... Chasing fake volume: a crypto-plague In this piece I will expose why I believe more than $3 billion of all cryptoassets’ volume to be fabricated, and how OKex, #1 exchange rated by volume, is the main offender with up to 93% of its volume being nonexistent. I’ll endeavour to prove it by analyzing publicly available data Sylvain Ribes Trader and investor. Follow me on Twitter @ArtPlaie When I set out to datamine for this piece, I had no idea I would end up talking about fake volume. I initially meant to gather data about cryptoassets liquidity, that could be a complement to volume. I thought it would prove an interesting indicator when assessing the value of an asset.
