Popular data provider Santiment has tweeted that, while Bitcoin reached a new all-time high earlier today and touched the $58,400 level, the volume of Bitcoin on-chain transactions keeps rising.
Bitcoin on-chain volume matches that of January 2018
Santiment analytics team has taken to Twitter to announce that, while the world's flagship cryptocurrency has tapped another consecutive all-time high of $58,355, the volume of Bitcoin on-chain transactions continues to rise.
As per the tweet, the recent daily average value was close to $28 billion, which is similar to the on-chain BTC volume seen in January 2018—the period after Bitcoin hit $20,000 for the first time and the start of the so-called crypto winter that lasted for about two years.
As for the previous all-time high, on Saturday, Bitcoin sprang above the $57,000 mark.
On-chain transfers are verified and recorded on the blockchain. Off-chain transactions refer to purchases of small things with cash or spending money via payment systems such as PayPal.
