VALLETTA, Malta, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In the report "Exchange Review for September 2019" recently released by CryptoCompare, a cryptocurrency market data provider, OKEx is the top crypto exchange in terms of derivatives monthly volume.
Although OKEx saw an astonishing derivatives total volume of US$90.34B in September, it is still down by 14.9% when compared to August (see figure 20).
But OKEx is not the only exchange that saw a decline in performance, other exchanges' volumes were also down by 1-19%, as the CEO of OKEx, Jay Hao, commented on Twitter:
"It's been a tough month for us all. But let's face it. Pain is good. It can't be rainbows and sunshine every day. The overall crypto market simply reflects one thing - how we all perform. And now we need to do better."
It is also worth highlighting that OKEx represented the majority of daily derivatives volumes trading at US$3B per day (33.7% market share).
By offering both futures contracts and perpetual swaps for 9 different cryptocurrencies, OKEx stayed ahead of the competitors in the market in terms of total derivatives volume.
Seeing the result (figure 21), the CEO of OKEx, Jay Hao, left a hint on Twitter that a new derivative will be launched in 2019:
"Still, we're proud to have stayed at the top in derivatives trading. And we will keep innovating - a new derivatives product will be launched by the end of this year!"
