Tripled Monthly Volumes for OKX, Binance, and Bybit

A recent report has highlighted a significant uptick in trading volumes on global centralized cryptocurrency exchanges (CEXs), particularly notable since late last year. According to data extracted from the Bybit Institutional Report 2024, numerous CEXs have witnessed a remarkable surge in their monthly trading volumes from October 2023 to March 2024.

CEXs Experience Substantial Growth in Trading Volumes

The Bybit Institutional Report 2024 reveals substantial growth in trading volumes across various centralized cryptocurrency exchanges. Notably, OKX saw a surge of 278% in its 30-day volumes since October 2023, closely followed by Binance with a remarkable 239% increase. Bybit exchange also emerged as one of the fastest-growing platforms, registering a significant growth rate of 264%. These figures outpaced the industry’s average growth rate of 255%, as confirmed by a spokesperson for Bybit.

Market Dynamics and Future Trends

The surge in trading volumes on CEXs can be attributed to the price rallies of leading cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH), particularly following the approvals of spot Bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs) in the U.S. Bybit representatives emphasized the comparison of 30-day volumes to mitigate daily volume fluctuations, providing a clearer picture of volume growth and market share dynamics among CEXs.

Despite OKX surpassing Binance in growth speed during the analyzed period, Binance remains the dominant force in the cryptocurrency exchange landscape, commanding at least 58% of the total spot trading volume. Bybit, positioned as the second-largest exchange by market share, holds approximately 9.6% of the market as of March 2023, while rival OKX accounts for around 9% of total crypto trading volumes, according to Bybit’s data.

Furthermore, while the growth trend of CEXs is noteworthy, it has not surpassed the growth rate of decentralized exchanges (DEXs). Major DEX Uniswap v3, for instance, experienced a staggering 320% increase in volumes. Additionally, derivatives CEXs observed a slight uptick in 30-day trading volumes, with Binance, the largest player in this sector, registering a growth of around 66% over the period.

“The derivatives market for CEXs is almost entirely dominated by Binance, OKX, and Bybit,” the report concludes, underscoring the continued evolution and diversification within the cryptocurrency trading landscape.
