Binance cryptocurrency exchange: 2022 volumes so far similar to 2021’s $34 trillion

Data from Bloomberg showed the largest digital token by market value fell 15% to $17,599 on Saturday, marking a record 12th consecutive daily decline.

But this is still only the biggest drop since Monday. The currency recouped some of those losses and last traded at $19,075 early Sunday.

Ether fell 19% to $881, the lowest since January 2021, before climbing 11% to $1,005 on Sunday morning. Both are down more than 70% from all-time highs set in early November.
