Analytical company Diar reported that the average size of commissions in the Bitcoin network has dropped to 2014 values. At the same time, the number of transactions increased to 9 million per month. The last time such activity was observed at the end of 2017.
It is noteworthy that the trading volume on the largest stock exchanges decreased to 40%. A similar decline is observed in decentralized sites. According to Diar experts, this suggests that cryptocurrency has become more often used as a means of payment, rather than a speculative asset.
Earlier, Diar analysts reported that in 2018, the Bitcoin network processed transactions for $ 3.2 trillion. Experts point out that this proves the effectiveness of cryptocurrency in cross-border payments.
