Bitcoin & Euro — a story of price discovery

Based on the market data that we dumped from Binance, Bitstamp, Coinbase and Kraken for the first week of June 2020, there is a clear leader that offers the deepest BTC/EUR liquidity. However, there are some details that should be considered when choosing a suitable trading venue.


  • Those who look for deeper crypto liquidity must look not at trading volume but the other liquidity metrics

  • BTC/EUR may appear a mature market with certain liquidity metrics smoothly fluctuating around its average values when the market is calm

  • However, the price shock on the 2nd of June has shown that the on-exchange liquidity is fragile that resulted in wider spreads and less depth across all observed exchanges

  • Bitstamp has better liquidity for the execution of big orders while other liquidity metrics are comparable with those of Coinbase Prime. Binance is lagging behind.
