March was a record-breaking month for the crypto market and exchanges. OKEx, the world’s largest cryptocurrency spot and derivatives exchange, topped the derivatives market in March, according to the Exchange Review March 2020 report by CryptoCompare, the global leader in digital asset data. With month-on-month volume increased to $161 Bn, OKEx has demonstrated steady growth in the past months.
Jay Hao, CEO of OKEx, said:
“The crypto market has been undergoing an unprecedented time, particularly the recent bitcoin slump and the global impact brought by the coronavirus. Given the drastic changes in consumers’ internet browsing behaviors, we observe their investment strategies and portfolio are showing new patterns. Our team has started to investigate and study the new set of data, so as to get prepared for the future. I think exchanges need to re-evaluate the market, and it will be a new stage of the game when the current storm is over.”
Crypto exchanges hit an all-time-high in daily transaction volume of $53 Bn on 12 March 2020, the day when the bitcoin price crashed. According to a tweet of Hao, the trading platform processed approx. 300k orders/sec during the volatile period and the trading service was delivered stably. What’s more, OKEx also claimed to maintain a record of zero clawback throughout the market crash.

We provide spot and derivatives trading, including futures, perpetual swap, and options, of major cryptocurrencies, offering investors great flexibility in formulating their strategies to maximize gains and mitigate risks.
