Coinbase Sees 52% Decline in Spot Trading Volume Compared to 2022: Report

The spot trading volume of Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency exchanges in the United States, has experienced a significant decline, reflecting changing trends in crypto trading.

According to analysis from digital asset data provider CCData, as reported by Bloomberg on October 11, Coinbase recorded approximately $76 billion in spot trading volume. This marks a 52% drop in spot trading volume for Q3 2023 when compared to its quarterly record in the third quarter of 2022.

The report notes that these figures are the lowest they’ve been since before Coinbase’s listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market in 2021, and they come months after the peak of cryptocurrency prices.

Despite the decline in spot trading volume, the report highlights that Coinbase has gained market share in the last quarter, as rival crypto exchange Binance faced increased regulatory scrutiny.

On October 6, Binance’s spot market share dropped for the seventh consecutive month, with competitors like Coinbase, Bybit, and DigiFinex reportedly benefiting from the trading volume that was lost.

Although trading volumes and market shares have decreased for some crypto exchanges, certain trading platforms have seen success in terms of website traffic. While Binance and Coinbase experienced sharp declines in traffic, data from September 18 showed notable increases in web traffic year-to-date (YTD) for exchanges such as OKX, HTX (formerly Huobi), Gate.io, CoinW, XT.com, and Bitmart. HTX’s web traffic saw a 200% increase, while Gate.io and CoinW saw YTD traffic surges of 143% and 66%, respectively.
