Coinbase passes Bitstamp for 3rd in BTCUSD
@KittyBitcoin paws at this week’s bitcoin exchange percentage marketshare “wool ball”. We look at
$XBTCNY, $XBTUSD, $XBTEUR & $XBTGBP. Estimated read less than 5 minutes. Who did what –
and how did it unravel?
@TheMerkleNews BTC Price Index – weekly
The @TheMerkleNews 7 day chart opened Friday at ~ $379.31 down from $391 per bitcoin the previous
week. BTC traded unsettled within a $10 range until it bottomed at $369.69 on Wednesday and doubled
its range to $390.64 on Thursday – on a comparatively low 24 hour volume of $125M.
The balance of the week saw vagarious and relatively steady price levels until the end of the week. The
market average bitcoin price “closed” Friday at $387.61 on a falling price. As a result the difference
between the week start and end trading price was $9.27 and very close to last week’s numbers.
Low price of the week was Monday at $368.84. High price was Friday at $391.89. The difference – the
weekly high low range – is $23.05 down from last week’s range of $35.

their performance the week before:

While @Bitfinex tops the BTCUSD list with @OKCoinBTC second, the surprise this week is
@coinbase taking a third position in BTCUSD traded, surpassing @bitstamp, @btcecom and @bitx2014.
@itbit, @lakeBTC and @gatecoin round out the XBTUSD weekly picture.
$XBTUSD previous week
The only positional changes in XBTEUR this week were @HitBTC moving up from bottom to replace
cex.io which dropped a notch.
This is significant as it indicates it was no flash in the pan last week for @gatecoin to climb to number
two position, now holding that rank two weeks in a row.
