Trading volume and bullish Bitcoin
The high trading volume shown by the Bitcoin market currently coincides with the rise in the price of the cryptocurrency. In the last week, the value of Bitcoin grew by 13%, reaching $57,600 per unit and getting closer to its all-time high seen in the month of April, when it exceeded $64,000 per BTC.
CryptoParrot points out that although Bitcoin is a very different asset class than stocks, its appreciation makes it an increasingly important investment asset.
The portal stressed that the high daily trading volume of this cryptocurrency is a sign of its importance as a new investment asset class, which is offering tough competition to the shares of these companies, despite being well below them. in terms of market capitalization. For example, compared to Apple, Bitcoin has barely half the market capitalization of the American technology giant.
CryptoParrot also highlighted that the high trading volume seen in Bitcoin may be due to the fact that it is an asset that is traded without restrictions, 24/7, while the opposite is true for stocks. Another point that the platform pointed out is that shares are susceptible to rising interest rates, something that is not attractive to investors.
