Factors Influencing a Crypto Exchange's Liquidity

What is Crypto Exchange Liquidity?

Think about crypto liquidity as some quantity of water in a bowl. If you put a massive object into that bowl, the water would seem to go up, but if throw a tiny ball in, there will be less impact on the physical water volume. The same goes for cryptocurrencies, if you buy a large quantity of crypto, the price will surge, if you sell a large quantity, the price will go down just like removing a large object from the water. If you pour the water left after removing the large object into the same bowl, chances are it will be less than it was before you put the object in. That is what happens when you sell a huge amount, let's say millions in cryptocurrency, the price goes down because of your large buying pressure.

For cryptocurrencies and exchanges, liquidity refers to how easily coins, currency, or assets can be converted into cash or other coins. A cryptocurrency's liquidity refers to market fluctuations that determine how much of it can be exchanged for other assets and the ease of exchanging the cryptocurrency in question for other cryptocurrencies. Highly liquid cryptocurrencies are easily convertible to other assets. Meanwhile, low liquidity also known as illiquid means that it is not as easy to convert that crypto asset to other cryptocurrencies or vice versa. It is hard to get trades executed in low liquid markets whereas it is easy to do the same in highly liquid markets. The higher the liquidity available on an exchange platform, the easier it will be for cryptocurrencies to be exchanged on the platform. Hence liquidity is essential for the full functionality of an exchange.

Different Types of Liquidity

Liquidity in the context of cryptocurrency can be divided into three categories:

Asset liquidity, the first category of liquidity, refers to the ease with which assets can be sold or converted into cash. Since cash is by itself highly acceptable, it is most commonly when buying or selling cryptocurrency. The process that defines liquidity involves the exchange of one cryptocurrency for cash, and other digital currencies. The cryptocurrencies exchanged for cash in this case are our assets. The market value at the time of the exchange determines what quantity of an asset can be exchanged for some equivalent quantity of another. The biggest factor affecting asset liquidity is the volatility of cryptocurrencies which affects the willingness of market makers to provide funds to enable transactions on the exchange.

The second category is market liquidity, which refers to markets where assets can be easily sold or bought based on the individual's needs and desired prices. If cryptocurrencies can be easily sold and bought on an exchange, and the exchange can support a large number of buyers and sellers, such an exchange has high liquidity. If a large number of people use the exchange, it already has liquidity and so customers are drawn to it. Illiquid markets are exchanges where buying and selling are difficult or only possible with limited assets. The value of cryptocurrencies also fluctuates which can affect the liquidity available.

In blockchain accounting, liquidity refers to the stability of asset market value. It essentially defines a cryptocurrency’s ability to be redeemed for whatever asset is preferred by the holders of that cryptocurrency at any given time. It is essentially how easy it is to sell that cryptocurrency on the market without having much impact on the current price. Liquid cryptocurrencies have a relatively stable value compared to illiquid cryptocurrencies. Blockchain accounting view of liquidity defines liquidity in terms of the overall success of the cryptocurrency project which makes the asset an asset of choice preferred by all.

Why Liquidity is Important?

Liquidity is one of the most crucial considerations in trading cryptocurrencies and deciding what exchange to use.

Stable Price Trades

Having a large number of good crypto traders and users on an exchange platform makes for more stable prices on an exchange. The number of users keeps the cryptocurrency and the platform intact. This is because if more users want to buy cryptocurrency from the sellers, the sellers can make a competitive bid on the coins. As a result, the cryptocurrency's bids rise and users purchase it at a premium. Market stability is created, and trade prices continue to rise, resulting in market equilibrium. Prices remain stable, and liquidity rises, allowing assets to be traded more easily.

Fast Transactions

If the exchange platform has a high level of liquidity, the chances of faster transactions increase. When users demand it, the platform executes trades and orders quickly. A large amount of trading and asset tracking data is also available on liquid exchanges. If past transaction data is available on the platform, it is also very easy to predict where it will go in the future using charts and technical analysis. So users interested in profiting from price differences are often interested in exchanges that offer high liquidity.

Stability of Cryptocurrency

High liquidity is critical for the stability of any cryptocurrency. It keeps fluctuations of the market under control and impacts the value of the cryptocurrency. Stability also improves future value predictions, allowing traders to invest with some level of precision.

Factors that Influence Liquidity on Crypto’s Exchange

Several factors influence the liquidity of the cryptocurrency and its platform.

Number of Users

The number of active computers accessing an exchange has a huge influence on exchange liquidity. The number of cryptocurrency users or wallets shows those who believe in particular cryptocurrency exchange and are already using it. The presence of a large number of users indicates a strong community. Meanwhile, the low number of users indicates that the community is weak and that exchange is not so liquid and could amount to a poor experience. The network's strength is also considered weak if its users are few, because the number of sellers will be very low, and they may sell it at high prices. Again, there may be delays and lags in trade execution.

Trading Indicators

Trading indicators have an impact on liquidity because when traders invest in coins, they predict their values. The number of transactions in the previous 24-48 hours predicts the values. Indicators also display the trading volume or the amount of money in which the specific cryptocurrency is traded. Users can decide which coins are rising in value in comparison to others using a number of these indicators. The trading charts on any exchange should be reliable so that users can decide on what to do based on market facts.

Acceptance of Particular Cryptocurrencies

Another factor influencing the liquidity of a crypto exchange is the global acceptance of cryptocurrencies traded on that exchange. The success of bitcoin, or any cryptocurrency, is determined by the amount of usage by users. It takes a large number of people and large networks to accept a cryptocurrency for it to be listed and traded on an exchange. So as a particular cryptocurrency with a large following, believers, and users get listed on an exchange, the volume and quantity of transactions will increase as lots of people try to get on the platform. Another important thing that can drive adoption and liquidity on an exchange is when the traded assets are accepted by large corporations, merchants, traders, and businesses so that users can make payments in cryptocurrency. When users can buy a token that is accepted by several third-party companies and merchants on an exchange the liquidity in that asset will surge dramatically with time.

Cryptocurrency Exchange Platforms

Several cryptocurrency exchange platforms exist where traders can easily buy and sell their assets. These platforms increase the number of trades in the market, increasing liquidity. Exchanges increase trades because they make trades easier for users and allow them to easily obtain assets. So like complementary demand if pairs of an asset needed by traders or users are available on one exchange, they can buy that asset from other exchanges and sell it elsewhere. Exchange platforms are currently divided into two types: Exchange platforms and peer-to-peer platforms. There are over 300 exchange platforms but only a few P2P platforms.

Ban of Cryptocurrency

Trading of cryptocurrency is explicitly banned in a few countries, which has a significant impact on the liquidity of the cryptocurrency platform in those countries. Many countries have established trading rules and regulations that make it difficult for users to purchase assets, which has a significant impact on liquidity. If anyone wants to buy cryptocurrency in these countries, they must do so privately or through P2P (peer-to-peer) platforms that are available. In such countries, there are only a few exchanges that cater to the users which leads to high fees. As a result, lots of people are less inclined to trade cryptocurrencies leading to lower liquidity.

How to Choose the Best Liquidity Provider to Buy Cryptocurrency

When purchasing cryptocurrency, it is essential to find the best liquidity provider so that you can choose based on your needs and requirements. There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing a liquidity provider.

Choose the Perfect Offer

When looking for the best liquidity provider, brokers should always consider the overall offer or package that is being offered. The provider must provide liquidity for the cryptocurrencies you require. It is recommended that you consider the offer properly before using the service. Another critical component is that multi-asset liquidity is provided with historical data at all times. Any cryptocurrency or major asset should be able to be withdrawn and deposited.

Understanding of the Market

Liquidity providers should be well-versed in the market and cryptocurrency to guide users. The greater the number of buyers and sellers, the greater the experience on the exchange and market depth. They will have repeat customers if the users like their services, and the new user will be able to easily choose.

Fast and Reliable Executions

One of the priorities for liquidity providers should be fast execution, which means they should be able to offer quick trades. The trade should include a comprehensive post-trade that is also transparent. The providers' execution systems should be detailed, especially during the release of market data or any unexpected event that can take place. The detailed execution and statistics should be easily accessible to the users. Many providers use automated software or apps to keep track of it and generate detailed statistics for users. Brokers can compile statistics and analyze user feedback on various providers.

Pricing of the Liquidity

When selecting a liquidity provider, ensure that they offer reasonable payouts, competitive spreads, and reasonable margins. Brokers should ensure that no futures-based instruments are charged in terms of modifications without any compromise on either side. Only a small number of liquidity providers offer a service that is both trustworthy and well-liked and accepted by clients.

Accurate Feeds

The exchange should show you the accurate feeds without any spikes in them. These information and value charts should be as it is and accurate with the FX markets and underlying instruments. You should always cross-check the values provided in the feed with the actual market data values yourself.

B2B Brokers and How to Choose a B2B Broker for Liquidity

The most important aspect of cryptocurrency is liquidity, which people require when buying or selling assets. Many brokers have recognized the demand for this niche and have begun to move toward it.

B2B brokers are one of the leading providers of cryptocurrency in the industry. The services that are provided by the B2B brokers are easy to implement and understand. They are the ultimate solution for the brokers. Users of B2B brokers use the method of best bid-offer for crypto exchange development services which is also called ‘BBO’. The B2B brokers accept almost all major stable cryptos or coins for fast withdrawals and deposits to avoid any delay in the needs of the brokers.

What Are Crypto Liquidity Pools?

Crypto liquidity pools are virtual platforms that are created by cryptocurrency exchange developers. In these pools, trading takes place, and businesses or users profit. It is a pool of tokens with algorithms or smart contracts that regulate trades between buyers and sellers. These pools provide users and sellers with a platform with liquidity to easily buy and sell. Since the process is automated, there is no interference or delay as tokens can be easily transferred between users as they exchange cryptocurrencies. Liquidity providers on these kinds of exchanges add pairs of stablecoins or other tokens to pools and the price is determined by transactions in the pool. Buyers and sellers simply take one token and add another to the pool causing the pool to rebalance.

When people trade in the pools, the liquidity provider earns money in the form of trading fees. Adding money to earn these fees is also known as liquidity mining among liquidity providers. The liquidity provider earns between 2% and 50% of its annual revenue from this mining. They are constantly changing platforms to increase their earnings. Owing to the high demand for these pools, they are constantly expanding. Many startups and traders are gravitating toward automated liquidity pools, pushing them further into the mainstream.
