The U.S. crypto market continues to lose its global dominance amid its fight for regulatory clarity with regulators, including the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). As per the latest crypto exchange report by crypto research firm TokenInsight, the U.S.-licensed crypto exchanges lost market share in 2023 Q1, with Coinbase accounting for 1.31%, Kraken 0.60%, and Binance.US 0.37%.
Repercussions of SEC Action on US Crypto Exchanges
According to the Crypto Exchange Report 2023 Q1, the top 15 exchanges recorded a total volume of $10.8 trillion, a 40% increase as compared to 2022 Q4. The crypto market recovered this year, with Bitcoin price skyrocketing over 70%.
Binance, OKX, Bybit, Bitget, MEXC, Gate, KuCoin, Upbit, Coinbase, and Huobi were the top 10 crypto exchanges in terms of trading volume. US-based crypto exchanges Coinbase, Kraken, and Binance.US lost major market share in the 2023 Q1.
Earlier, Coingecko also reported a continuous decline in trading volume on Coinbase from 7% in January to 5% in March. Meanwhile, trading volume on crypto exchanges outside the U.S. rising due to the regulatory crackdown against crypto in the US. The U.S. House Financial Services Committee is currently investigating potential Operation Choke Point-type action by agencies such as the Fed, FDIC, and OCC to de-bank the crypto market.
Crypto spot trading volume jumped 18.1% to $2.8 trillion in Q1, with DEXs outpacing CEXs due to increased scrutiny over centralized exchanges following the collapse of FTX. Interestingly, crypto exchanges in the U.S. such as Coinbase have failed to capitalize on the FTX fallout, with trading volumes actually dropping.
