More than half of all Bitcoin reported daily trading volumes are fake, according to a Forbes analysis of 157 crypto exchanges and trading platforms which revealed that 51% of all reported trading volume is either fake or non-economic. It estimated that the global daily bitcoin volume for the industry was USD128bn on 14 June which was 51% less than the USD262bn figure reached by taking the sum of self-reported volume from multiple sources. Bitcoin represents about 40% of the USD1tr global crypto market. According to the report, there is no genuine method of calculating accurately Bitcoin daily volume.
