U.S Dominates Bitcoin Liquidity as US Claims the Market

In January I first reported how Bitcoin-ETFs would increase Bitcoin Liquidity and help create a more stable and secure Bitcoin. We also discussed how it would take around 3 months to see the full benefits and impacts of the Bitcoin-ETF.

We’re almost at the half way point and we can already start to see some of those benefits with my first assessment coming true seeing liquidity increase. This has also seen the United States now hold the majority of Bitcoin Liquidity. It’s also now leading to other nations looking at moving into this space to capitalise on the Crypto Currency sector which has now recently reached a USD 3 Trillion Market Cap.

Today we are going to focus on the introduction of Bitcoin Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) in the United States and the landscape of crypto currency trading which has experienced a significant shift. With this change comes a notable surge in liquidity particularly on US-based Centralised Exchange (CEX) signalling a broader transformation in how Bitcoin is perceived and traded globally.

It is anticipated that Coinbase will continue to experience healthy growth as it’s userbase continues to grow despite regulatory uncertainty at this stage. But recent legal cases are likely to path the way forward and created a clear and concise market which will stablise the sector.

Bitcoin-ETF Impacts Thus Far

The launch of Bitcoin ETFs in January has had a profound impact on both the price dynamics and liquidity of Bitcoin. As indicated by recent data, Bitcoin order books are now at their most liquid since October, with the 2% market depth reaching approximately $540 million across 33 centralized exchanges. This surge in liquidity represents a substantial increase of about 30% since the introduction of spot ETFs just a month prior.

One of the key factors contributing to this surge in liquidity is the growing presence of US-based exchanges in facilitating Bitcoin trading. These exchanges have become the epicenter of liquidity for Bitcoin, attracting both institutional and retail investors alike. The comparative ease of trading on US exchanges, coupled with the introduction of ETFs, has made Bitcoin more accessible to a broader audience, thereby enhancing its liquidity profile.

The significance of this liquidity influx extends beyond mere trading volumes. Improved liquidity enhances market efficiency by narrowing spreads and reducing slippage, thereby providing traders with better execution prices and minimizing transaction costs. Moreover, increased liquidity fosters greater price stability, as it becomes easier for market participants to enter and exit positions without significantly impacting prices.

U.S Exchange Growth

The influx of liquidity into US exchanges provides an insight into the growing confidence in the regulatory framework surrounding crypto currency investments in the United States. The approval and subsequent trading of Bitcoin ETFs have provided institutional investors with a regulated avenue to gain exposure to Bitcoin, mitigating some of the concerns regarding custody and compliance that previously hindered widespread adoption.

The impact of Bitcoin ETFs on liquidity is not confined to US shores alone. The reverberations of these developments are felt globally, with investors increasingly gravitating towards US exchanges in search of deeper liquidity pools and regulatory certainty. This shift in liquidity dynamics reflects a broader trend towards consolidation, with US exchanges emerging as dominant players in the crypto currency market.

International Banks Join The Economic Explosion

Beyond exchanges, traditional financial institutions are also embracing the crypto revolution. A notable example is PostFinance, one of Switzerland's leading banks, which recently announced its entrance into crypto currency services. By offering customers the ability to invest in a range of digital assets including Bitcoin and Ethereum. PostFinance is bridging the gap between traditional banking and the burgeoning crypto market.

The entry of established financial institutions into the crypto space not only validates the legitimacy of crypto currencies helping drive mainstream adoption, but also contributes to the overall liquidity ecosystem. By providing custodial services and investment products tailored to digital assets. These institutions are empowering investors to seamlessly integrate crypto currencies into their portfolios while adhering to stringent regulatory standards.

The launch of Bitcoin ETFs in the United States has ushered in a new era of liquidity and confidence in the crypto currency market. The surge in liquidity, particularly on US exchanges reflects a broader trend towards regulatory clarity and institutional adoption. As liquidity continues to flow into the crypto market, Bitcoin's price stability and market resilience are poised to benefit, paving the way for further innovation and growth in the digital asset space.

Bitcoin has risen by almost $10,000 in 20 days, in fact the buyers have returned. I read in your post that Coinbase is growing again, I'd say that's a good thing.
