CoinMetrics: Bitcoin trading volumes are not subject to seasonality



Analytical resource conducted a study to find out if there is any connection between the dynamics of Bitcoin trading volumes and the seasons. As a result, experts concluded that the indicators of the first cryptocurrency are not subject to seasonality.

CoinMetrics estimated the data for 2014-2018, however, given the significant difference between the rally and bear market periods over the past five years, it was not possible to detect a clear trend initially.

Then, analysts decided to convert trading volumes into a percentage of the total capitalization of the asset, and found that the average of 2% [green curve] practically does not change from month to month.

Earlier, co-founder Nick Carter proposed to abandon market capitalization as a tool for estimating aggregate wealth in Bitcoin and introduce the concept of “realized capitalization”, which is based on the aggregation of UTXO [exits of unspent transactions] taking into account the price of bitcoin during their last activity.
