INTRODUCTION

Even with the 100s of cryptocurrency exchanges in existence today, no-one really knows what crypto traders are looking for. By completing this survey, you will help exchanges be more effective at servicing the needs of traders and help the cryptocurrency industry understand this vital function.
***
Cryptocurrency exchanges provide vital on-off ramps for users who would like to buy or sell cryptocurrency. It is one of the first sectors to have emerged and the largest sector in the industry. At the time of writing, CoinMarketCap lists 223 exchanges, 1,663 cryptocurrencies and 12,093 trading pairs, with a market cap of $299bn and 24hr trading volume of $20bn.

Despite the recent proliferation of exchanges, and their vital role in the success of this new industry, our industry doesn’t know much about cryptocurrency traders: we don’t know how to describe this sector, how big it is, or what traders care about. The one thing that differentiates cryptocurrency from other asset classes is liquidity and yet we don’t know who traders are or how they provide liquidity.

This Crypto Trader Benchmarking Study is a quantitative study of the composition and behaviors of the traders who provide liquidity to the cryptocurrency market and who are key to its success.

Newtown Partners is excited to contribute the results of this research to the ever-evolving cryptocurrency industry in the hopes that it will aid a better understanding of a driving force behind the industry's success and that we will not just see more, but also more effective cryptocurrency exchanges.

All identifying information will be anonymized and only presented in aggregate form (e.g. by country). If you would like to receive a copy of the research report, please provide your email address at the end of this survey, alternatively, the report will be made publicly available when published.
