Bitcoin is trying to break the strong resistance zone of $46,800 and is now trading at $46,158. Meanwhile, the second-largest cryptocurrency, Ethereum, is trading close to $3,230.
Let’s find out some interesting crypto news stories for the day.
1 – Ethereum Trading Volume Flipped Bitcoin on Coinbase
Coinbase has revealed that Ethereum surpassed Bitcoin trading volume for the first time on its platform. As per Coinbase’s second-quarter report, Bitcoin trading volumes dropped sharply from 39% to 24%. Meanwhile, volumes for other crypto assets increased from 40% to 50%.
In addition, Coinbase said that ETH trading volume increased 23% in the second quarter. Interestingly, this is the first in the exchange’s nine-year history that ETH trading volume flipped BTC. Coinbase stated that the surging interest in decentralized finance (DeFi) and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) is fueling the volume of Ethereum trading. Additionally, Ethereum 2.0 staking also spurred its trading on the platform.
