In November, trading volume on the leading spot platforms monitored by ForkLog surged 22% to $689 billion despite the collapse of FTX structures. This is stated in the monthly analytical report of the magazine.
Of the total $495 billion (70%) came from Binance, which was the main beneficiary of the collapse of FTX International. Coinbase and Kraken ($61 billion and $23 billion, respectively) also improved their positions, as the US branch of the Sam Bankman-Fried exchange also closed, and local users cannot work with unregulated platforms.
