At the moment, Bitcoin core markets are hovering around $12650 (R153667) to $12950. Volume was decent on Saturday, as BTC markets are seeing roughly $116billion (R1.41trillion) in global trade volume while Bitcoin core, Ethereum, and Tether were holding the highest trade volumes yesterday.
The top exchanges swopping the most BTC this weekend include Upbit, Bitfinex, Okex, Bithumb, and Binance. The South Korean exchange Upbit has been trading some notable volumes over the past few weeks and has become one of the largest exchanges worldwide.
Over the past few weeks, the greenback has been the top state-issued currency traded with BTC. However, this week Japan has taken the lead once again, as the yen now captures 36percent of the global trade volume.
This is followed by the greenback (32percent), Tether (12.8percent), the Korean won (7.5percent), and the euro (4.9percent). The most popular traded cryptocurrency paired with BTC on Shapeshift is still Ethereum. The overall market capitalisation of all 1469 digital assets is $635bn, and Bitcoin core markets dominated by 34percent, at the time of writing.
