New data shows that United States traders are the most active across major crypto exchanges, according to a Feb. 4 tweet from data analytics firm DataLight.
The U.S. has the highest distribution of traders — 60 percent — on major crypto exchange
and wallet Coinbase, while on Binance, Bittrex and Poloniex, U.S. traders make up 24, 27 and 28 percent of total crypto traders respectively.
American traders are less represented on Hong Kong-based crypto exchange Bitfinex, at 10 percent of traders on the exchange, while German traders make up 13 percent.
Earlier this year, Bittrex launched an over-the-counter (OTC) trading desk that offers around 200 crypto assets. OTC trading has become extremely popular among institutional investors looking to trade in large volumes, as previously reported by Cointelegraph.
