Crypto Exchange Spot Trading Volume Falls After 7-Month High

According to The Block Data Dashboard, cumulative spot trading volume on centralized exchanges dropped significantly in April. This marks the first decrease in seven months.

The data revealed that after soaring to nearly $2.5 trillion in March, spot volumes plunged to $1.6 trillion in April. This decline mirrors observations made by analytics firms like CCData, which also noted a decrease in spot volume for the first time in seven months.

Factors Contributing to the Decline

The drop in spot trading volumes coincided with a notable downturn in the price of bitcoin, which plummeted by approximately $10,000, or 15%, throughout April.

Major exchanges such as Binance, OKX, and Coinbase experienced declines in spot trading activity. Despite this decline, Binance maintained its dominance with $700 billion in spot trading volume.

Historical Context and Trend Analysis

Exchange volumes have been steadily increasing each month since September, reaching their peak in March.

However, April’s volumes closely resembled those of January and February. This indicated a plateau in trading activity after months of continuous growth.

Impact on Bitcoin ETF Trading

Simultaneously, the United States witnessed a decrease in cumulative spot bitcoin ETF trading volume in April compared to March. This downturn in ETF trading volume further underscores the broader trend of decreased trading activity in the crypto market during April.


The decline in spot trading volume on centralized exchanges, coupled with the decrease in bitcoin ETF trading volume, highlights a period of consolidation and decreased market activity in April. Analysts are closely monitoring these trends to assess their implications for the broader cryptocurrency market in the coming months.
