While Bitcoin has recorded significant growth in valuation over the past month, the king coin’s ‘trading dominance’ has, however, fallen below 40% on Binance’s platform in January. Leading crypto-exchange platform, Binance recently published its January review and according to the post, the coin registered a trading dominance of 38.17% in the first month of the year. A decline of 2.31% was noted in the figure from December 2019.

Binance defines Bitcoin trading dominance as,

“Bitcoin trading dominance represents the respective volume contribution from Bitcoin trading, with BTC as a base currency, relative to the total spot volume on a platform [e.g., Binance] over a period of time.”

The trading dominance reached its peak in August 2019 when it soared past 45%. The figures, however, started to fall soon after the high. In December, trading dominance was registered to be 40.48%.

Additionally, Bitcoin’s market dominance also decreased from nearly 68% in December 2019 to 65.3%, at press time.
