OKX, a leading cryptocurrency exchange, recently announced its twelfth asset reserve certificate. The snapshot date for this certificate was October 24th. This announcement provides valuable insights into the asset holdings of OKX users, reflecting the dynamic nature of the cryptocurrency market.
According to the certificate, user Bitcoin (BTC) assets stood at 136,000, marking a decrease of 4.49% from the previous snapshot taken on September 18th. An OKX spokesperson commented on this trend, stating,
A reflection of market volatility
“The decrease in BTC assets reflects the market’s volatility. Our users are actively trading and adjusting their portfolios in response to market conditions.”
In contrast, user Ethereum (ETH) assets showed an increase. The total ETH holdings were 1.42 million, up by 3.5% from the last snapshot. This increase translates to an addition of 48,000 ETH.
A growing interest in Ethereum
The spokesperson added,
“The increase in ETH assets highlights the growing interest in Ethereum among our users. We believe this trend is driven by Ethereum’s potential and its diverse use-cases.”
The certificate also revealed that user Tether (USDT) assets were substantial, standing at 4.91 billion. USDT is a popular stablecoin pegged to the US dollar, offering users a way to mitigate the volatility typically associated with cryptocurrencies.
Finally, user USD Coin (USDC) assets were reported to be 318 million. Like USDT, USDC is also a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar.
A commitment to transparency
