Binance’s Market Share Continues to Decline, According to CCData Report
In its latest report released on Thursday (05), research company CCData highlighted that Binance’s market share has decreased for the seventh consecutive month.
The report revealed that spot trading volumes on Binance in September dropped by 36.8%, reaching a total of $115 billion. This marks the lowest monthly spot volumes for the exchange since October 2020.
CCData also noted that this decline represents the third consecutive decrease in volumes since June 2023. As a result, Binance’s market share among spot crypto exchanges is currently at 34.3%, the lowest percentage since June 2022.
The decrease in volumes was further exacerbated by the suspension of the zero-fee trading promotion for BTC-TUSD pairs last month, according to the report.
Meanwhile, derivatives trading volumes on Binance also experienced a decline of 20.8%, reaching $686 billion. This represents the lowest monthly volumes for the exchange since December 2020.

However, OKX, Bybit, and Bitget have capitalized on Binance’s decline, increasing their market shares to 19.6%, 13.6%, and 9.43%, respectively.
