Binance Registers Record Volumes
Bitcoin was traded around $4,100 when the digital asset moved up and surpassed $5,000 for a brief period of time. After it, the virtual currency dropped down to $4,900. Currently, each BTC can be purchased for $4,980 and it has a market capitalization of $87.76 billion.
At the same time, Binance, one of the largest digital platforms in the market, has registered record high trading volumes on April 2.
This shows that there was a general interest in purchasing Bitcoin as soon as it ended its bear market that started back in January 2017. Other virtual currencies such as Ethereum (ETH) have also registered all-time high volumes on Binance.
