In the Crypto-exchange rankings of CoinMarketCap (CMC) for daily traded volumes, however, some major upheavals are underway. Today, the Chinese exchange of ZB.com recorded an increase of 80% of the 24-hour trading volume to reach $ 606.7 million and replace Binance as the highest exchange on CMC.
ZB.com is currently ranked as the largest global exchange; however, during the period in which I am writing, a separate China-based exchange, LBank, leapt in and out of first place, at several points, recording over 150 percent of the increase in bargaining throughout the day to reach volumes of ~ $ 800-900 million. Up to the time of the press, trading volumes were short-lived at ~ $ 380 million, returning to fourth place.

Meanwhile, trading volumes on the previously improved Binance platform have plummeted by 14%, recording ~ $ 550 million in trade.
"It looks like a ton of manipulation of the market by zb.com that absorbs most of the digital resources and tries to pump logs in. The Chinese are downloading and pumping last night[.]"
Meanwhile, according to a tweet from ZB.com, on January 16th, the Crypto ranking website has CoinGecko released its exchange rankings for the fourth quarter of 2018, which places ZB.com as the second largest in terms of median volume:

About against the current in a tweet released today, Morgan Creek investment analyst Chris King said:
"I was used to beating the table on tokenized securities.When new market information was presented, I completely changed my opinion.Not much value will be captured by traditional" tokenizing "securities – without liquidity or liquidity premium – Demand – not creating value. "
Securitized securities are gaining significant traction with industry leaders, as exemplified by the words of Bitcoin bull and co-founder of the Gemini exchange, Cameron Winklevoss, who recently observed:
"I think the next wave will see real innovation, and really interesting assets that become tokenised – like real estate, like buildings that are not currently traded in a really liquid way, so it's exciting."
