The unexpected surge in December’s crypto trading activity was attributed to the industry’s collective optimism surrounding the potential approval of spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs).

Steven Zheng, Director of Research at The Block, notes that December, historically a slower month for crypto trading, saw unprecedented enthusiasm, indicating the anticipation of spot bitcoin ETF approval and the resurgence of a bullish market. The rising anticipation of Bitcoin ETFs also triggered the price of Bitcoin to surge past $45,000.

However, a recent report from Matrix Port and a liquidation surge caused Bitcoin to plunge to $42,000. Data from CoinMarketCap also shows that the 24-hour global crypto trading volume stood at $118.36 billion, depicting a 64.43% surge in the last 24 hours.
