Prominent Chinese journalist Colin Wu has commented on data recently shared by ICO Analytics.

The table shows that, recently, centralized exchanges have been losing traffic to dexes, which have been emerging fast recently. On the contrary, the Uniswap dex had a traffic rise of 43 percent.

Uniswap traffic surged 43 percent, unlike mainstream CEX exchanges

As per data shared by Wu, top-tier centralized platformsBinance, KuCoin, Coibase and BitMEXfaced a major traffic plunge in September.

Binance traffic was down 14 percent, Coinbase's 23 percent, BitMEX lost 21 percent and KuCoin was down by 25 percent.

Unlike these exchanges, commented Wu, decentralized exchanges saw major growth in their traffic figures. One of them, Ethereum-based Uniswap, saw its traffic rise 43 percent.

Can this data be trusted?

Curiously, in the second tweet, the journalist states that this data must be approached very carefully, since it may not be quite reliable.

The reason is that it is not possible to count APP traffic and that Chinese web traffic analytics are often seriously falsified.

Still, Wu pointed out that centralized trading platforms are undergoing serious changes from dexes:

Centralized exchanges are facing severe challenges from DEX. However, there are two problems with this statistics. First, it is impossible to count APP traffic, and second, Chinese website traffic generally has serious falsified data behavior.
