Bybit Reports 1,437% Surge in USDC Trading Volume Amid Crypto Volatility

Bybit, the cryptocurrency exchange established in 2018, has reported a significant increase in trading volume for USDC pairs as it ramps up efforts to meet market demands. The surge in trading activity can be attributed to the trust that traders, institutions, and investors put in the platform’s battle-tested trading engine, proof of reserves, and sound risk management.

Bybit’s success in navigating the recent crypto and banking volatility is reflected in its expanding user base, which has grown rapidly throughout 2022 despite challenges.

The spot market volume for USDC grew an astonishing 1,437%, with USDC contribution to the total spot trading volume rising from 8% to 40%. Bybit’s perpetual market saw the daily trading volume of the USDC/USDT pair exceed $380 million, and the annualized funding rate reach as high as 740%. Bybit is also offering zero fees on its options contracts and zero fees on all USDC Spot pairs and major stablecoin pairs such as USDC/USDT, BUSD/USDT, DAI/USDT, and WBTC/BTC to optimize the trading experience and flexibility in portfolio management.

In addition, Bybit has launched Bybit Wallet, which allows users to access decentralized finance apps while keeping their funds safe in custody. The company has also launched Bybit Card, a debit card powered by the Mastercard network, which enables users to off-ramp crypto into fiat to easily make purchases or take out cash from ATMs. The digital card is already available with preorders for the physical card commencing on March 17.

He concluded that Bybit is a reliable and transparent choice for investors during high volatility and is on track to becoming the go-to “Crypto Ark” for investors worldwide.
