June 2019 Cryptocurrency Blockchain & Alert Signal Report

June 2019 Blockchain & Alert Signal Analysis

By | Blockchain & Alert Signal Report, Coinscious Lab, Data Analytics | No Comments

Overview

Released monthly, this report consists of the following two sections: 

  1. Blockchain transaction statistics and simple correlation analysis to Bitcoin (BTC)  price, and 
  2. Summary of alert system statistics from June 1, 2019 to June 30, 2019. 

Our blockchain transaction statistics are based on Coinscious’ blockchain data for BTC, Ethererum (ETH), and Tether (USDT). For our analysis, we filter out all transactions that are less than $100,000 USD, 25 BTC, and 750 ETH. Next, we compare the flow of transaction volumes in and out, as well as the transaction amounts throughout the month. We also visualize the net transaction trend using BTC daily price.

In our alert system summary, we look at signals produced by Coinscious’ alert system such as:

  • price pump and dump signals,
  • volume spike and drop signals, and 
  • relative strength indicator (RSI) signals at daily ticks. 

Here, we provide investigate statistics on BTC, ETH, and XRP for USD, CAD, and USDT currencies for different cryptocurrency exchanges. The summary statistics illustrates how often extreme events occur for each market. 

Blockchain Transaction

Cryptocurrency Blockchain Transaction - Price versus net transaction correlation BTC, ETH, USDT

Figure 1 illustrates BTC price and blockchain transactions going in and out of cryptocurrency exchanges for BTC, ETH, and USDT.  

The first row in Figure 1 demonstrates that BTC price has steadily increased in June. The net USDT transactions into cryptocurrency exchanges are positive throughout June. Interestingly, we see a positive correlation between BTC price and ETH net transactions – the price of BTC rises when ETH net transaction is positive, and the price of BTC falls when ETH net transaction is negative. 

The third row in Figure 1 illustrates that USDT had the most active transactions in June, followed by BTC and ETH. However, even though ETH had the smallest number of transactions, its transaction size is the greatest, followed by BTC and USDT as shown in the second row of Figure 1.
