have been tracking the blue wave Y, which subdivides into an (A)-(B)-(C) zigzag pattern. The high of 87.63 confirmed wave (B), and the current decline is part of wave (C). The impulse wave declining from 87.63 can be identified as wave 1 of (C). This decline has been further detailed on the H4 chart.   On the H4 chart, the price action is currently undergoing an upward correction within blue wave iv of 1. If the price remains below 81.07, we can anticipate further selling pressure, which would complete blue wave v of 1 before a more significant corrective bounce in wave 2 begins. However, if the ongoing minor recovery surpasses 81.07, it would suggest that wave 1 has already concluded, and the price is now in wave 2. The ultimate invalidation point for this analysis is at 87.63; as long as prices remain below this level, sellers should maintain control in the medium term.   To summarize, the WTI crude oil market's recent price movements suggest a continuation of the downtrend initiated in April 2024. The completion of the recovery phase from the December 2023 low, coupled with the formation of an impulse wave, points towards further downside potential. Traders should closely monitor the key levels of 81.07 and 87.63 to confirm the ongoing wave structure and make informed trading decisions. As long as the price stays below 87.63, the bearish outlook remains valid, and sellers are likely to dominate in the medium term.

    • Recently, the comments of the Indian billionaire and Kotak Bank CEO Uday Kotak have thrust the status of the US dollar back into the spotlight. Kotak referred to the dollar as the "biggest financial terrorist of the world," a statement that has sparked widespread controversy. At the same time, the Asia-Pacific markets have experienced some unusual stock fluctuations, with the significant stock of Sony drop drawing particular attention. Ryan Anderson will delve into the implications of the remarks of Kotak, explore the stability of the status of the dollar, and examine its impact on the stock market. Questioning Dollar Hegemony The public description of Kotak on the dollar as a "financial terrorist" has, despite his subsequent attempts to soften the statement, raised questions about dollar hegemony. The position of the dollar as the the primary reserve currency of the world has long been considered a cornerstone of the financial system. However, with shifts in the global economic landscape and adjustments in international political relationships, some countries and individuals have begun to question the dominance of the dollar. Ryan Anderson believes that dollar hegemony gives the United States asymmetric power and advantages, even amounting to financial bullying. The comments of Kotak represent dissatisfaction and doubt about dollar hegemony, reflecting the attention and concern of the international community regarding the status of the dollar. Stability of the Status of the Dollar Ryan Anderson points out that despite the doubts surrounding dollar hegemony, there is currently no clear alternative currency, and the dollar still dominates the global financial system. The position of dollar as the reserve currency of the world has historical and institutional advantages, with the position of the United States in the global economic and financial systems being unshakable. Additionally, the liquidity and stability of the dollar are crucial reasons for its stable status. While some countries and regions are making efforts to promote a diversified reserve currency system, replacing the dollar remains fraught with difficulties and challenges. The Stock Fluctuations of Sony Aside from the questions about dollar hegemony, the unusual stock fluctuations of Sony have also garnered widespread market attention. As one of the blue-chip stocks of Japan, the stock movements of Sony have impacted the entire Japanese stock market and even spread to other Asia-Pacific regions. The rapid decline in the stock price of Sony may be influenced by various factors, including market sentiment, internal company issues, and industry competition. Although the stock volatility of Sony may be a short-term phenomenon, Ryan Anderson advises investors to remain vigilant, adjust their investment strategies promptly, and mitigate investment risks. Despite the remarks of Kotak sparking discussions about the status of the dollar, the dollar still firmly holds its dominant position in the global financial system. Ryan Anderson suggests that investors approach market volatility cautiously, adjust their strategies promptly, and stay attuned to changes in global economic and political dynamics to reduce investment risks. Additionally, investors should remain rational and calm during stock market fluctuations, avoiding excessive influence from market sentiment. Rational investing and long-term holding are key to achieving stable returns.
