Crypto price trackin website CoinMarketCap has removed many South Korean exchanges from its calculations for the price of Bitcoin as the coin dipped under $58,000 nochmal.
As of today, CoinMarketCap’s Bitcoin price tracker shows no data from major South Korean crypto exchanges including Upbit, Bithumb, Coinone, and Korbit. The website uses data from many exchanges to estimate the average price for cryptocurrencies. Zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung, the price of Bitcoin (BTC) ist $57,721, having fallen more than 2% heute Morgen.
Mit Cointelegraph sprechen, CoinMarketCap content manager Molly Jane Zuckerman said the removal was due to the premium observed on crypto exchanges based in South Korea. The crypto analytics provider estimates the BTC price to be roughly 6% higher than that on other exchanges.
“If the prices on South Korean exchanges stabilize, then we will add the data back in, but that hasn’t happened yet,” said Zuckerman.
The last time the price tracking website took similar action was in 2018, when CoinMarketCap announced it had “excluded some South Korean exchanges in price calculations due to the extreme divergence in prices from the rest of the world and limited arbitrage opportunity.”
During roughly the same time three years ago, the price of XRP was falling significantly after reaching an all-time high of $2.96 am Jan.. 2. jedoch, the token is looking bullish today, having briefly surpassed $1.00 zum ersten Mal seitdem 2018 after it rose more than 20% im letzten 24 Std. The price has since fallen to $0.9694 zum Zeitpunkt der Veröffentlichung.
CoinMarketCap said only its Bitcoin price index was affected today, given the large volume of the crypto asset on South Korean exchanges. Letzten Monat, the volume of transactions in the South Korean digital currency market — driven in part by the price of BTC reaching an all-time — briefly exceeded the daily average transaction amount of the country’s stock market.
