By | April 29, 2022


Negative crypto market sentiment has seen Polkadot trading volume fall steeply in the first quarter of the year. 

Polkadot, like many cryptocurrencies, attracted relatively lower investor interest in the first quarter this year compared to the same period in 2021. 

Polkadot trading volume during the first quarter of this year was approximately $108.17 billion, according to Be[In]Crypto Research. 

There was a 63% fall in trading volume between Jan and March of 2021, or $295.31 billion.

What caused the decline in Polkadot? 

The selling pressure that took over the market in Dec came after major coins reached all-time highs in Nov.

Out of the 10 biggest markets of Polkadot, nine of them saw DOT paired against stablecoins such as United States Dollar Tether (USDT), and Binance United States Dollar (BUSD). Stablecoin pairings are a sign of a bearish market.
