LightCrypto said that China's demand for cryptocurrencies is recovering and rising. After more than a year of relative calm in the market, this trend is taking shape, and people can't help but think of the time when the trading volume in the Chinese market dominates the entire trading market.
What is happening behind this sudden risk appetite? The Hang Seng Index has risen by 20% since the end of 2018, while the leveraged trading volume has nearly doubled from December last year.

At the end of 2016, more than 90% of the Bitcoin trading volume came from the RMB trading pair. Since China reorganized cryptocurrency transactions in 2016 and 2017, this figure has fallen below 1%. Investors have turned to the OTC market to fill this gap, and cryptocurrencies have once again gained a premium (about 5% today).

Macro trends are taking shape, but it is important to note that retail investors and market-driven traders are an extremely volatile camp. A bit of turmoil can cause panic and cannot be used as a benchmark for whether the market turns bears into cattle. (Babbit Information)
