Binance Research’s Latest Report Found Greater Capital Efficiency Owing to Margin Trading

The latest Global Markets report from Binance Research focused on the latest crypto trends over the past month, including the crypto market’s notable swoon and the growth of Binance Futures, with an analysis  of the impact of margin trading on the liquidity of cryptoassets.

Binance Research, the market research and analysis arm of Binance, released its November 2019 edition of the Global Markets report series covering the most notable trends in the crypto markets. The report noted that the downward price action affected Bitcoin and altcoin markets, with few exceptions by certain altcoins, while Binance Futures continued its meteoric growth, which will likely be sustained with the recent addition of ETH/USDT, its second perpetual contract.

Every month, Binance Research’s Global Markets report provides a summary of the significant numbers for the major cryptocurrencies based on their trading activity on Binance, as well as reviewing Bitcoin trading and market dominance, Binance DEX trading markets, derivatives market activity on Binance Futures, borrowing and lending markets on the Binance ecosystem, and more. 

The latest report features a quick case study on the addition of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) to Binance margin trading. The Binance Research team noted, “Margin trading could potentially lead to greater efficiency in how resources are allocated within the exchange, as ‘bearish individuals’ are now able to build short positions by borrowing assets from individuals that are long on the asset.”

The Binance Research Global Markets report also features commentary from Binance Trading, one of the world’s most liquid OTC desks for cryptocurrencies and digital assets. Binance Trading noted that amid the market swoon, many of the projects, which raised funds on Binance Launchpad, displayed sharp price increases. 

“We decided to take a look at taker buy-sell ratio data from our exchange for Matic Network (MATIC), Fetch.Ai (FET), Elrond (ERD), Band Protocol (BAND), and Harmony (ONE) to see if certain regions may have spurred the rallies but found little to no correlation,” according to Binance Trading.
