In the first quarter, the daily average trading volume of the crypto market increased by 30% to reach $77 billion. This growth was driven by market volatility and movements.

The spot trading volume of the crypto market reached $2.8 trillion in the first quarter, experiencing an 18.1% increase. Regulatory scrutiny towards centralized exchanges led to faster growth of DEXs, with DEXs expanding by 33.4% in the quarter, while the growth of CEXs was at 16.9%.
