CoinGecko’s 2023 Q2 Crypto Industry Report provides valuable insights into the cryptocurrency market’s performance and key trends during the second quarter of the year. The report highlights several noteworthy findings that shed light on the industry’s recent developments.
In terms of market performance, Q2 witnessed a relatively modest increase of 0.14% in the total crypto market cap, reaching $1.240 trillion by the end of June. Bitcoin (BTC) experienced a 6.9% gain, surpassing the overall market growth. Meanwhile, Ethereum (ETH) recorded a 6.0% increase, with BTC and ETH prices stabilizing around $30,000 and $1,900, respectively.
The report delves into various aspects of the crypto industry, including decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), and the performance of both centralized exchanges (CEX) and decentralized exchanges (DEX). Key highlights include:
1. BTC’s 6.9% gain: BTC outperformed the overall market cap growth, reaching a yearly high of $30,694 after BlackRock’s spot bitcoin ETF filing. However, the average daily trading volume decreased by 58.7% in Q2.
2. Stablecoin market fluctuations: The total market cap of the top 15 stablecoins decreased by 3.5%, primarily due to the decline in USD Coin (USDC) and Binance USD (BUSD). Tether (USDT) strengthened its market share, and True USD (TUSD) emerged as the largest gainer.
3. ETH staking growth: Total staked ETH increased by 30.3% in Q2, reaching 23.6 million. Lido remained the dominant staking provider, while Kraken’s dominance decreased due to the winding down of its US staking product.
4. NFT trading volume decline: NFT trading volume dropped by 35.0% in Q2, despite the rising popularity of Bitcoin Ordinals. Ethereum remained the leading platform for NFT trading, although Solana experienced a significant decrease in trading volume.
5. Decrease in spot trading volume on centralized exchanges: Spot trading volume on centralized exchanges fell by 43.2%, with Binance’s market share declining to 52%. Bybit and Bitget were the only exchanges in the top 10 to gain volume.
