Large on Bitshares exchange trade volume bitUSD
« on: February 08, 2015, 08:26:05 PM »

I noticed on coinmarketcap.com that 'on bitshares exchange' trade volume for bitUSD is very high. Such that total trade volume for bitUSD places it at number 5 when ranking 'currencies' on the site by trade volume.

Any ideas why this may be the case. Has it always been this high or is this recent. I cant find a chart to show trade volume over time.

Perhaps the new mine bitUSD pool?

Pretty sure thats due to some short expirations being covered.

It's due to some old shorts expiring and being forced to cover, see this thread for more info: https://bitsharestalk.org/index.php?topic=14075.0
