South Korean Crypto Transactions Command an Average of $7 Billion per Day on Domestic Exchanges

An investigation unveiled a growing fever among crypto traders in South Korea, who actively transact cryptocurrencies every day. Local media outlets are returning to adopt the term “crypto fever” as the recent billion-dollar figures confirm such a trend.
Figures Are Now Higher Than 2018
According to the report made by Dong-A, a major South Korean newspaper, domestic crypto investors transacted around $7 billion per day in the period ranging from January 1 to February 25, 2021.
Kim Byeong-wook, a parliamentary member of the Democratic Party, compiled the numbers by extracting data from Bithumb, Upbit, Korbit, and Coinone, the most prominent local crypto exchanges.
Per the study, 42% of the average volume was traded on the KOSPI stock exchange. The newspaper pointed out that this is the first time that investors’ statistics of the four major South Korean crypto exchanges see the light.
In the same period, the study showed that users of the four exchanges transacted approximately $395 billion. Such a number is well above the 2020 figure of $315.5 billion. Dong-A detailed that South Koreans aged 20-39 are the ones who have been allocating thousands of dollars recently on crypto investments.
