Pt. 1: The Euro’s Role in Crypto

Historically, the euro has lagged other fiat currencies in usage on crypto platforms. Yet, given the significant headwinds that U.S.-based exchanges are facing we can expect a more prominent role for the euro in 2024.

Euro-denominated volume is rebounding, hitting €10.1bn in November

Market share of EUR volume relative to USD has more than doubled to 17.2%.

Pt. 2: European Crypto Exchanges

Over the past year, we’ve seen a growing number of exchanges establish European headquarters to cater for the regions large consumer trading community.

Just five exchanges account for 97% of euro-denominated volume, with Bitvavo possessing the largest share in November.

In 2023, Bitvavo claimed the largest cumulative euro volumes at more than €26bn, with Kraken in a close second at €25bn.

Pt. 3: European Token Trends

European traders by far favored bitcoin in 2023, which enjoyed significant gains throughout the final quarter of the year.

More than €32bn in trades were done for BTC, compared with just €13.2bn for ETH and €8.7bn for XRP.
