˅ Executive Summary


Introduction

  1. Regional digital asset exchanges are emerging to dominate respective domestic markets
  2. Unlike most reports that examine the top global digital asset exchanges, especially the ones that service US citizens, this report analyzes the rise of regional exchanges from a non-US centric perspective

Methodology of Variables

  1. Variables include name of region, number of exchanges, average web traffic, average liquidity, average estimated daily volume, average taker fees, average maker fees, average estimated daily trading revenue, average funding, average inception date
  2. The average daily estimated volume variable utilized in this report is unique in that the variable discounts reported daily volumes by a composite score of the liquidity and web traffic variables; in this way, we believe we are more accurately estimating volume rather than purely using reported daily volume numbers since those volumes are often inflated
