Decentralized exchange volume surge on Fantom

Crypto Data Analyst Subin An, from Hashed, emphasizes the heartening trend in the Fantom ecosystem through a recent assessment. However, for DeFi, DEX volume has been going down since the summer of 2020; however, the past week has been a different experience. The jury is out in this case, but An’s observations provide evidence that Fantom might see a bullish period soon. Not only are investors and enthusiasts following it, but it is also attracting more investors and tech fans alike.

SpookySwap, a decentralized exchange built on Fantom hat company’s network, takes the lead with a record trading volume of $81.8 million in the last week. This corresponds to an almost two-and-a-half times growth. Other DEXs like Equalizer and Beethoven_x run on Fantom and have more than 2x active volume. Such figures indicate that the FMSM is doing well. They show increased demand, the number of trades, and the volume of the exchange, which are multiplying as the DeFi market expands.
